Make a Difference
Turnitin is the leader in all of the markets it serves. We are a profitable, growing, pre-IPO company

Not surprisingly for a company focused on education, our employees are well educated and passionate about improving student learning through technology.
Solve Hard Problems
Before they became buzzwords, we've been working on solving tough technology challenges around Big Data, distributed databases and storage nodes, real-time response to millions of queries, search and link analysis algorithms.

At Turnitin, you'll have a chance to work on applications that are used by millions of people around the world each day. We serve over 10,000 customers in 19 languages across 135 countries. If you want to make a difference, Turnitin is the place to be.
Turnitin provides big company benefits in a small company environment.
I have been working at Turnitin full-time
The big pros for me of working at Turnitin are the meaningful work we do and the great work/life balance.
Life is already hard for teachers. At Turnitin we get to make their life significantly easier with grading tools and originality checking, which saves teachers tons of time, so they can do their best at what they do.
Further, Turnitin is not a "burn the midnight oil" kind of place. We believe in good hard work, but do so within normal 40-hour weeks. This balance has been quite good for the many years I've been here.
No company is perfect. At Turnitin we do have to deal with the same imperfections as other companies that have been around for while, like brittle legacy systems and maybe too many product directions at once. But on the whole it's good.
Advice to Management
Sometimes I think folks forget that our main product is for checking plagiarism; it's the reason why so many customers use us and we do it better than anyone out there. My advice to management is to ensure proper resources are spent refining and improving on this core competency.
I applied online. I interviewed at Turnitin (Oakland, CA) in January 2017.
Applied through Linkedin got a call the following week. The lady on the phone was super courteous and easy to talk with. In-person interview seemed like they were caught off guard or they forgot about the interview. But they were still polite and attentive.
