Role Description

Staff Software Engineer

AdaptedMind's dream is to make education enjoyable and personalized in order to improve the way children learn.

If you want to help produce fun, beautifully designed games that teach millions of kids math, reading, social studies, science, and more, this is the right job for you! We are looking for a Staff Software Engineer to help lead our efforts to create a game-like, adaptive learning experience.

We're growing at an unprecedented rate, and as an early engineer at AdaptedMind, you will have a huge impact on the direction of that growth as we transition to a more modern technical architecture. The role is full-stack (we are a small team which means everyone works on everything) and you will be joining as a key decision-maker around our technology choices and code structure.

We're a very small team with a huge bias for simplicity. As an early employee, you will be able to take on a large amount of responsibility over a diverse range of interesting challenges and build out the company culture with us as we grow.


  • React, Typescript (frontend)
  • Golang (backend)
  • AWS (infrastructure)
  • PHP (legacy codebase)
  • Postgres (DB)


  • You love the idea of creating a game-like experience on the web, working with complex frontend designs and animations, organized and logical backend apis, and scalable infrastructure.
  • You like the idea of working on the backend, frontend, infrastructure, or data pipelines as needed to solve problems and delight our users. You are an expert in one or more of these fields, and you have created and designed scalable end-to-end systems.
  • You enjoy discussion around the technical direction of the product with your team members.
  • You contribute high-quality code to create trustworthy and engaging user interfaces.
  • You thrive in a collaborative environment involving different functions, stakeholders, and subject matter experts.
  • You would be able to work at least part of the time in-office at our SF mission location once the world opens up. We can help with relocation if needed!


  • Ability to communicate effectively and work in small teams with minimal supervision
  • Strong work ethic and attention to detail
  • Extremely organized & process-oriented

Company Culture

We produce videos with lessons for kids about how to work on procrastination, how it's ok to make mistakes, or how to manage friendships. We try to embrace what we teach ourselves. We enjoy a casual atmosphere while being truly passionate about helping kids learn important and sometimes difficult concepts.

Our environment is highly collaborative, with strong opinions loosely held. As an early employee, you would be responsible for building out the company culture with us as we grow.
