Who We Are

HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters (Co-Founder and CEO) and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. After getting tired of carrying around thousands of flashcards, he asked himself: Why can’t I just use my phone to study? When he didn’t find an effective mobile learning solution, he decided to create it. Since its start in 2012, HLT has attracted millions of learners and has become the market-leading platform for mobile learning applications.

  • Can solve problems in a fast paced environment
  • Has a passion for continuous learning and improvement

How We Work

Our tech stack consists of Vue.js, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Heroku.

While HLT’s home office is in Coralville, Iowa, our developers are spread across the western hemisphere. We just need you to be online and available via Slack during regular business hours.

  • Health, dental, and vision
  • Unlimited PTO (yes, you can actually use it)
  • Remote working
