IXL Learning was founded in 1998 to advance education through Web-based technologies. We create transformative products with an impact that makes them instant classroom essentials.

​​​​​Our Products​​​​​


Practice makes perfect, and IXL makes math practice fun! IXL allows teachers and parents to monitor the progress of their students and motivate them through interactive games and practice questions. Widely recognized as the Web's most comprehensive math site, IXL offers a dynamic and enjoyable environment for children to practice math. Students who use IXL are succeeding like never before.

​​Quia Web

Quia Web provides educators with learning tools to create, customize, and share their curriculum online. Quia Web pioneered and brought the "create-your-own" concept to educators around the world—giving them the freedom to go beyond publisher-provided materials and create their own interactive, online experiences for their students.

​​Quia Books

Quia Books are Web-based versions of workbooks and textbooks, and are produced in partnership with the world's leading publishers. Built on our award-winning technology platform, Quia books engage students and make the learning process more satisfying through interactive exercises replete with vibrant color, sound, and images. Educators reap the timesaving benefits of computer-based grading and tracking and can fully customize Quia books based on individual course materials.

IXL Learning is an educational technology company like no other. We develop dramatically innovative, first-of-their-kind products.

IXL Learning is about more than just math. Our varied products have been essential resources for educators and learners for years. Quia Web is the original "create-your-own" website for teachers, offering the ability to create online games, activities, and tests in any academic subject. Quia Books brings languages like Spanish, Chinese, and Arabic to life for millions of students as the leading online platform for world-languages courses.

    I worked at IXL Learning as an intern (less than an year)


    Solid team of smart hardworking people. Schedule was pretty much self-dictated, so long as you got stuff done. Strong sense of community within the company, with lots of group events like intramural soccer and softball.


    IXL doesn't really have any strong cons. Educational technology isn't as sexy on a resume as other more traditional tech fields, so it's a minor con if you care about that kind of stuff.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IXL Learning.

    Interview Details

    Received an email within a week of posting my resume requesting a 30 minute phone interview The phone interview was straight forward with a knowledgeable, friendly person. They followed up by giving me a task to complete within a week and then I had another phone interview. I was then asked to come in for an on-site interview, which was 2.5 hours in a small room with 3 different people -- exhausting. The last interviewer was not very friendly, asked me a lot of the same questions the previous interviewers had, and seemed disinterested in talking with me. Not sure what was going on there because the other two people were great.
    After 3 interviews and a task to complete, I was a little annoyed that I was told I wasn't a match -- does it really take that long to figure out?
