    About Us

    HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters, Co-Founder and CEO, and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. Wouldn?t it be better, he thought, to use their smartphones to study? When he couldn't find an effective mobile-learning solution, he decided to create it.

    HLT is a 2012 Iowa City-born start-up that develops education apps for smartphones and tablets so that busy students can effectively study anytime and anywhere. We are targeting the multi-billion dollar markets for higher education, with a focus on high-stakes exams and classes. Mobile is one of the fastest growing markets in history and HLT has emerged as a market leader with the most popular, highest grossing and most downloaded of all test prep apps on both Android and Apple devices. The company has now raised $15MM in funding and partnered with some of the biggest names in education including McGraw-Hill, Wiley, Kaplan, and many others.

    As a young EdTech company bent on transforming the way learners experience education, our status quo is constant motion. This requires us to embrace change and be bold and imaginative in how we work. The same is true for who we hire. We need smart, tenacious, team-centric people who share our curiosity of the world and learning-obsessed mindset. We need problem solvers who love tackling big challenges and can flex quickly to rapidly moving parts. We need drivers who own their actions and have the propensity for getting this done.

    Although what got us here won?t get us there, we hold tightly to a set of core values to Innovate, Captivate, and Educate. These ideals are the heartbeat of our company, and we are rigorous in identifying these qualities in the people we hire.
