What We Do

One of the fastest growing tech companies in K-12 education, Newsela was founded on the principle that while every child learns differently, they all deserve a rich learning experience that ignites a love of learning. We built our platform based on learning science research to deliver the most engaging, authentic content to modernize how teaching happens in the classroom. Along with interactive assessments and tools, we provide teachers with digital content at five reading levels -- from +100 of the best sources -- that is relevant to the diverse backgrounds and interests of their students. Since we started in 2013, we’ve become an essential solution for 90% of U.S. K-12 schools and serve +25 million users.

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.”
