WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Our mission-driven culture is one of the top factors that makes it a Best Place to Work. Team members are motivated by our mission to make education free, fun and accessible to everyone in the world. We have a very close-knit and collaborative culture. We have a lot of fun together in and outside of work. We organize outings to restaurants around the city, have Pittsburgh exploration days, and each weekday the team takes time to eat lunch together. We are also committed to celebrating key milestones and recognizing team members for exceptional work that goes above and beyond.
