Best Places to Work: 2016 (#42)
I have been working at IXL Learning full-time (Less than a year)
IXL Learning is a technology company in the first place, and has established very good standards for coding conventions, engineering principles, internal tools, etc. You definitely get the chance to grow yourself to become a better engineer.
In addition, you'll have smart and friendly coworkers, good work life balance, great product, and challenging projects to work on. These are what you'll get at IXL, but should never take for granted.
None that I can think of.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work, and bring the best talents!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IXL Learning (San Mateo, CA) in March 2018.
After application was reviewed, I was invited to participate in a 15 min. phone interview. The team was considerate of my scheduling needs and offered to open up a time slot to accommodate a conflict I had.
After the 15 min interview (all very boiler-plate questions) I was asked to submit samples of writing and work product. The team was also very accommodating in allowing many different forms of work product.
I was then asked to schedule a 30 min phone interview with the hiring manager. This was more in depth but still very typical/expected in terms of questions asked.
All personnel I encountered were kind, helpful, and thorough.
Nailed it! IXLers used their building skills to help out Habitat for Humanity of Durham. Read all about it here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ7ds
College applications can be hard. Last weekend IXLers volunteered to help students craft their personal statements! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQHlG
