LinkedIn’s vision is to create a skills-first approach to hiring and learning

LinkedIn announced that it acquired EduBrite, a Fremont, California-based SaaS learning platform focused on creating, hosting and deploying professional certificates.

Several members of the EduBrite team, including CEO Ajay Upadhyaya and co-founder Manish Gupta, will join LinkedIn when the transaction closes.

According to LinkedIn, the acquisition will enable it to integrate EduBrite’s certification assessment engine into its learning platform, making it simpler for the company to test and verify the skills people claim to possess.

The deal aims to help LinkedIn further deliver on its vision to create a skills-first approach to hiring and learning.

EduBrite was founded in 2009.
