Education in our hearts, with technology smarts
We're a passionate team of dreamers, thinkers, designers and doers who work hard to build education solutions that positively impact student success.
Why We Do What We Do
We’re here to create tools to promote educator and student success. At the heart of Illuminate are educators just like you: we’re a team of former school administrators, teachers, district technologists, instructional coaches, special education instructors and curriculum directors. But we’ve also got technology smarts with rockin’ designers and engineers to build products to make your lives easier.
Education is undergoing a transformation with changing standards, a boom in assessments, and the need to track performance at all levels. We understand these challenges and passionately work to address them, so that you can continuously improve operations and teach effectively, today and tomorrow.
What drives our innovation? You. You’re front and center with daily opportunities to impact children’s lives for the better. With our educator hats on, we keep a pulse on what’s working and what’s not and figure out how we can help. Together, we can change the world of education through technology.
What We Believe In
We believe two, three or even more heads are better than one. Working well together internally and with educators and other technology companies ensures positive outcomes.
We believe things should be easy to use, because who needs more complexity in their lives? Our talented team works tirelessly to make sure our system is intuitive and makes sense.
It’s frustrating when things go wrong and no one is there to help. Fear not: our support team is (really) fast and knowledgeable. We’ll make sure you get the help you need as quickly as possible.
We encourage out-of-the-box thinking and a whatever-it-takes mentality from any Illuminator. We value innovative solutions to personal, professional and organizational challenges.
We put customers, our people, company and team first, above any individual.
Our culture is important. We’re serious about our work, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We like to work with kind, thoughtful, passionate people who have positive attitudes. We also value trust, grit, integrity, humor, loyalty, acceptance, fun, and a large dose of humility.
