What is Aula? 🐝
Aula is a remote-first 40-person team from 12 nationalities building a communication platform for education. Think ‘Slack for Education’.
Powered by an ecosystem of integrations, Aula is the foundational layer in the university tech stack that shapes a whole industry.
We built Aula because we believe digital infrastructure should encourage community and participation-based learning.
We’re backed by people like the founder of Unity, CTO at Eventbrite, a co-founder of Zendesk, a co-founder of JustEat and world-class VCs like Project A, BrightEye and Sunstone.

Who we're building for
We're currently building for educators and students at universities. See what that means here:
How our users benefit
-Students:Aula means less one-way communication from the teacher, more collaboration with fellow students and easier access to student services like the welfare team. We aim to give every single student the sense of being part of their university’s community.
-Educators: Aula means connecting with every student in your class and creating a truly engaging learning experience in a welcoming atmosphere.
-Universities: Aula is a digital campus where the sense of belonging lowers student dropout rates and enables a move of focus from physical building to crafting distributed student experiences.
How our development team will look in 12 months
Each product area will be led by a duo of a tech lead and a product manager, supported by full-stack contributors and tech leads on cross-platform areas like UI.
