Employee Stories

I'm in my third position here at Blackboard. I've been able to grow as a manager, a project lead, and in the practice of marketing through the opportunity to change roles several times since 2013. The support from leadership to try new things is important to me and has really helped me grow.”

Kylie Johnson, Global Marketing & Communications

I wanted my next role to give me an opportunity to positively impact people's lives. I was already familiar with the Blackboard product through college, and as I learned more about Blackboard and their mission to advance learning around the globe, I knew this is where I wanted to be.”

David Arnold, Technology

From my first day, I was warmly welcomed by the team from around the world, they included me immediately and gave me appropriate training for the functions I was going to develop. Every day I come happily to work and meet my coworkers who are also my friends.”

Juan Arbelaez, Corporate

Blackboard is a company that offers vast markets and products. I love that you have options for growth and change in your career. You have flexibility to find a career within the US or expand your horizons internationally. Most of all, it is a company that loves to inspire growth in its employees. I have been able to experience working my way from an Account Executive to Regional VP with the help of my mentor and our management team excelling my potential. It's a company that you can find a long-term home with because you have so much potential to change and do anything you want.”

Lindsay Fishback, Sales & Business Development

Blackboard is clearly focused on creating a diverse and inclusive culture that depicts oneness and support for one another. I am proud to work for such an organization, and I am excited to embrace, celebrate and learn more about the cultures of my colleagues around the world, as they have done mine during the ‘Celebration of Indian Culture’ event.”

Allen David, Corporate

When I joined Blackboard in Brno, we had around 20 people in the office. I still remember how the team treated me and the friendly (and almost family-like) atmosphere we had. Now, years later, we have grown to 130 people in the office and become part of a much bigger organization, but I still feel the same atmosphere and the same team spirit as I did when I first started.”

Petr Polasek, Technology

My Blackboard story has been one of a fast paced, diverse, and rewarding experience and professional growth. My various project assignments have exposed me to various domains and allowed me to be an expert not only in most technical areas of the Blackboard flagship product (Learn), but also to gain overall understanding of the current trends and big topics of the Education industry.”
