We believe in leaders at every level of the organization

People learn with us, grow with us… and stay with us.

I work with some of the most talented and creative people on the planet! As an organization, we face challenges, celebrate success, and run at something HUGE every single day! Our ability to adapt to change to consistently meet the needs of our school and district partners is what makes us special.

Jasmine Wheeler

Sr. Regional Sales Manager

I am consistently impressed with the people I work with and their passion for education and making a true difference in the lives of educators. I’ve had the opportunity to work in both offices and appreciate the bustling energy of the Dania Beach office as well as the quiet concentration of the Brooklyn office.

Andrew Hausman

Customer Success Team Manager

The opportunity to work for an organization that recognizes the power of using Hip-Hop to engage students is one of a kind.

Mervin Jenkins

District Strategy Consultant

There are a lot of reasons to work for a company, but people are the most important. We’re a group of people working together, doing what we love, infusing our values into everything we produce. On any given day I could be in a music session, a video session, or a classroom. That’s special.

Christopher Camp

Director of Video

Nearpod has a really collaborative atmosphere that we all contribute to daily that fuels me. It’s hard work, but it’s fun because you see the work you put in through the growth of the company.

Olivier Rigaud

Regional Manager

Working at Nearpod has the energy and excitement of a startup, with the passion for impacting education. We like to say that we’re “building the plane as we fly it,” and the spirit and enthusiasm with which we do is amazing.

Kelly Yuen

Senior Product Manager

I watched the Flocabulary Point of View video and thought, “I have to work there.” Flocabulary’s amazing hip-hop songs, activities, and the chance to help bring them into classrooms across the country, drew me to the company. I was excited by the opportunity to infuse joy into K-12 education and elevate students’ voices by working on a product that they connect with.
