The past years have brought us significant growth on Youtube (from 100k subscribers to over 1 million). We have grown 98% organically and we are in the process of scaling our business with ads. There is a project to potentially duplicate the channel in Portuguese and we are also adding new and exciting courses. With our growth comes a need to expand our team to include amazing and talented people, such as you!
