Pros: Smartly is a mission-driven organization, intent on transforming online education so that it's more accessible, affordable, and effective and they really deliver on that promise! The co-founders are motivated and strategic, dedicated to building a strong brand in the ed-tech arena. They're very organized and driven. Management is always open to suggestions and encourage the team to be creative and have fun developing lessons. As a Content Developer, I've found the content team to be very collaborative. The writing/editing process is well-organized and there's a lot of back-and-forth to ensure we're producing fun, engaging, and accurate content. I enjoy working with colleagues who are all very talented and have a wide range of backgrounds. Smartly offers good healthcare and vacation benefits, and competitive salaries. Employees also have the opportunity to participate in the online MBA!
Cons: Smartly is a startup and it's still growing, which is exciting, but also means that employees need to be flexible and able to roll with the punches. If you're looking for a dynamic workplace at a growing company, then this may be a good fit for you!
