Head of People – Digiexam

Digiexam is a Swedish SaaS and EdTech innovator company, founded in 2011. The company offers an exam platform that schools, universities and educators utilises to create, schedule, distribute, grade and publish high-stakes exams and academic tests. The idea originates from the time when the two founders were studying at the Stockholm School of Economics, taking exams with pen and paper. Back then, no school or university carried out exams digitally and that was the starting point for their innovative new product. With the student perspective as background and with a huge market potential, a successful EdTech company took form.

Today, Digiexam is a continuously growing exam platform that proudly helps and supports over +400 leading universities, schools, and institutions to do high-stakes testing and exams, on-campus and remote.
