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 Manager, you will help support teams and build products that will give every child on Earth an education they love. You will coach and empower teams to take ownership of their goals together, strengthen engineering culture, and be an active part of teams to achieve pioneering outcomes. We value those who create psychological safety, including building a blameless, learning-oriented, curiosity vs judgment culture.
We appreciate Engineering Managers that want to be hands-on with their team. We don’t expect that you would be coding full-time, but we expect you to be comfortable and able to support the team in the details of their work as a contributing member when it makes sense.
You will be a match if:
- You have at least 8 years of professional software engineering experience
- You have at least 3 years of professional experience managing direct reports on a product team
- You are in the Americas time zone
You might be a good fit if:
- You coach teams and individuals to achieve high standards and top performance, and have the results to back that up
- You build safe environments that encourage collaboration and learning
- You obsess over quality, and continuously look for ways to improve how teams archive it
