Company

Questt.com is an ed-tech startup founded by serial entrepreneurs and BITS Pilani and IIT-D alumni. Questt is making education data-driven by simplifying homework for teachers and students.

Questt App


Questt is a remarkable homework app that lets teachers assign objective & subjective homework by choosing from a question bank. It also gamifies homework for students.

Questt helps teachers evaluate homework/assignments 10x faster and captures 100x more data points than any other existing system.

While Questt automates the teacher’s job, it fundamentally disrupts education by replacing marks/grades with data-driven analysis.

Culture


Tip

We're obsessed with making this the best job you've ever had. Culture is the way we do that.

Take Pride in Ownership

Care intensely about company success. Together, we own Questt and work to achieve results that benefit everyone, not just specific teams or individuals. We should own our contributions in the same way. The success of Questt depends on the ownership of every member of the team.

It is always, User first!

Our users are at the heart of what we do. We always start by asking: whose problem are we solving? Is it significant? Are we making users' lives better? If a solution doesn’t work for people it doesn’t work for us. Strive for an experience that users rave about.

Experiment to Win or Learn!

Questt is all about growing and learning from experimentation. We learn from our successes, our epic failures, and each other. The assumption is: there’s always a better way. The only way to succeed is via constant experimentation. Fix what’s broken and make what works even better.

Share & Succeed together

Achieve collective impact by being generous with your time, care, and expertise. We believe in sharing honest feedback, delivered with respect, to build trust and support growth. We know that all feedback is given in a genuine effort to help us improve.
