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 technology is built for deskworkers. We set out to build for the "deskless" workforce.

Our story starts a few years back when we provided English training in kitchens. Back then we were called "ESL Works". Many years and many kitchens later, we expanded our vision dramatically.

Opus is a mobile-first learning platform that delivers chat-based microtraining. 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 aim to create space for everyone in the new era of work.
