Pluralsight Company Overview

We are the technology skills platform. We are a fast-growing SaaS company for businesses and learners. We have expert authors who create on-demand course content for us on the most in-demand technologies like cloud, data, security and infrastructure. (To name just a few!) 

We have skill assessments, content recommendations and analytics that help individuals and teams measure their skills, see where they can improve and reach their goals faster. 

We don’t let fear, egos or drama distract us from our mission. We’re adults, and we treat each other that way. We have the autonomy to do our jobs, transparency to eliminate office politics and trust each other to do the right thing. We thrive in an environment with creativity around every corner, challenges that keep us on our toes, and peers who inspire us to be the best we can be. We bring different viewpoints, backgrounds, and experiences, and united by our mission, we are one.

Thanks to our acquisition of Boston-based skills assessment company Smarterer in 2014, we’ve been able to expand our office footprint into the east coast. Our new office sits in Boston’s financial district with panoramic views of the harbour and city. We’re hiring 100+ team members to create a tech hub for our data and machine learning initiatives. With next-level collaboration and a strong culture of learning, we’re known for solving problems and delivering great products.

Ellen Thompson Pluralsight
Ellen Thompson
Special Projects Leader

My 2.3 years of being a part of Pluralsight has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me both personally and professionally. I've been able to work with THE brightest and kindest people, all of whom are united together to change the world for the better. Pair this with the incredible benefits packages, extraordinary leadership team, and steady astronomical success? If you had asked me if it was possible to find a company like this ~2 years ago, I would've said no.

Shayna Cummings
Software Engineer

Shayna is passionate about advancing educational opportunities for everyone. She serves as a Director for Women Who Code in Boston, a teaching assistant for Girl Develop It and an instructor at General Assembly.

“Greater access to technical education is not only essential for empowering learners, but integral to helping our industry grow and bring in the diversity needed for businesses to evolve. Women and people from underrepresented backgrounds in tech need to be supported and empowered to grow in their roles.

Tech is changing (and has already changed) everything about our lives, and the more people involved in the creation and decision making, the better."

Isaac
Senior Content Technologist

Isaac is an author, speaker, technologist and STEM education advocate, and currently leading the Pluralsight Skills Strategy team. He is active in STEM/STEAM initiatives, and is focused on improving lives through education.

"Pluralsight’s mission is my mission. I had an experience where I realized I wanted to do something about STEM education. Not just worry about it, not complain
that, ‘someone ought to do something,’ but to actually find a career path that will allow me to make a difference. I found Pluralsight, and the rest is history.

Doing things for myself makes me happy; doing things for others makes me joyful."

Maureen Botoman
Engineering Manager

A self-taught programmer, Maureen is a strong advocate for junior devs. She was pivotal in starting Pluralsight’s summer internship program, now in its second year, and is a teaching assistant for the organization Girl Develop It.

“The commitment to being a steward of our community, both in Utah and globally, is one of my favorite things about Pluralsight. We are all so fortunate to have the opportunities that we have, and as a company, we need to come together to help other people receive the same opportunities. We empower people from all walks of life to obtain the tools and skills needed to change the world. Creating pathways for success for people to skill up and find meaningful work, whether or not they grew up with financial means, is one of the most rewarding things I have ever worked on.”

Curtin
Lead Analytics Engineer - Experienc

Curtis is a data visualization expert and Tableau Ambassador, and holds the title of 2016 Tableau Iron Viz champion.

“It’s hard for me to envision a future where my children don’t have the fundamental need for being well-versed in technology. Pluralsight is working on making that a reality in our schools. Our commitment to uplifting the lives of youth is one of the biggest reasons I came to work here.

My favorite opportunity that has stemmed from my Tableau Ambassador status is being able to teach data visualization in the MSIS program at the University of Utah. It’s really cool to be able to promote online technology education by day, and contribute in the classroom environment by night!”

Saswati Samantaray
Data Science Analyst

At the age of 25, Saswati moved from India to Utah to pursue a master’s degree in information systems.

“Coming from a culturally diverse and vibrant country like India, I have witnessed people who have access to the highest level of education, and also people with strong potential who have no access. Working for Pluralsight gives me immense pleasure because of the hope that we will be able to make a positive impact and elevate the lives of bright young people.

At Pluralsight we are a community of lifelong learners—we adapt to change and move forward. There is no greater privilege than doing the work that you actually love, and contributing to build a brighter future for society.”

In modern data science and machine learning, it’s remarkably easy to reach a point where our typical Python tools – packages like numpy, pandas, or scikit-learn – don’t really scale suitably with our data in terms of processing time or memory usage. This is a natural point to move to a distributed computing tool (classically, something like Apache Spark) but this can mean retooling our workflow for an entirely new system, navigating between our familiar Python ecosystem a...

Pluralsight’s Security Bounty Program About a year after I joined Pluralsight, we were ramping up to get ready for our ISO 27000 certification. Everyone in the Security and Privacy organization was doing their part to get ready for it. Part of that included building out a company security awareness program. Most of these consist of a mandatory video training that you can’t skip through, a quiz, and a document from HR saying you viewed it and agree to the terms....

Guilds at Pluralsight At pluralsight we encourage people to form guilds. What is a guild you may ask? Guilds are self-organizing groups of people that share common interests. Although guilds at Pluralsight do not need to be technical in nature, this article will speak more to the ones that are. Benefits of Technical Guilds Guilds can provide A sense of community.

As a newcomer to functional programming, I thought mutability was prohibited. Although I figured out how to use immutability in most situations, I found there were obvious cases where it doesn’t work such as modeling and updating in-memory state (e.g. in-memory caches and counters). I was wrong to think that functional programming mandated using only immutable values. Functional programming requires referential transparency, but as long as that holds, mutability is fine....
