Welcome to Odigia.
We’re a team of artists, educators, design gurus, and entrepreneurs… creators and innovators who believe that radically
transforming education is a mission worth embarking upon. Seated in the heart of the ‘City of Arts and Innovation,’ we’re
at the crossroads of creativity and technology. We’ve seen firsthand how modernization has positively impacted our
community, and we’re dedicated to bringing that same change to teachers and learners everywhere. We dream big, play
hard, and are united in our goal of making education more accessible for all.
Founder | CEO
Josh brings over 18 years of experience leading technology design and development teams for small, medium & large organizations. A “recovering IT professional”, Josh spent over 4 years working in Boston’s higher-ed IT space, where his passion for education technology helped identify opportunities to improve it with user-centric design principles. When he’s not manning the helm, you can usually find him outdoors trailblazing in his Jeep, hanging from a cliff, or hiking with his family and the office’s best friend and security dog, Kona.
Armed with a Masters Degree in Computer Graphics & Multimedia, Nadja has been focused on merging user-centered experience design and integration of cutting-edge technology for multi-national Fortune 100 companies for the past 23 years. Her dedication to creating the absolute best user experience is only equaled by her drive to see education transformed by technology that is designed with the teacher and learner in mind. Odigia is truly a passion project for her, and under her leadership the platform is one that is both intuitive and powerful. When she’s not designing amazing interfaces, she’s usually chasing her toddler from one room to the next.
