Skillsoft – Why Work For Us?


Skillsoft is a performance driven organization, and we take great pride in delivering industry leading products and services that help our customers achieve their business objectives.

Our people are hardworking, talented, innovative and passionate, and we encourage communication through our open door policy. Individual voices seeking change to improve efficiency are encouraged. Our casual and down to earth environment is symbolic of the people at Skillsoft. At our US headquarters, we all have workstations (no private offices), we wear our jeans and encourage team work and camaraderie. Whether someone is in sales, development or finance, we have one common goal at Skillsoft – delivering the best learning experience for our customers.

Skillsoft is a well-adapted company. Over the past 15 years, Skillsoft has been able to successfully evolve based on shifts in technology, the economy, and customer needs. Leadership has a strategic focus, which makes our organization operationally efficient and successful.

If the idea of working hard and being part of an organization that values the efforts and contributions of its employees appeals to you, we would love to hear from you.

At Skillsoft, our Sales Talent shares a passion for winning and a commitment to excellence. When you become a member of our sales team you join an industry leader offering stability and long term career opportunities. Here, hard work is respected and success is rewarded with uncapped earning potential!

Our sales professionals benefit from world-class training and support and thrive in an environment driven by collaboration. We recognize the impact that individual contributions have on our success. We also get that the rules of selling have changed and we know the formula for success. We understand how to achieve insight into our customer’s business and teach them how to better compete in their market. We know how to tailor our messaging to a customer’s particular needs and assert control of the sale. We educate our customers continuously and turn passion, advocacy and alignment into action.

We want you selling - so leadership responds to the needs of employees to make processes more efficient. Regardless of an employee's particular role, all opinions are respected. Because of this, the work environment is adaptive, and there is a willingness to change. The open door policy and ability for employees to voice suggestions and concerns strengthen the organization’s commitment to collaboration. We are proud to enjoy a higher tenure rate than most software organizations.


At Skillsoft, our Engineering team shares a passion for providing customers with innovative solutions for their learning needs. Learning just doesn't happen in the classroom anymore, and our engineering team designs ways to make it accessible to everyone on all sorts of devices and environments.

While individuals on the team must be responsive to immediate customer needs, they must also plan and design for the future with the ever expanding available technology. This type of environment offers an engineer the best mix of challenging problem solving today and the ability to grow their expertise in new areas and technologies.

We know our best engineers don’t necessarily define themselves with programming buzz words, but instead pride themselves on being exceptional problem solvers that will find the right tool for the job, and the right solution for the customer. They also want to make a difference. This is why we give our engineering teams the flexibility to be involved in designing, prototyping, architect design, and defining the tools used to make the whole Skillsoft team a success. This ensures that we have an engineering team that can deliver solutions that matter for the company and our customers.

While the job can be challenging, we foster success with a positive work environment and flexibility, giving our engineers room to advance, learn and grow.

At Skillsoft, we know that the quality and cost of the benefits that we make available to employees is very important. Each year our benefit plans are analyzed and benchmarked to many other plans on a national, regional, state-wide, industry and employee size basis. Skillsoft continuously strives to offer a competitive, comprehensive health and welfare employee benefits package that provides protection for employees and their families, helps them plan and save for the future, and provides time off to spend with family.
