Springboard has a bold vision for transforming education and bridging the skills gap: we’re building a new kind of online school. Education is no longer a one-off, full-time investment; it's a lifelong pursuit which should be tailored to individual goals, needs, and capacity. We empower our students to thrive in this new world order by delivering high-quality education, with a focus on real career outcomes.
Our programs — in cutting-edge subjects like data science, business analytics and UX design — are founded upon best-in-class curricula, rich in project-based pedagogy. In addition, learners receive ongoing mentorship from industry experts, plus outstanding support and career services.
We’re backed by awesome investors (including the founders of LinkedIn and Princeton Review), and we’re growing quickly as a team, a company, and a community. We’ve helped thousands of people already, and we’re hiring so we can achieve our ambitious goal of touching millions of lives!
