About Knowledge E
We are a passionate team of 30+ hands-on entrepreneurs, engineers and research domain experts that want to make the lives of researchers a great deal easier and a bit more fun and make as significant behind-the-scene-contributions as possible to help advance research and innovation. We are funded through our existing content subscription-based business and grow steadily through new research institutions turning to us for our more recent publishing, discovery and capacity-building training services.
In the development team, we are leveraging leading edge technology in an open collaboration with a range of other innovative partners in the publishing and research domain. The first version of the new platform was released in 2017 towards institutions and has successfully been rolled out across a set of initial client organisations. In October 2018, the platform was released as Zendy, directly targeted towards individuals. Zendy provides access to around 100 million publication records for free, and an important next milestone is to release Zendy Premium in a first country. Zendy Premium will offer individuals access to paid academic content for an affordable monthly or annual fee.
We believe in nurturing a creative and open workplace where people enjoy coming to work every day. We are therefore looking for team members who are truly passionate about what they do and that go the extra mile to provide an outstanding service and experiences to the research community that we are serving. We offer a competitive salary and great benefits like healthcare, a flexible vacation policy, and more. We are based in the easily accessible X2 Tower in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, 5 minutes by foot from the metro, with splendid views of Dubai.
