Workera is a skills verification platform that helps enterprises evaluate, develop, and optimize the skills of their workforce, particularly in areas like data science, machine learning, and software engineering.

  • Workera was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

  • Workera's platform uses AI and a large skills dataset to accurately measure and assess the skills of employees across thousands of critical and emerging skill areas. This provides enterprises with detailed insights into their workforce capabilities.

  • Workera's solutions are used by large enterprises like Accenture, Siemens Energy, the U.S. Air Force, and Samsung to upskill and reskill their employees, identify skill gaps, and make better-informed talent decisions.

  • Workera was co-founded by Kian Katanforoosh, an award-winning lecturer at Stanford University, and Andrew Ng, a pioneer in machine learning and online education.

Workera takes broad skills domains and breaks them down into specific topics, sub-topics, and skills - then validates these skills through specific assessments. The assessments are continuously updated by Workera psychologists and academics.
