Walt, Sales

“It's rare to find a company that is equal parts socially driven and such a promising tech innovator. The balance of the two makes for a great work environment with a lot of upward mobility and fast-paced growth.”

Kirk, Product

“I’ve been given the opportunity to solve more interesting problems during my 2 years at Newsela than I would have been at most other companies. The work is thought-provoking and tackling it with an exceptional development team that I can learn from and respect makes it all the more fulfilling.”

Alex, Engineering

“I love working on an engineering team that has a culture of asking and answering each other's questions. I can really tell that an ethos of learning radiates throughout all of Newsela; that questions are viewed as opportunities to teach and learn.”

Laurence, Field Sales

"Being a Field Sales Rep at Newsela means I get to find new ways to help make a positive impact for students across the country. Whether I’m sitting down at one of the biggest school districts in the nation, or helping a teacher at a small school learn how to best use Newsela's platform in class, I get to embark on a different journey every day."

Steph, Editorial

“Creating Newsela’s content is so fulfilling! What we deliver speaks to students' interests and incorporates identities that have been historically been marginalized. A wide array of students now see themselves and the things they care about reflected in what they're reading, which leads to more engaged learning and builds empathy.”

Stephanie, Data Science

“My team is extremely cross-functional, which means I'm able to explore the full breadth of our product and see how my work is tangibly impacting students and teachers. I love that I have the autonomy to discover new solutions and share my ideas with teams across the company.”
