The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people’s heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds — from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences — so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge, and we’re building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.
About the Team:
Quora’s Writer Growth team focuses on driving impact by executing scaled writer growth programs, measuring impact, and scaling those programs when we find success. We’re a group of ambitious, entrepreneurial individuals who love interacting with our writers, as well as launching and optimizing the strategic processes by which we serve them. We strive to be experts in growth strategies, marketing, scaled sales, and customer service and we move quickly to deliver impact.
