We prepare the world for the careers of tomorrow

Our online programs enable progress and fuel potential with the support of industry experts.

Springboard is on a mission to transform one million lives through education by 2030.

Springboard is an online learning platform that prepares students for the tech industry’s most in-demand careers with comprehensive, mentor-led online programs in software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, UI/UX design, and more.

We act as a support system, coach, and cheerleader for working professionals who are ready to level-up or make a major career shift. Our one-size-fits-one approach combines a bleeding-edge curriculum with expert mentors, career coaches, and student advisors, who provide an individualized and personalized learning experience. We give our students everything they need to fuel their progress, and hold them accountable for their dreams.

Since our founding in 2013, we’ve doubled our team size each year, with offices in Bengaluru and San Francisco. Today, the Springboard community includes tens of thousands of students and alumni, more than a thousand expert mentors, dozens of career coaches, and hundreds of employer partners. Together, we’re building a network that’s bridging the world’s skills gap.

What we believe
Our values are the foundation of our culture, and handy guideposts to the behaviors we want to encourage and reward on the team. We defined these as a team back in 2016, and they’ve helped guide our decision-making ever since.
Our mission comes first
We’re building a world where everyone can access high-quality education. As champions of our mission, we put our students’ success first. Users > Company > Team > Self.
We are always learning
We value curiosity, risk-taking, and continuous learning, both within and beyond the workplace. We strive to become better versions of ourselves.
We are open, honest, and constructive.
We are open to questioning our beliefs. We encourage debate and dissent, regardless of rank or tenure. We assume positive intent. We offer timely and constructive feedback so we can all succeed.
