We’re all about education. We relish new ideas, open debate, and thoughtful questions. That’s how we learn from each other and improve our work.


We believe our staff should reflect the diversity of the students and communities we serve. Those diverse perspectives make us a better, stronger organization.


Our mission is never-changing, but our work is constantly changing. We value creativity, agility, and growth. 


All of our best work happens in partnership. We work alongside schools, civic organizations, and governments to improve the lives of students. Teamwork, both inside and outside the organization, is vital to our success.


Good lives lead to good work. We offer 14 holidays, up to 20 vacation days, up to 10 sick days, and plenty of flexibility to help you balance home and office responsibilities.

Our Competencies

The College Board Competencies are a set of four simple, straightforward characteristics and behaviors we believe make a great College Board employee.

Generosity in service of students, colleagues, and partners

We’re looking for people who pay close attention to the needs of others and respond to them; treat all colleagues with respect, kindness, and candor; and care about others’ success as much as their own.

Command of evidence and technology

We value critical thinkers who assess the accuracy and relevancy of data and use it to support ideas and solve problems; who communicate clearly and concisely; and who make it a point to master the technologies relevant to their work.

Getting things done, with a premium on quality

An ideal College Board employee takes pride in doing excellent work and meeting deadlines; is always looking to learn and improve their skills; and actively seeks (and welcomes) new, simpler ways to work.

Be a great boss

A great boss makes sure the members of their team have clear roles and responsibilities; recognizes their strengths and cultivates their superpowers; and works to attract and keep the people who are the best fit for the job.

Creativity Sprints

From IT hackathons to days-long brainstorming competitions, our teams regularly come together for intensive, creative sessions that tackle real-world problems.

Pencils Down

At our company retreat, we take a break to reconnect with each other and our mission through inspiring guest speakers, employee talent shows and sharing good food. One of the highlights is hearing directly from students. There’s no better reminder of why we do what we do.

Affinity Groups

Staff-led affinity groups offer professional development and a platform to address issues important to women and members of the African American, Latinx, and LGBTQIA+ communities.

College Board Cares

We match employee donations to our partner charities up to $1,000 per employee. The organizations we support help to further our mission to connect students to college success and opportunity.

Equal Opportunity Employer

The College Board is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all employees and to providing a work environment free of discrimination and harassment.
