Canopeers

Canopeer

can·​oh·​peer

noun

1. Someone set out on a vision to empower the world to learn, oh and that is part of the Canopy Study team.

Mission

Providing people around the world with AI-powered learning to reach their maximum potential.

Values

What we stand for and celebrate as a team.

Infinite learning

We’re a non-stop shop for learning, adapting, and daily improvements. It all starts with being forever curious, about absolutely everything. Curiosity incites creativity, and creative people change the world.

Open, and open minded.

We communicate with transparency in mind. We care about ideas and our mission above all else. This is how we communicate outward and include others.

Think big, then think bigger.

We shoot for the stars, and then we shoot for the galaxy. If you think your ideas or thoughts are achievable, then think bigger. To be the hub of learning globally, we must remove our preconceived ideas of what is “normal”.

Always be questioning.

We invite everyone to go against what we think is right, and what we think we should do. It’s everyone’s right, and obligation to think and test the alternative, the what if.

Communicate often.

This means telling the team what you’re working on, and what your plan is. If you’re blocked, don’t wait to tell the team. Sitting on a problem for a day means that the company is not moving forward. At this stage, more communication is always better.

Take initiative.

See something wrong or something that can be done better? Don't hesitate, or wait for someone else to find it. Take action, communicate and if possible, fix it.

Move fast, learn fast.

Product Market Fit is one of the hardest problems we’ll have to solve. This means we need to iterate fast so we can test as many hypotheses as we can.

I'm usually winning in office table tennis tournaments, but when I'm not, I'm helping build incredible software with incredible people, and sourcing daily snacks for the team.

I take on a generalist role, from budgeting, to being the office mum, to sales. Outside of this, I spend countless of hours adding playlists to my endless Spotify collection, oh and eating all the daily snacks.

I love getting outside of my comfort zone and saying yes to more, usually by meeting new people, physically pushing myself during Krav Maga, or getting a skydiving licence. At Canopy, you’ll find me building product and infra, coaching, leading and doing all round company things.

I am the data wrangler around these parts. My time is divided between putting a mirror finish on our data, building systems that utilise it, and admiring the clouds that float past the window.
