What We Value

Put People First

We prioritize the happiness and wellbeing of our people. We carry humility. We are empathetic and respectful. We embrace different perspectives, prioritize an inclusive culture, and recognize our success is correlated to our diversity as a team. We care more about the greater good of the team than our individual selves.

Never Stop Learning

The impact we make on learners, their communities, and society at large is what inspires us to do great work. We believe in lifelong learning, a growth mindset, and intellectual curiosity — for our people, our customers, and our learners. Our intrinsic drive around continuous learning propels our success.

Do the Right Thing

We act with integrity and transparency. We value ethics. We lack hidden agendas, say what we mean, and act with pure intentions. We collaborate in pursuit of the truth. We have no tolerance for egos, entitlement, hierarchical thinking, or me > we. We believe building trust means building a better company.

Focus On the Customer

Our customers are our partners. We work to transform their online learning experience. Their success depends on our ability to deliver outstanding results. We view our customers as colleagues, and we win together. We build solutions they love. We are fans of our customers, and they are fans of ours.

Have a Bias For Action

We make ideas reality. We resist paralysis by analysis. We take calculated risks, and we are thoughtful of long-term impact. We experiment. We hustle as we did when we were a fresh startup. We move quickly, learn fast, and pivot. We are intentional in learning for the future.
