Instructure – Why Work For Us?

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels. Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles. Yeah, we all have favorite things. At Instructure, these are ours.


CANVAS ISN’T JUST A PRODUCT.

It’s an educational revolution. It’s a powerful new way to–pardon our optimism–change the world. And, yes, there’s an industry-pushing learning management system used (and loved) by millions of passionate students and teachers in there too.

BRIDGE IS THE REBUTTAL TO LOUSY, BORING CORPORATE TRAINING.

It’s the new key to employee engagement—simple, modern, and easy to implement, author, and use. It might even be a little fun (don’t tell HR). Let’s change the way we do corporate learning. Down with the yawn-inspiring, groan-inducing era. Up with the engaging, streamlined, simple era. The Bridge era.

    I have been working at Instructure full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Smart and talented people, some of the best and brightest that I've ever worked with. - Growing fast. Customers, product and employees. This creates a lot of opportunities. - You learn a lot. Management and peers all care about making things better for customers and employees. Almost everyone is willing to teach you about stuff you may not know.

    Cons

    - Fast paced. Con for some but not for others. - There are a lot of things going on and sometimes things get crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Keep communicating everything you can. Keep listening to concerns and empower those on the ground to fix them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Instructure (Salt Lake City, UT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Instructure is touted as one of the top companies in Utah. Going to their building is impressive. Everyone seemed friendly. They were very unresponsive though. Very to get back to you. They may be missing out on great talent because of how slow they are.
