About Us 

At Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT), we're unlocking the power of educator-created content. More than 3 out of 4 teachers in the U.S., Canada, and Australia come to TpT every year to get teacher-tested, engaging, and rigorous materials. What began as a humble exchange for teachers looking to share lesson plans has since exploded into a massive online marketplace where teachers have created 4 million resources for all aspects of PreK-12 education. More than six million educators worldwide (including teachers, administrators, and parents) have downloaded TpT resources more than a billion times. According to Fast Company, Teachers Pay Teachers is one of the top 50 Most Innovative Companies in the world! If you haven't heard of TpT yet and want to learn more, just ask a teacher.

The Platform engineering teams are at the core of TpT Engineering. We build the infrastructure, services and tooling that power our rapidly growing TpT marketplace.

  • Provide expertise in data warehousing, systems integration, and rapid software development
  • Support team members with architecture-level and code-level feedback
  • Manage stakeholder relationships and dependencies, and working with technical leads on your teams to determine priorities and requirements

  • At least one year of engineering management experience leading high-performing, results-oriented teams
  • Track record of successfully developing the careers of direct reports
  • Comfortable with lean engineering and project management practices with a track record of successfully managing and delivering several large projects
  • Expertise with modern data warehouse design patterns and tools
  • Able to proactively identify ways in which to improve the quality, timeliness and reliability of data

  • Enjoys working collaboratively with peers across business and engineering teams
  • Strong ability to evaluate technical tradeoffs
  • Well formed opinions on quality and maintainability of technical systems
  • Interest in working in a fast paced tech and product oriented company

An Insider's view of Teachers Pay Teachers

What are some social events your company does?

Every month a different team in the office will host a Teacher's Lounge. These can be anything ranging from a pumpkin-carving contest, to Office Olympics, where teams of TpT-er's represented a variety of different countries to compete for Office Olympic gold.

What projects are you most excited about?

My team works on the cloud infrastructure that we run all of our applications on, and we’re excited about creating pre-production environments for every pull request a developer opens. Using Kubernetes, we'd create temporary environments that mimic production but are isolated for testing purposes. This empowers our team to build with confidence.

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of our company values is “We Learn and Grow Together”. The first few members of the Schools team started right around the same time, so we really had to embody that value! We were building a new set of features and got to make a lot of decisions. Looking back at the code we were writing when I started at TpT, we’ve definitely learned a lot.
