Otta's take on Ethena

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Ethena originally started as a training platform to prevent harassment at work, with its model driven by short, bite-sized “nudges” and flexible 5 minute training sessions rather than time consuming, and often ineffective seminars.

The company was quickly celebrated upon launch for its fresh take on deploying anti-harassment training. Leaning into the micro-learning method has proven popular as it makes training much more gamifiable, and far easier to digest, while it offers much less distraction from the daily workflow.

Ethena’s has won major customers in the form of Netflix, Figma, and Zendesk. Since receiving impressive 2022 funding, the company has expanded its focus to include a wider range of compliance training, from financial compliance to corruption prevention, to diversity & inclusion, all to meet the growing demand for its tight, user-friendly approach.

Total funding - $50.4m

Company benefits

  • We cover 100% of premiums for you and your dependents under all our health plans, including medical, dental, and vision
  • We offer health FSA, HSA, dependent FSA, and commuter benefits to help keep your wallet full
  • We treat our parents equally. Whether you’re a birthing or non-birthing parent, we provide 12 weeks of paid parental leave for all our parents. Eligibility begins after 6 months of employment
  • We provide 401(k) options — both pre-tax and ROTH — so you can save for that gorgeous little cottage out in the middle nowhere. Or, you know. Whatever retirement fantasy you prefer
  • The nice thing about working for a compliance training company is that you get free access to all our course offerings. Pretty sweet perk, if you ask us
  • In addition to our company-provided laptop, monitor, and keyboard, we reimburse up to $500 so that you can set up the most tricked out (okay, the most reasonably comfortable) at-home work station. And hey, if working from home doesn’t ‘work’ for you (see what we did there?), fear not! We also provide access to WeWork offices nationwide
  • In addition to closing shop for all federal holidays and our end of year (week-long — uhuh, you read that right) break, we provide 20 days of paid time off per year. That’s a total of 7 weeks living your best life outside of work!
  • We believe in paying people’s worth. That means pairing competitive salaries with generous equity and being upfront about it. We list salary information on all our job descriptions."

Company values

  • Play to win - We hire people who are good at what they do, and expect them to chase greatness. We compete together, win as a team, and are not satisfied with second place.
  • Do our training proud - We live the values our training teaches. We work with empathy, learn from our mistakes, and prioritize personal and organizational health as we grow. Importantly, we work as hard on our organizations as we do on our product in order to create a space that models the behavior we hope to see in others.
  • Embrace feedback - We embrace every part of feedback; giving, receiving, and soliciting. We give it directly, but with kindness and tact. We receive it eagerly, but without forgoing curiosity and contextualization. We solicit constantly and with examples of vulnerability. Because we're at our best when we're all trying to be better.
  • Humor is human - We spend a third of our days at work, it shouldn't be miserable. Tell a joke in a meeting, send that funny gif. Humor brings more than levity. It creates space for vulnerability, introspection, and friendship.
