D2L’s Culture

D2L is constantly evolving, but our mission remains the same—to transform the way the world learns. Employees are inspired by this mission and genuinely enjoy coming to work every day. You see the impact of your work and make a difference. D2Lers are proud of the work they do.

We operate with six Leadership Competencies at our core. They describe the leadership behaviors we look for in our employees. At D2L, employees are empowered to exercise their leadership skills by living and embracing these Leadership Competencies no matter what their role is or at what level of the organization they currently sit. All D2Lers are encouraged to grow and build upon these six competencies to further develop their leadership skills.

D2L provided the opportunities to chart my own development and career path with 100% support of my direct leader through to the Senior Leadership Team (SLT). The icing on the cake is the rare privilege of having members of the SLT as mentors which is incredible and unquantifiable.

– Yemi Oyediran, Senior Manager, Support Performance

D2L is a trusted partner to our clients in a way that I’ve never seen before from an educational technology company or LMS provider. The D2L teams focus on aligning our work directly with the goals and vision of our clients, to ensure success on all levels. Complex organizational problem solving becomes a supportive, team effort when you know that D2L is with you every step of the way! 

– Whitney Williams, Senior Adoption Specialist

Collaboration is a fundamental aspect of D2L’s work culture. During my 10 years working at D2L, I have had the pleasure of working with extremely supportive team members who bring diverse skills and experiences to work together to achieve our goals and deliver innovative outcomes for our clients. I am very grateful for being part of this talented group of individuals where everyone feels valued and respected. 

– Reem Soliman, Manager, Technical Account Management

D2L values people by fostering a culture of respect and care. As an immigrant woman in Canada, I feel accepted and supported at D2L. Here I enjoy working with diverse teams of experts who make technology and learning accessible to millions across the globe.

Our Story

From the first concept to where we are today, D2L has evolved over the years into a platform that is making a difference in the way the world learns.

John Baker, a student at the University of Waterloo, created a learning platform in 1999 with a purpose of using technology to dramatically transform learning. Check out this video from John to learn more about how “we built this.”
