Generalist Software Engineer

San Francisco, CA
Are you excited about learning new things? Applying your technical skills to a wide variety of challenges? Seesaw is hiring generalist software engineers to work on the key challenges facing us as we scale from 100K+ classrooms to 1M+ classrooms.

What does this mean day to day? Other engineers in this position have written and deployed a service to allow parents to download a zip file of all their child's work efficiently, built up our paid school offering on the web, done data analysis to understand where teachers are churning in our sign-up flow, contributed to Android feature development, figured out AWS auto-scaling and migrated our production environment to that new setup, and much, much more.

We have big ambitions (and already moderate scale -- we're used in 1 in 4 schools) but pride ourselves on a scrappy, versatile engineering team that can get whatever needs to be done, done. If this role sounds interesting, you'll need a CS degree, and 2-4 years of prior work experience with some exposure to at least 2 of the following technology areas: Web, iOS, Android, Backend/Python.
