At Newsela, the company culture is largely collaborative, with a hands-off approach when it comes to the organization's management styles. The ideal job candidate possesses a passion for education, fits comfortably in a team environment, and has the confidence to voice individual ideas and opinions.
Many Newsela employees enjoy spending time together outside the office. Recently, the Mountain View Team attended a street art graffiti class, touring prominent pieces around the city and collaborating to create their own art. Once back at work, they used their newly acquired skills to adorn their own office walls. In New York, the team has organized outings, from Off-Off-Broadway shows and film screenings to fitness classes and shuffleboard.
