At HudsonWay Immersion School (HWIS) we pride ourselves on creating an environment in which professionals can grow and develop.

You are encouraged to talk to others in different departments, learn new skills, work on interdepartmental projects and / or committees, and develop, both personally and professionally.—As a matter of fact, we require it. We work to support, challenge, and inspire each other, so we can all succeed together.

We offer a competitive salary commensurate with experience, and a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, FSA, 401K, paid holidays, PTO, and additional voluntary benefits as well. We also support H1B sponsorship.
