Meet the Team
Hear from some of our team what they think about working for Kortext.
Elena - Financial Controller
I am the Financial Controller at Kortext. Prior to Kortext I worked in Russia, Amsterdam, and Dubai for a few well-known multinational companies. But if I could pick my favourite I would choose Kortext because of its diversity and flexibility.
I enjoy working with interesting and professional people. I never feel bored and always learn something new here. If I can describe Kortext in a few words - it’s like a talented teenager.
Deniz - Freelance Illustrator
I completed my Illustration degree at Arts University Bournemouth. I started my journey with Kortext during my studies working as a Visual Designer Intern back in May 2018. Right from the very first interview, I felt like I was joining a great team.
The Kortext family is genuinely invested in my personal and professional growth. My successful internship experience helped me continue my journey with Kortext, setting up as a Freelance Illustrator after graduation. It’s exciting and motivating to work with people that have the same drive with a clear vision.
Fran - National Projects and Partnerships
Following graduation I joined an academic publisher to begin my career in the publishing industry, I then moved to media and marketing, but returned to the industry I’m most passionate about when I joined Kortext at the start of 2018.
My role in the company involves building our relationship with global partners to increase the Kortext offering and building our international opportunities. It’s a dynamic and varied role in a modern and progressive company!
Jody - Architect for Web Client Applications
I lead the development and architectural planning of front-end technologies, for the Kortext web platform. This includes day-to-day development work and overseeing the structural planning of current and future products, from a client-side technology perspective. Since I joined the team, I’ve enjoyed making significant contributions to the platform and seeing our customer base grow as a result.
Kortext is fantastic product, with an ever-evolving potential and the wide and varied expertise within our team, means I’ve always got something new to learn. It’s a great place to work.
Placements & Internships
We work closely with universities to offer an exciting range of paid part-time, full-time and holiday internships and placements to talented third and final year students and recent graduates. Here are some of our recent success stories...
Jesika - Operation Admin Assistant
So far my time with Kortext has been a very positive experience as I not only have been able to enhance my skills but also see in first hand how the company is trying its best to provide an invaluable service to universities and students around the world during challenging times. Working as an operation admin assistant in the publisher services team, I have had the opportunity to learn more about the different existing publishers as well as provide administrative support by creating spreadsheets and verifying the availability of e-textbooks on our database.
This role has required me to become more flexible, organised, attentive to detail, and communicative.
Hamza - Software Quality Assurance Analyst
My role in Kortext was my first ever professional working experience with any company and it was a great experience for me as the team is very very supportive and guides me at every step. What I've learned is how to test WEB, Desktop, Android & iOS applications to fulfill client requirements, this can be achieved by working closely with developers and business analysts in an agile environment to ensure all bugs and improvements are caught and acted upon at the earliest opportunity.
Meghna - Content Intern
My name is Meghna and I am a software engineering graduate. I started my journey at Kortext during my studies working as an intern in the Content Team. With the amazing support from my team, the transition into different areas of work was smooth and seamless and the team has been very welcoming. This internship allowed me to use my skills and learn new ones.
Emily - Commercial Assistant
My three months interning within the marketing department at Kortext was a valuable and enjoyable experience, the whole Kortext team was helpful and friendly from day one. While working for the company we were offered full training in areas of the business we were interested in and given opportunities to work on rewarding projects and campaigns and learn about all aspects of the company.
I met some great people and gained many invaluable skills in my time at Kortext, I would highly recommend anyone looking to gain work experience to apply to work here!
