VIPKid Among Top 10 in Best Places to Work 2020

By VIPKid  |  December 13, 2019

Wow! We are thrilled to be recognized as one of Glassdoor’s Top 10 Best Places to Work in both the U.S. and Canada for 2020! Virtually high-five, hug a dino and pat yourself on the back because this was truly a group effort.

Jumping 58 positions up the list in just a year and being recognized as #9 among hundreds of thousands of companies in the U.S. is a feat we will not take lightly. To sweeten the pot, we’ve been recognized as #3 in Canada for the first time! We’re grinning from ear to ear and we have our teachers to thank for this huge milestone, but we’ll let them tell you about it – via their Glassdoor reviews of course. 

“Teaching on VIPKID’s platform is very fun and fulfilling. The student’s consistently remind me why I chose teaching as a profession. The scheduling flexibility permits me to be a full-time father of two amazing children. Furthermore, I am not a tech-savvy person but the platform is so user-friendly I believe I’ve been able to thrive.”

“Easy to use online platform, can make own hours, teach in the comfort of your home.”

“Set your own hours, have regular students build relationships, curriculum provided, no lesson plans, just teach and write parent feedback!”

“VIPKid is an incredible platform to teach English to children of all ages. The company has a great vision with its goal to reach all children, even in rural communities.”

“I love working for VIPKid. The leadership is truly passionate and dedicated to the mission and goals of the company. Everyone is very collaborative, supportive and encouraging. It is a really fun place to work!”

“I love the flexibility the job gives me. They offer many incentives that I can choose to participate in. I also love that the company is always improving and they listen to suggestions.”

Our Founder and CEO, Cindy Mi reflected on this accolade as well. “We are honored to be recognized by Glassdoor as a Best Place to Work, and proud to be a part of the top 10 companies for 2020. This award speaks to the passionate teacher community as we strive to foster a positive and empowering experience for teachers on our platform.”

According to Glassdoor, “This year marks the shift to a culture-first decade in the workplace, and Glassdoor’s Award winners are companies that are prioritizing culture and mission at the heart of everything they do.” This rings true for us at VIPKid

The passion from our tight-knit community inspires us to be better and to continue a culture that inspires others. We are incredibly lucky to have so many teachers stand behind our goal, fueling our mission, “to inspire and empower every child for the future.” 

As we look to close out this year, there are many exciting things to celebrate. From organizing our largest Journey conference to date (650+ teachers), fundraising for a great cause (let’s dance UNICEF), and holding 950+ meetups this year!

Oh, did we mention we hit 100,000 teachers this year too?! 

Again, this could not have been possible without your dedication to teaching and drive to make an impact in education. We’re excited to continue the journey into the next decade and hope you’ll come along for the ride.
