Why Join Us?
We believe education is a key driver of change and upward mobility, so we want to make sure it can be as accessible as possible. See how we’ve evolved, and also know we aren’t stopping here. #Ambitious
We believe every person counts and every student deserves the best. That’s why we eliminated the back row. Instead, everyone gets a seat in the front row and becomes one step closer to their brightest possible future. We’ve built 2U up to what it is today with this core philosophy of No Back Row, so it’s a little important. Just a little.
We’re a group of fun people all striving towards the same goal within 2U. Our teams collectively produce the culture that we thrive in—one that promotes creativity, passion, and innovation. Our culture is a key aspect to our success, so we’re constantly seeking talent who can bring our eight guiding principles to life.
We have a strict no-asshole policy. Really, our CEO is quite experienced at spotting and weeding them out. There’s no reason to work with an asshole because as our CEO said himself, “Life’s too short to work with jerks.”
