We define culture as the shared values we have that guide our work and inform how we collaborate with others both inside and outside of our company. As an organization geared towards making education accessible to everyone world-wide, our core values guide teammates to be lifelong learners, to empower others, keep a global perspective, practice empathy, and optimize for impact. It's how we figure out the character traits we want to identify in new hires, rather than relying on a feeling of "culture fit." We trust our employees and encourage them to innovate on a daily basis. We believe that good culture is motivational and draws out the best in people.
