Instructure—Still One of the Best Places to Work

What makes a great workplace? If you said supersized water coolers, multicolored paper clips, or extra sharp pencils, you may want to consider a career change. But if you said supersized perks, multicolored walls, and extra sharp people, you’re talking about the everyday awesome at Instructure.

For the third year in a row, Instructure was named one of the best companies to work for in 2015 by Utah Business Magazine—and it had nothing to do with our fleet of finely ground pencils. (Wait, we have pencils here? Of course we do.)

The fact is, our employees love what we do: making software that makes people smarter. They love how we do it: by emphasizing transparency, simplicity, and a truly awesome customer experience. And they don’t seem to mind our long list of benefits, perks, and quirks either.

Beyond things like fully paid medical and dental, flexible work schedules, tuition reimbursement, and generous time off, Instructure people enjoy catered lunches, fully-stocked kitchens, pingpong tournaments, and a pretty sweet view from our Salt Lake office.

Our HQ is in Utah, but we’ve also opened offices in Chicago, Hong Kong, London, and Sydney. Our headcount has grown to more than 700, but our Glassdoor scores prove we’re still in tune with individual employees. In December 2015, we scored 4.7 out of 5, pushing us up to #4 on Glassdoor’s 2016 list of best small and medium companies to work for in the U.S.

Ready to find out for yourself why 96 percent of employees who provided reviews on Glassdoor said they’d recommend Instructure to their friends as a great place to work? Or why our CEO loves playing with fire? Inquire within.
