An Insider's view of edX

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Always fun and collaborative. I've never worked at a place where so many co-workers greeted me by name after just my first day.

Jim

Sales Development Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

My work focuses on enabling course teams at partner institutions to create high-quality learning experiences on edX.org. Right now couldn't be a more critical time for this work as we ramp up the amount of Master's degrees we are offering this Fall. I work with faculty, instructional designers, media producers, and project managers.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Working at edX has given me invaluable experience that has allowed me to explore and develop my career. I’ve been able to take on challenges and learning opportunities that have helped me discover the work I’m most passionate about. In my time at edX I’ve grown into a new role and continue to learn more about my work and myself.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At edX, getting your work done is very important, but the company also understands that your life and well being outside of work is directly correlated to productivity during work hours. This is clearly communicated across all levels and departments. There is also lots of company wide fun activities that help us get to know our coworkers outside.
