Mission & Funding

We are proud to be a not-for-profit organization, but our status is a reflection of our mission, not our funding model. Our work across the three services is highly valued in the global higher education community, and we have the resources necessary to maintain a great work environment that encourages innovation and excellence. 

Benefits and Compensation

ITHAKA believes in investing in our most valuable resource—our people—and we offer a rich benefits package. We work in university towns, and our benefits—from full medical to time off—are comparable to those of top-tier universities. Our salaries are competitive with those of education and technology companies.

Professional Development

Knowledge, education and progress are core values at ITHAKA. This extends to our employees. We encourage and provide paid training, on-the-job learning, and tuition reimbursement.


Our work is international in scope, and our workforce reflects the communities we serve. The diverse backgrounds of our staff contribute to ITHAKA's culture of creativity and spur us to consider multiple perspectives as we develop our services.
