Why We Work Here

Helene Vincent
Manager of Product Innovation, Language Immersion Tours

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.

Kate Berseth
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.

Angela Xu
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.
