Join the team igniting futures
All work, all play
Our mission is to help 10 million students navigate their higher education journey, because we believe that no one should have to make life’s biggest decisions alone.
What we can achieve together far outshines what we can do alone
Unibuddy was founded because connections and community matter. That extends to all aspects of how we work. Ideas are debated respectfully with open minds and hearts. We set aside ego so we can figure out as a team what is best - for customers, for the business, and for each other.
We aren’t satisfied with the status quo
Opportunities are made, not given. So we own our development and embrace uncertainty as a chance to learn and innovate. We are self-aware and vulnerable when we make mistakes. And when we aren't sure, we're humble and ask for help. Feedback is a gift, and as a result, our comfort zone is constantly expanding.
We're cool under pressure, and deliver when the stakes are highest
We're all entrepreneurs - we think on our feet and stay scrappy. When confronted with a barrier we don't freeze, we're thinking how we go over, under, around or through it. But this doesn't mean we bulldoze. We're thoughtful, we're curious, and we bring people on the journey. We employ empathy, a growth mindset and collaboration to arrive at a better solution. Our superpower is problem solving. And, we love to celebrate when we find a better way forward – because making progress day by day ultimately fuels our mission.
Our ultimate yardstick is impact
Through it all, we stay focused on the big goal. We hold ourselves accountable to what we signed up to achieve. We believe it's not just good for Unibuddy, it accelerates our own capabilities and career progression. Our mantra is 'work smarter, not harder.' We don't measure ourselves by how many boxes we can tick in a day. We measure ourselves by how close we come to achieving the dreams and goals that seem the craziest and most ambitious. Even as we fail along the way, our ultimate yardstick is impact. The impact we make on our customers, our students, and each other is the reason we jump out of bed every morning.
