Working at Lightspeed

We’ve got 4 offices worldwide, and each office has its own personality, but we’ve got a few things in common...

It’s a fast-paced environment, filled with passionate people, always talking about how we can do better. It’s a casual but focused environment where people can be themselves and bring their best selves to work. Sure, we’ve got all the fun things that other top tech companies have (like cold brew and ping pong) but our fun comes from collaborating together and making an impact.

We’re on a mission to protect and prepare all students.

We do this by empowering IT so they transform digital devices and content into learning tools for students, teachers, and staff.

What we're about

We're making a difference.

What better way to change the world than by protecting students and improving education? This mission drives us. We're partners with our customers (not just vendors) and we listen to them so our software truly makes a difference, saving lives and keep students on track every day.

We're leading the way.

With 28,000 school customers around the globe, we are the market leaders in what we do -- and we're committed to keeping it that way. You'll get to work on cutting-edge tech that's making a real difference. With a blend of proven solutions and innovative new technology, we are always improving our products and services and finding new ways to help our customers.

You'll have a voice.

We don't just listen to our customers; we also listen to our employees. The best answer wins at Lightspeed, and you'll be given many opportunities for your voice and your ideas to be heard. You'll know the executive team by their first names, and you can walk into any office, any time, and have a conversation.

We're growing, so you can too.

With more technology in students' hands, schools need our solutions more than ever -- and we want to help them all. At Lightspeed, you'll have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution from the start, and to grow and learn right along with us. If you bring a growth mindset and a drive to excel, the opportunities are endless.
