Employee reviews

Perlego's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

The company is supportive of how flexible we work, with a great understanding that we have lives outside of work. Certain roles requires more in-person working but generally it is very flexible.

It's a caring and nurturing environment with a team who really believe in and are committed to the company mission.

You are shown trust from the second that you start working at Perlego and that feeds into the commitment to flexibility. As a working mother, I truly value the flexible stance of the company,

Meet who might be hiring you

Hi, I'm Ashleigh, the VP People and Ops at Perlego. 👋

We're on a mission to make learning accessible to all, so to help us achieve that shared ambition we've built a culture which will give you the flexibility and autonomy you need to thrive, do what you love and have a massive impact on the world of education.

We're proud of our openness, transparency and our culture of care and belonging. We're team players and believe in each other, so always look for those qualities in everyone we hire. On top of that, we wouldn't be true to our mission if we weren't avid learners ourselves, striving to grow and share knowledge with others and our users. We're a growing company and believe in empowering each other and our users, that means taking ownership and always striving to become our best selves.

If you like the sound of that and are interested in joining Perlego, drop us a line and reach out to Ben Davies, our Senior Talent Partner 🙌
