About Achieve Test Prep

Most working adults find it challenging to overcome the many obstacles associated with obtaining their college degree. We serve as advisors, teachers, tutors, and mentors, helping our customers, primarily healthcare workers, be more successful at college and on the job. We utilize non-traditional methods, like testing out of college credits via the credit-by-exam process, similar to Advanced Placement (AP) tests, and provide wrap-around services that build confidence, motivation and discipline.

Why work for us?

Founded in 2008 in the U.S., Achieve is a 100% remote company that hires the best candidates from around the world. Become an integral part of a work culture that is diverse, flexible, collaborative, and compelling. We are a growing company that provides financial security with opportunities for professional growth as well as the ability to:

  • Work entirely from the comfort of home
  • Set your own work schedule
  • Earn a competitive compensation commensurate with your location
  • Know that your ideas and opinions are important and will be heard
  • Help change lives through education

At Achieve, you are guaranteed to make a difference everyday-both in the work you complete and in the lives of our customers.

Achieve is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to diversity in its workforce. We post our open positions on multiple job boards, in an effort to attract candidates who represent different backgrounds, experiences, identities, and perspectives.

We believe this well rounded approach positions Achieve to make employment-related decisions based exclusively on job-related qualifications, without disregarding applicants because of their race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, marital status, disability, veteran status, citizenship status, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy, genetic information, mental health or any other status protected by law.
