Klett World Languages is uniquely positioned as a start-up publishing company in the U.S. and Canada. Because of this, we have been able to think outside of the box and redesign language learning to meet today’s needs. It’s no surprise that we are called “disrupters” within the world language publishing industry.

We make a concerted effort to respect work-life balance through generous paid time off (PTO) and remote work policies, flexible schedules when possible, and paid professional development. We encourage a growth mindset, provide coaching, and promote belonging and inclusivity. Klett World Languages also rewards its team for its growth and success through individual bonuses tied to evaluations, prizes and rewards tied to sales earnings, and yearly retreats.
