classdojo Remote, San Francisco, California, United States Full-time 2022-07-27

ClassDojo's mission is to give every child on Earth an education they love.

We started by building a network that connects teachers, children, and families. ClassDojo’s flagship app is the #1 communication app connecting K-8 teachers, children, and families, globally. They use it to share what’s happening throughout the day through photos, videos, messages, and activities. It is actively used at an unprecedented scale: in over 95% of US schools, reaching ~51 million children in ~180 countries. We are now beginning to use this network to give kids the best learning experiences in the world, far beyond those a standard school can provide. 

We hire for talent density. Our team comprises the most talented, entrepreneurial, and innovative teammates from around the world, with deep backgrounds in education and large scale consumer internet, including Instagram, Netflix, Dropbox, Uber, Y Combinator, and more. We’re building a company where the most talented people want to work. We believe you’ll do the best work of your life here—and you’ll pioneer the future of education, too.

What you’ll do:

As an Engineering Leader you'll help build a world class consumer product engineering team that will give every child on Earth an education they love. We seek an inspirational personality who can coach and empower others, strengthen engineering culture and support teams to achieve pioneering outcomes. We value those who create psychological safety, including building a blameless, learning-oriented, curiosity vs judgment culture.

  • You have at least 4 years of professional software engineering experience
  • You have at least 2 years of professional experience managing direct reports
  • You are in the Americas time zone
