What We're All About

Mission & Values

Our Mission & Values

Our mission is to inspire everyone to learn together. We work toward this goal by focusing on openness, relationships, equality, ownership, and simplicity. These values apply across the board: to our software and services; our coworkers, customers, and partners; and our company culture and work ethic.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that fostering a culture of inclusion and embracing diversity helps us transcend the status quo and create transformational learning experiences for everyone. Our global Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DIB) Council meets regularly to help promote best practices and alignment across the organization. This intersectional group is hyper-focused on increasing Instructure's outreach, improving our recruiting and mentorship programs, and hiring and promoting diverse talent.

Employee Development

We work hard to provide the people who work here with professional learning and career development opportunities—in fact, we dedicate an entire week to it every year: Basecamp Employee Development Week!

Community Engagement

Improving teaching and learning experiences through technology is our M.O., but we also offer student scholarships, educator awards, leadership programs, and TONS of free resources for teachers, students, parents, and other edtech users.

*How* you work is much more important than *where* you work. We offer work-from-home flexibility and flex time off ('cause we're all grown-ups here, and we trust our employees to kick some buns and get stuff done).

Ours is a fun, friendly, and supportive culture, from Motivosity rewards to mentorship opportunities, from our Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging program to our sought-after swag and Slack channels for everything.
