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 employees enjoy spending time together outside the office. All teams are encouraged to visit schools together and observe Newsela being used in the classroom. Other events outside the office include organized outings, like Off-Off-Broadway shows, hockey games, film screenings, fitness classes, shuffleboard, and an annual retreat.
