Imagine the possibilities if all kids learn

Keeping our founders’ dream alive

If you're interested in supporting educators who are working to help every student maximize his or her learning potential, join NWEA. We offer competitive compensation, an excellent benefits package, and a culture inspired by learning and personal growth.

You’ll find our location in Portland's Old Town/Chinatown puts us close to all major public transportation hubs (hello, commuting choices!). We’re steps away from the beautiful Lan Su Chinese Garden, adjacent to the Pearl District, and a short walk or MAX light rail ride from downtown’s restaurants, museums, theaters, and landmarks.

Partnering in all we do

Diverse talents; strong results

NWEA has nearly 40 years of experience helping educators accelerate student learning through computer-based assessment suites, professional development offerings, and research services.

From Professional Development to Software Engineering, we employ a diverse group of technical and academic-focused professionals dedicated to improving the depth of learning in our nation's school systems and across the globe.

A culture of respect

Growing together towards a common goal

Ask any employee about the last few years and they’ll tell you about our rapid growth. The result is a vibrant mix of new and long-term employees who all share our mission of partnering to help kids learn.

We’re pretty proud that our collective focus on continuous improvement, accountability, and teamwork influences how we create and support our NWEA research-based technology products and professional development services.

With over 700 employees and a focus on innovative technology designed to help all kids learn, NWEA works to cultivate a respectful and dynamic culture that supports work-life balance.
