Mission: To unlock the potential of any teacher to personalize learning for every student.
I have been working at Education Elements full-time (Less than a year)
Education Elements is on a mission, and it feels like I'm an important part of that every single day. The company, both in business practice and culture is true to its promise, and is one of the few I've worked for that practice what it preaches. The variety of people working in an environment where your individualism is valued makes coming to work fun every single day. And seeing the work our clients do with our help sends me home fulfilled. The company preaches transformation and is always in the middle of transforming itself.
This is not a typical small tech company in culture or business. The people come from a variety of backgrounds, and the culture is made of of the collected stories of each of the people. The work is challenging, but leadership also works hard to make sure that people don't get burned out.
This is a small, rapidly growing company, with all the associated challenges. You are expected to rely on your own resourcefulness more than company resources, and expected to create what you need rather than have it handed to you.
There's little process and formality in any aspect of the business or its management. That's showing signs of change, but is has a way to go. The continuous transformation can be unsettling at times
Advice to Management
- Keep transforming. Stay true to how you practice what you preach.
- Work to better integrate people who come from different backgrounds (professionally)
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Education Elements in October 2016.
Very relaxed yet professional phone conversation. I really felt like the interviewer was trying to get to know me rather than just posing generic questions. Was informed during that call that I had made the second stage of the interview.

Sometimes districts themselves get in the way of innovation (we tryto make sure that doesn't happen!) Check out the post by our CEO, Anthony Kim, in Tech Crunch: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIGxA
