Company Overview

Fast. Flat. Flexible. That’s how we work at EF.  We’re a small, flexible, privately-owned and family-run culture focused on building innovative experiential learning ideas to disrupt and evolve the traditional education model.  While EF has grown to have a global presence, we continue to be rooted in a “stay small while growing big” mantra embracing the entrepreneurial spirit and taking ownership of our ideas. Along with our entrepreneurial vibe, we’re also collaborative, open-minded, quirky, and fun.  And we like to solve problems over a beer at the end of the day at our onsite bar Lingo!

Technology fuels the core of what we do, and our integrated team of talented developers and creatives is growing fast.  Come help us build technology that enhances the way people learn and experience the world!

It's a big university town so there are always concerts and cultural events. There are also people from all over the world so you can hear all kinds of languages. It's large enough to be exciting, but small enough that we have a real sense of community.

Executive Vice President

I was used to a fast-paced and informal environment in previous companies, but I think what sets EF apart is the physical office space – light, open, minimal, elegant, fun and happy. It sold me the first time I walked into the Boston office.

EVP, Recruitment and Employee Development

I love the fact that there are so many universities in Boston, a city of culture and intelligence. There are so many meet ups you can join, to meet new people.

Our company culture is one of our most important assets. When we were founded 50 years ago, we were small and flexible.  We didn’t have any patents or special sauce—we just had to rely on our smarts, drive and creativity to succeed.

This “EFness”—so difficult to describe—is our culture and our secret weapon.  As we grow, we focus on remaining small.  Small companies are smart.  Small companies are agile.  And small companies are fun to work at.  Long live smallness!

No matter where on the globe you find one of our offices or schools, you’ll meet staff and educators who are passionate, innovative, entrepreneurial and intrepid. Our offices and schools are a reflection of our culture: they are light, open, minimal, elegant, fun and happy.  They’re designed to facilitate collaboration, creativity, teamwork, and fun.
