Front End Software Engineer

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.
