They are designer, business analyst, community manager, author, content integrator, graphic designer, translator, accountant, and they contribute to improving the education of thousands of students.
March 8th is a day that celebrates women, or more specifically, women’s rights. Although women are still under-represented in companies that specialize in technology and innovation – and there is more work to be done to increase their number -, they are represented well.
We are taking advantage of this day to introduce you to the women behind Netmath. Whether they are optimizing the functions of our app, perfecting its content, design, or interface, or facilitating communications with our platform’s users, they all contribute to the education of thousands of students through their work. Get to know them!
Emilie is a UI designer
Émilie just recently joined Scolab to strengthen the Design team. Through her work, she ensures that Buzzmath’s interface is consistent, fun, and easy to use for the thousands of students and teachers who use it everyday.
Isabelle is a business analyst
Isabelle joined Scolab in 2013. She started as a customer service representative and now she is a business analyst. As part of the Product team, she contributes to improving Buzzmath. She analyzes, plans, and prioritizes the next functions to be developed.

Then, with the team, she makes any changes necessary to improve the experience of users on the platform.
Jany is a graphist designer
Jany plays a big role in the way Buzzmath’s visual identity appears in our communication tools; this goes hand in hand with the work she does in illustration. She is also involved in creating websites and visuals for the Global Math Week, giving substance to the identity of this event.
We also collaborate regularly with:
- Aurie, who translates our Canadian version’s blog posts and activities from French to English.
