Why work at Eduphoria? Here’s what our Employees are saying…
“[It’s an] exciting opportunity to make a difference in an unconventional tech space. In the front-end, we are using cutting-edge tools and process to deliver a great user and developer experience.” -- Victor, Staff Engineer
“If you're willing to learn, everyone is always openly willing to give you access to knowledge. Whether it be resources, something that they have learned from their experiences in various companies/positions, or assisting you in finding the information that you seek. This allows me to grow my skill set to not only better serve myself professionally, but to better serve my teammates that require something from ME to do their job. I love that all it takes is asking a question, and you can learn so much here. ” -- Ismael, QA Engineer
“Two things I love about working at Eduphoria:
Our mission - We've always cared most about empowering teachers and affecting students' success
Our culture - I consider the people I work with my friends, not just coworkers. People come on board and stay. We find a balance between flexibility and getting stuff done.”-- Jeremy, Sr Engineer
“My 2 favorite things about working here have been the ability to learn/grow/experiment (and the support to do that) and the people here. And I do really love what we do, too. It's rewarding being a part of something that can positively affect so many educators and students. It's cool that I'll randomly meet teachers or educators in my personal life and they'll have good things to say about our software and our people.” -- Kevin, Software Engineer
“It really is like a family here.. You can talk to everybody at all levels, and they are open and very caring. Everybody is willing to share and contribute, and if any of us go through personal issues, everybody has been supportive. Work/Life balance here is second to none. We also listen to what our customer needs are, and do our best to make it happen.” -- John, Sr Engineer
