OverDrive Culture

What makes Rakuten OverDrive unique?

OverDrive is a place where talented, intelligent individuals can bring their unique perspectives, creativity and critical eye to help people learn and grow. At our core, we’re a group of readers who love to make books accessible to as many people as possible. We’re bibliophiles through and through, and that makes us passionate about what we do.

Our workplace culture is shaped by our shared attitudes, values, goals and practices. We strive to be a force for change, and that’s why we go to great lengths to ferociously champion literacy, give back to our community and continuously improve ourselves.
