Hello, we're Packback

Packback Questions are online learning communities that help professors encourage, grade, and tie hard metrics around curiosity in their students, all while giving students a safe place to be fearlessly relentlessly curious about what they're learning in class.

An Insider's view of Packback

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am excited to come to work every morning, not only because my role is meaningful and dynamic, but also because my days are filled with the high energy of my coworkers and kisses from our office pooch, Pepper! The Packback office is fueled by a team of passionate, curious, and supportive individuals that both motivate and celebrate one another.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are constantly trying to figure out how to ask more impactful questions. As a company focused around curiosity and discussion, we strive to understand professors' needs and help consult in the best way possible. We analyze data, find the gaps, and question our way to the root of the problem. We are fearlessly curious.

The professional development opportunities at Packback make it not just a job, but a place dedicated to my growth.

There are numerous avenues in which Packback rewards individual success. The options range from friends publicly sharing your success stories at the company-wide meetings to ringing a large bell bolted to the wall to celebrate your biggest steps forward. Results never go unnoticed and are ALWAYS rewarded!
