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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *Management is accessible and listens to employee feedback.
    *Lots of resources (online courses, mentoring, tuition reimbursement) for career development.
    *Stocked kitchen and weekly catered lunches.
    *SLC and PG offices have fun, happy interior design.

    Cons

    At the beginning of the fall and spring terms, all support personnel are required to work 3 hours overtime each week; however, they bring in food two additional times and give prizes to help encourage people through those weeks.
