Mission: “To accelerate learning for all children and adults of all ability levels and ethnic and social backgrounds, worldwide.”
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Renaissance® today announced an exclusive strategic partnership. This collaboration will integrate Renaissance Flow 360® data, assessment insights, practice and lesson planning tools with HMH’s core curriculum programs. The integration will enable educators to drive student growth with greater efficiency and accuracy.
Renaissance was created in the basement of Judi and Terry Paul’s central Wisconsin home in 1986. Then and now, we believe that more than anything, teachers shape student outcomes. Like teachers, we are problem solvers in the service of learning. For us, innovation is rooted in purpose: provide relevant, responsive solutions for educators and their students.
“Our primary purpose is to accelerate learning for all children and adults of all ability levels and ethnic and social backgrounds, worldwide.”
We believe everyone can be a successful learner, and it is our conviction that empowering teachers is integral to school success. We are a company founded by parents, upheld by educators, and enriched by scientists who all know that learning is a growth process: a continual journey from year to year and for a lifetime. Every student should have the chance to reach his or her full potential.
We light their path toward growth.

Advice to Management
My experience with leadership has been one of complete respect, and quite frankly awe, for the members we have on our leadership team and the knowledge that we have as a collective team. Continue with being mission-driven-having our pulse on the customer at all time to ensure that we are meeting their needs.
I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Renaissance Learning (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2015.
Applied at U of M job fair. I was contacted a month later for an on-site interview. Interview consisted of a hard skills testing session with 3 engineers. We discussed how to implement an AI to play battleship. Wrote a lot of pseudo code, was mostly centered on problem solving skills.
Second interview was with the competency manager. Mostly talked about personal attitude towards coding and work in general. The goal seemed to be to see if I would be a fit for the sort of office culture they were trying to cultivate.
