What We Do
Magoosh is fixing a broken test prep industry.
Why should students have to put up with exorbitant prices for boring test prep classes and books that might not even work? With Magoosh, they don’t have to. Our mission is simple: create products that give students everywhere access to enjoyable, affordable, and quality test prep. We help millions study at their own pace, on their own time regardless of location, social status, or background. Our team is driven to create the best content and study tools because we’re out to change the test prep experience for all.
Magoosh started in 2009 with four co-founders and a few computers. Today, we’re a growing team of 35 in-office employees, with products that are used all over the world in more than 180 countries. Millions have studied with us, downloaded our apps, and watched our videos. And every day, we work with thousands of students to help them get the scores they need to get into the schools they want.
If you’re a friendly, passionate, lifelong learner who’s looking to make a real difference in students’ lives, we want you to help us change the test prep world.
How We Interview And Hire
At Magoosh, we value communication. To that end, we want you to know what to expect with our hiring process. The entire process can take as little as a 3 weeks depending on how quickly you respond, how quickly your references respond, and our internal schedule. Along the way, we’ll do our best to keep you updated. And you should always feel free to reach out to us if you want to know where you stand in the process or what the hold up is! I’ve outlined our general process below.
Here's a link to a blog post that outlines our hiring process in depth.
Our Core Values
At Magoosh, our culture and values define how we approach our work, interact with students and each other, and much more. Contrary to popular belief, culture isn’t about whether or not you drink Blue Bottle coffee, are good at foosball, or like certain movies. A good set of values is a decision-making framework—values should help team members make decisions between two good options.
In true nerd fashion, we’ve turned our values into inequalities—we are test prep experts after all! The left side represents the Magoosh way, and the right side represents another good way, just not our way. Knowing what you aren’t is as important as knowing what you are.
