At Pearson, we’re committed to a world that’s always learning and to our talented team who makes it all possible. From bringing lectures vividly to life to turning textbooks into laptop lessons, we are always re-examining the way people learn best, whether it’s one child in our own backyard or an education community across the globe. We are bold thinkers and standout innovators who motivate each other to explore new frontiers in an environment that supports and inspires us to always be better. By pushing the boundaries of technology — and each other to surpass these boundaries — we create seeds of learning that become the catalyst for the world’s innovations, personal and global, large and small.

Our capabilities are based on our deep expertise in how people learn, and we apply them to our three strategic priorities:

Grow market share through the digital transformation of our courseware and assessment businesses by shifting from selling ownership of our content to selling print or digital services. Invest in structural growth opportunities that promote lifelong learning, such as professional certifications and licensure, virtual schools, online program management, and English language learning and assessment. Become a simpler, more efficient, and sustainable company by eliminating duplication, increasing standardization, and improving access to and outcomes for our products.


Why join us?
  • We are building a brand new technology that will form a next-generation learning platform - which will be key to how we connect with those learners and partners. It will help students learn better, learn faster, and have more fun along the way. Over time, this platform will support all our future products, and ensure that the learner experience is more personal and relevant, and can draw on the latest advances in AI and machine learning.

    This in turn will help Pearson to grow its market share through the digital transformation of our courseware & assessment businesses

  • This team will have the feel of a startup, backed by a well established company. Cutting edge agile team.
