Our mission

Create a world where every deskless worker has a good job

Hi, we're Opus.

80% of the global workforce doesn't sit at a desk all day, and yet 99% of tech is built for deskworkers. We set out to build for the majority workforce.

Our story starts a few years back when we provided English training to kitchen teams. Back then we were called "ESL Works".

Many years and many kitchens later, we expanded our vision dramatically.

Opus is a learning platform that delivers text message courses. Employers create. Managers connect. Employees engage, learn and grow.

We work with hundreds of companies, from restaurant groups to facilities companies and manufacturing plants.

When Coronavirus hit, we built StopCOVID.co to provide free, text message-based COVID-19 training to tens of thousands of essential workers.

We are a tech company, but we take a human-first approach to everything we build. We create space for everyone in the new era of work.
