An Insider's view of Blueprint Test Prep

What's something quirky about your company?

We're kind of like a little family! Even though BP has been expanding rapidly we still have that small start-up company vibe. I remember my first day I showed up in slacks and by lunch Matt (our CEO) and I were making jokes about how I was the best dressed person in the office (everyone else was much more casual, I quickly loosened up).


Senior Marketing Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My coworkers are some of the smartest people I’ve had the privilege of working with. The virtual doors are always open and it’s not unusual for me reach out to someone from a different department to pick their brain about a problem or just to get a different perspective. Our mission effortlessly fosters a a creative and collaborative environment.


Content Marketing Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Being part of the dynamic, innovative team at Blueprint has allowed me to lead projects outside of my previous realm of expertise. I credit the entrepreneurial spirit and relentless bias for action found all throughout the company - it’s in the Blueprint DNA. We act quickly and collaboratively, which has accelerated my career development.


Sr. Director, Program Operations
