Who we are

We are educators, parents, siblings, and friends who aren’t satisfied with the quality of the content our students are exposed to. We know they deserve better, and are committed to bringing authentic, engaging, diverse and accessible content to all learners.

Do work that matters

Inspire a generation of learners. Support and empower teachers. Shape the future of K-12 education.

Our Mission

Everything we do is in support of one single, ambitious goal: Meaningful classroom learning for every student.

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.”

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.”
