When you’re knee-deep in trying to change the way the world does something, your principles have to be both unwavering and rock solid. Everything we do, and everything we believe in, aligns with helping people and businesses progress. This starts with our own people. It’s why we’re adamant about things like learning, work/life balance, equality, empathy, and dedication. And why we have no problem going all in. We'll bet the farm in order to accomplish the mission, even if it means we end up farm-less. Our principles drive how we interact with the world, with each other as Degreed employees, and how we drive the world forward.  


WHAT WE BELIEVE:

Work + Progress

BUILD YOUR SKILLS WHILE YOU BUILD DEGREED.

We strive to learn something new each day, and we support learning by giving employees $1,200 per year to pursue their passions and interests.

Work + Life
WORK/LIFE BALANCE ISN’T AN IDEA, IT’S A PROMISE.

We believe in complete life balance. Degreed facilitates your personal commitments, and believe your personal life should invigorate your work.

Work + Diversity
THE MORE DIVERSE OUR TEAM, THE BETTER OUR IDEAS.

Our success depends on diversity, not in uniformity. There’s strength in numbers, but it’s our differences that make us powerful.

A career at Degreed is so much more than a job. It’s an opportunity to innovate, learn, and grow — as an employee, as a learner, and as an individual. We never have and never will be for the status quo. We’re for the doers, the innovators, and those who don’t fear change. We thirst for knowledge and strive to always get better. We celebrate diversity, uniting through our differences. And above all, we strive for balance in all things. It’s all centered around a culture beholden these ideas, because changing the world starts from within.  

If you think you have what it takes, apply for one of our open positions.


Okay, we’ll be honest. The benefits at Degreed are pretty sweet. From the 100% flexible schedule, to the unlimited time off, to the Flex Ed account — trust us, you’re going to want to know what this is — we’ve got it made. We understand that to take care of what we want to accomplish, we have to take care of our people. That’s why we’re so dedicated to cultivating a culture that makes good on it. All of it.

    I have been working at Degreed full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a newer employee, I've been incredibly impressed by the commitment this company has to its new-hires. The on-boarding is very, very thorough and the welcome has been overwhelming. The genuine passion this company has for its mission and for doing everything possible to support its customers is absolutely real and I couldn't be more excited to team up with the dedicated individuals on this team and elicit positive change!

    Sales Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Degreed (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I did one face to face interview and two interviews over the phone with employees in San Francisco. I had to reschedule one of the interviews, but they were very accommodating. They asked a lot about my past experience and allowed me to understand more about the future direction of the business.
