Work at Edalex
Edalex is an edTech company on a mission to surface learning outcomes, digital assets and the power of individual achievement. Founded in 2016, Edalex develops technology solutions that extract hidden value from educational data to make it accessible and more meaningful. Edalex brings together the team behind the CODiE award-winning openEQUELLA open source platform that centrally houses teaching and learning, research, media and library content.
In 2019, Edalex launched Credentialate, the world's first Credential Evidence Platform, that helps discover and share evidence of workplace skills. Credentialate provides a Skills Core that creates order from chaotic data, provides meaningful insight through framework alignment and equips learners with rich personal industry-aligned evidence of their skills and competencies.
openRSD was released by Edalex in 2022 to help create, store and share rich skill descriptors (RSDs) and RSD collections. openRSD uses Edalex’s open source technology stack to create locally- and globally-relevant libraries of RSDs that are open to all contributors and consumers. RSDs are the building blocks of a skills-driven labour market. They structure skills data, add context around a particular skill and are both human and machine readable. RSDs bring equity to the learner and the skills ecosystem and provide an even playing field for skills recognition.

Our employee perks
Joining the Edalex team, you will not only be part of a leading edTech whose missions are impactful and worthwhile, but also receive many rewarding perks that extend beyond salaries and benefits for our team members:
Staff personal development
Since day one, Edalex thrives to become a happier and wiser workplace. We recognise up-skilled employees contribute to the overall productivity and strategic goals of the whole team, and employee personal development is a win-win for our business.
Once every 3 months, the first Thursday of each quarter is chosen as Edalex's Personal Development day. On this day, every team member is entitled to a full work day where they can take courses of their choices. The courses generally need to benefit their skills and knowledge in alignment with Edalex's strategic goals.
Experienced meeting fatigue at work before? Did it feel like you had nothing accomplished but meetings came one after another? At Edalex, we support finding ways to increase employees’ uninterrupted work time and daily productivity.
Recently adopted in all team member's weekly working agenda at Edalex, No-Meeting Thursday is a brilliant idea to increase productivity as it allows space for all team members to focus on deep work tasks and at the same time, encourages every one to use the rest of the week more efficiently and effectively.
Flexible working policy
Edalex is proud to have team members scattered across five states in Australia, with a potential of expanding our team overseas in the near future.
At Edalex, we care about creating a healthy work-life balance for everyone. We do our best to facilitate and accommodate any working arrangement requests made by staff members to help enhance their performance and working experiences. Hybrid work, work from home and remote work have become part of Edalex's norm.
We support Pledge 1% - a global movement to create a new normal in which giving back is integrated into the DNA of companies of all sizes.
Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to Pledge 1% of equity, profit, product, and/or employee time for their communities.
Edalex are proud to pledge 1% of employee’s time.
