Orenda is a young company that has been providing education to underserved populations for the past two years.

Craziness: Anyone who applies needs to be a dreamer, and should have an ability to generate the most outrageous of ideas. This is a skill that makes every Orendian special at what they do, and allows us to keep on pushing the envelope in terms of what is possible in education.
Adaptability: The candidate will be required to use different mediums and techniques required for creating digital content, hence willingness and openness to learn new skills such as animation, design, on-screen appearances and doing voice-overs will be critical.
