Skillshare’s goal is to provide affordable, accessible education to the entire world. The company’s constantly growing platform offers online classes in creative fields, like digital photography and 3D animation, as well as business-minded courses in areas like SEO and branding. Skillshare’s products foster a learning community between students and teachers where the exchange of knowledge is both fluid and fun.
And since Skillshare is all about learning, employees also have full access to subscription services, constantly taking—and teaching—new classes.
“We believe that everyone is creative—and learning is a way to unlock that creativity,” says Megan Burt, Community Manager at Skillshare.
Things move quickly at Skillshare, encouraging a collaborative and flexible environment. The company also has a strong culture of trust that gives employees the confidence and ability to make important decisions, and managers ensure that individual goals line up with company goals by working with new hires on one, three, and 12-month goals.
But as hard as the team works, they’re provided plenty of opportunities to let loose. The office sports a large, airy rooftop patio, and employees blow off steam by shooting hoops, playing cornhole, or enjoying the company’s weekly happy hours.
“We are legitimately educating millions of people across the world with one of the most accessible products,” says Elliott Curtis, Partnerships Manager. “We are very proud of what we do. In any conversation, it’s going to be rare that someone has a cooler job than me.”
