Why We Do What We Do

Sphero is transforming PK-12 education with accessible tools that encourage exploration, imagination, and perseverance through STEAM and computer science. With the help of educators around the world, we are empowering learners of all backgrounds and abilities to discover their interests and passions while equipping them with the skills they need to be the world’s future Changemakers.

With presences in Greenville, TX, and Hong Kong, and with remote globally-based employees, Sphero has become the market leader in EdTech solutions, loved by millions of educators, students, and parents worldwide.

We’re equal parts innovators, geniuses, jokers, and cool kids. At Sphero, you can do the work you love, be yourself, and take fun seriously.

Sphero’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI):

At Sphero, we recognize the importance of inclusion in all aspects of society, and for everyone to feel they have a seat at the table, particularly in the workplace.

In 2020, we updated our company values to add “Changemakers” and established an internal committee focused on improving Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity, also known as the “Changemakers.” The purpose of this committee is to identify and enact changes both for our employees, and, to the extent we can as a business, for society at large. We do the former by identifying new processes or programs so that our employees will feel more included at work so that we can retain a more diverse workforce. We also support hiring practices that, by nature, are more inclusive.

Beyond changes internally, we are actively looking for ways to improve our customers’ experiences with and exposure to our products regardless of their gender, abilities, socioeconomic status, or ethnic or racial backgrounds.

We are committed to working with vendors and distributors who embrace this vision as well.

This is a company effort at the individual and collective level to continue to learn, develop, and evolve. We are supported by our Board of Directors in our efforts to make positive change. Are we perfect? Not at all. But we are actively working on becoming better each and every day.

"The work at Sphero continues to be incredibly special. To start, I am constantly challenged with problems that command a commitment toward mastery. My colleagues are exceptionally bright and equally passionate. More so, I feel like our leadership team has created an environment for everyone to contribute their best abilities. To top it off, I have 3 grade school aged children who are keenly interested in my work and always want to be testers of our latest products."
