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.

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.

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.
