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.

Technical Recruiter

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.

Lucas Chi

Engineering Manager

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.
