Reimagining education

Blackboard – Why Work For Us?

We are here to reimagine education.

We're shaping the future of education with big ideas that challenge conventional thinking and advance new models of learning. Every day we're inspiring people to find new ways to learn, connect and drive change in the way education is delivered and experienced. Through technology and services we bring people closer to the knowledge they seek and to ways they can change their own education and the world for the better.

The drive to make a difference and lead the evolution of education is at the core of what makes our solutions so effective. From teachers and administrators to students and parents, we build on everyone’s best to build a better education experience.

undefinedAround the globe, Blackboard solutions are helping to improve every aspect of the education experience. Clients are using our technology to reach more students in immediate, personalized new ways. They are helping their educators become more effective. Keeping everyone informed, involved, collaborating together, and meeting the high expectations of today’s learners. And they’re doing it in a cost-effective way that helps to sustain services and programs, even as outcomes are improved over time—finally, the new generation of education is here.

Making a difference can be hard, but by working together we can achieve real change.

We can help you:

  • Improve individual and institutional performance
  • Make teaching and learning more effective—in the classroom and beyond
  • Take the education experience mobile
  • Reach your community with important information anytime, anywhere
  • Make more informed decisions and improve outcomes
  • Offer a more engaging, interactive, individualized learning experience
  • Make life on and off-campus more convenient and secure
  • Deliver services and experiences that meet the new expectations of learners

Blackboard is helping to build a better education experience. To make the learning model of tomorrow available today. We live this mission every day. But a better education experience comes in many forms, not just in the technology we enable. It is also seen in the environments where learners live and interact. By actively taking part in our local communities, we’re working to broaden our reach and our impact. We’re getting involved. We’re creating new stories of improvement. That’s what the Blackboard Education Corps is all about.

Through our partnership with Greater DC Cares or its global partner Hands On Network, Blackboard employees are getting involved to make their local communities better. Each year, our employees use one day of paid leave to participate in projects that make a difference in communities around the world.

It’s called the Blackboard Education Corps and it’s another way that our employees are making the education experience better.

    Pros

    Company finally seems to be moving into a more stable execution pattern, from product to sales and marketing. All in all, the future looks good.

    Cons

    Priorities can shift dramatically and frequently. The firm still seems to bleed good people. The education technology space is getting very crowded..making it tougher to stand out

    Advice to Management

    Communicate strategies more broadly to the employee base, and then stick to them. The back and forth in the past few years under new management has been necessary, but very tough on the employee base. They will stay if they feel vested and informed

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Blackboard.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of in-depth phone interview with recruiting and then in person with the manager. When advised that they would make a decision quick, it has been over two weeks and with you having to do follow up emails and no information back from the company as to if a decision has been made.
