What do we do?

Teachers Pay Teachers is a community of millions of educators who come together to share their work, their insights, and their inspiration with one another. We are the world’s first and largest open marketplace where educators share, sell, and buy original educational resources.

The New York Times called the phenomenon we lead “A Sharing Economy Where Teachers Win”.

With over 2/3 of US teachers using the site, and 4 million educators globally, we are seeking engineers who love solving complex problems and want to make a meaningful impact in educators’ lives.

  • Ensure the health, reliability, and performance of our marketplace from a technical standpoint.
  • Take ownership and responsibility for producing maintainable, monitorable, and highly available software systems.
  • Be an active member of the engineering community by blogging and speaking about your experiences at TpT.

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.
