Connexio: Mobile & Web Developer

ABOUT CONNEXIO

Connexio connects students who want to study internationally with universities around the world. Why should only a few students have access to options and resources to study internationally? Connexio is out to change that. Our aim to make international education options available to all students in the world and make classes more diverse. We want to change the experience of finding the best-fit students and universities easier and pleasurable for both sides. Connexio started in 2018 and our team is growing fast and our platform is helping students globally find admission opportunities with US and Canadian universities. We are headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. If you’re a friendly, passionate, lifelong learner who’s looking to make a real difference in students’ lives, we want you to help us level the educational playing field. We also believe it’s really important that our team reflects the diversity of our students. We strongly encourage members of diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply.
