We’re building the first mobile platform for early education – a $60B market in the US alone – with the largest network of schools and providers across the globe. Based in San Francisco & Denver, our team is passionate, talented, and customer-focused. We feel fortunate to be able to build a platform that has a measurable impact on the daily lives of teachers, parents, and kids. The team includes former Amazon, eBay, LinkedIn, Square, and Zynga staffers, and investors include GGV Capital, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Eniac, ICONIQ, and Mark Cuban.
We are seeking a talented senior engineer to focus on building out the core product platform for educators and parents. We develop rapidly, with ongoing releases. We also have exciting challenges around scaling (we're growing rapidly!) and data (massive data set). This role would closely collaborate within engineering and product, to deliver amazing scalable experiences on our web and mobile platforms.
We view each engineer as a true product engineer with a high degree of ownership and autonomy. We are a lean, fast-moving team that prefers to avoid meetings and focus 100% on driving impact.

A passion for improving the world through education
Early education – preschool, childcare, camps, after school – is so critical for a child’s development, a must for working families, and an industry filled with talented educators across the globe. So why is the system so broken?
Educators are mired in paperwork and licensing requirements, often using a mixture of outdated tools, spreadsheets, and paper forms… Parents are left in the dark during the day with no connection to their kids and no easy way to communicate with their school.
We’ve done a lot of listening, a lot of observing. We’ve spent countless hours in early education providers of all shapes and sizes. We knew there had to be a better way. Brightwheel is focused on making life easier for administrators, teachers, and families – while fixing some of the systemic issues in early education. We’ve worked hard to ensure that brightwheel is intuitive, easy, and fun to use. And we’re just getting started!
