The Organization: Audacious Futures
We are a global innovation launchpad that designs and builds solutions powering individuals, organizations, and societies to become and stay future ready. Our culture can be best described as asking big questions about the world, practicing radical candor with each other, and Getting S&%# Done (aka GSDing) together.
The Product: FutureFit AI
Among other projects and ventures, Audacious Futures is incubating FutureFit AI, an AI-powered upskilling / reskilling solution for enterprises and governments.
We think of it as the Google Maps for the Future of Work and Learning. It powers you to "explore" the world of careers and skills, set a "destination" for where you want to go next, it "locates" where you are starting from, recommends "pathways" to get there, and "guides" you along the way with both human and technology supports.
FutureFit AI has been selected as a Top 25 finalist, Judges' Winner, and People's Choice Winner of innovations re-imagining the future of work and learning by the United States Department of Education. It is also the winner of a $1M prize in Canada.

Consider these our best sense of what would make you successful in the role. That said, don't let them detract you from reaching out if you believe you have the core capabilities to help us achieve our goals and can learn the rest on the fly. You'll also notice we have no degree requirements as we don't believe they are a good proxy for skills.
