After witnessing first-hand the struggles instructors and students were facing with virtual learning at the start of COVID, I was inspired to create Class with the mission of changing the way the world learns. One of my top priorities from day one has always been to create and maintain a positive workplace environment. 

Today, I’m excited to share that Class has been named among the Best Places to Work in DC by Comparably.

This is an award that is based solely on reviews from current employees over the last year. The past couple years haven’t been easy for anyone, so I’m thrilled to learn that the team at Class feels supported and has been able to grow and thrive. Company culture is a huge determinant of success, which is why this accolade means so much to me. 

This isn’t our first time being recognized for the work we’re doing at Class. We were also named to DC Inno’s 2021 Startups to Watch list, which honors companies based in the D.C. area that are poised for growth and success. We also recently achieved SOC2 compliance, and won awards from IMS Global, GSV, Tech Edvocate, EdTech Breakthrough, and Brandon Hall.

We’re proud to offer careers that provide purpose with an award-winning culture. Learn more and apply to a role today at

Stay tuned – we’ll be in touch again soon with more exciting news!
