ClassDojo's mission is to give every child on Earth an education they love. We're already in 95% of US schools, used by 51m kids, and growing rapidly.

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, all built by a team of 65 people [1]). 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.

You’ll work on production code from day one in a pair programming environment, deploy often, move quickly, and have your work used by millions of students, teachers, and parents around the world every day. In addition, you’ll help us further develop our high-quality engineering culture, one that values rapid iteration, collaboration, and best practices. Our code is heavily tested and deployed daily, and we’re serious about building a world-class engineering team. 

You might be a good fit if:

  • You're excited to get things done, in a fast-paced environment
  • You have an ownership mindset: you are comfortable with both responsibility and accountability
  • You're thoughtful about creating and maintaining a world-class engineering culture
  • You work well in teams and enjoy collaborating with engineers, designers and product teams

Curator of The Pragmatic Engineer Job Board
11/12 on The Pragmatic Engineer Test. The company is a purposefully flat organization which technically means "no" to #9. I see it as a positive for a company to be clear about their setup!
