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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Instructure (Salt Lake City, UT).

    The process began with a coding test. It had 4 question and 80 minutes. I got an email in two days that I did well in the test and was called for on-site interview. The on-site interview was taken by 2 managers 45 minutes each and then by the director of QA for 15-20 minutes and finally, wrap up with HR. manager. The questions were mostly white board coding.
