Engineering at EveryDay Labs

Engineering team and processes

Hey there! We’re still a small team (4 software engineers and 4 data engineers) and we’ve got big projects on our roadmap with a steadily growing client base. Rather than push projects further into the future, we’re hoping to bring in someone to help take a share of our roadmap and help us “keep the lights on” for our current products.

We have daily standups, use two week sprints, have regular retrospectives, and review all code through github PRs. We are otherwise light on process and tend towards pragmatic one-off meetings to sync-up or work on pair program often on hard problems and code reviews.

Every engineer is trusted with a high level of ownership and choice to decide what they build.

Technical Challenges

Building an SMS pipeline from scratch using a serverless platform

Converting a manual process of districts uploading CSVs to SFTP into an automated pipeline of retrieval, normalization, and import of data into a service to support needs of downstream products that would otherwise need to work with raw CSV

Designing a database schema for daily imports of student and attendance data that supports high volume with lots of duplication. Using normalization to keep storage size minimal but also tuning the schema so denormalizing queries remain performant even when they are rehydrating large amounts of historical data for aggregate metrics and reporting

Projects you might work on
  • The SMS pipeline mentioned above. It sends to millions of households each month!

  • A web portal for school administrators that pulls from all our backend data sources to provide aggregate insights and trends to help schools develop new interventions and keep track of new patterns in attendance that may emerge due to continued COVID circumstances.

  • Building a service to store all the valuable data computed during our data-analysis process, which currently outputs the communication messages we send via text and mail. Along with the output messages, there are many valuable intermediate pieces of data that we derive during data-analysis. Storing all this data in a service will allow us to build more robust district reports and help us improve our own products

Working at EveryDay Labs

We're passionate about making an impact on the lives of students, families, and educators. In a recent engagement survey we conducted, 95% of respondents (83% of company) gave a favorable score to the question EveryDay Labs really allows us to make a positive difference.

Company Values:

Behavioral science at our core

We design and optimize our work based on how people actually behave, rather than how we wish they would behave. We seek opportunities to deepen our understanding of behavior, to increase our impact, effectiveness and expertise.

Innovation grounded by evidence, driven by results

We innovate rapidly based on the available evidence, assessing regularly to continuously improve, and employing RCTs whenever possible. We embrace opportunities to learn from successes, failures, data, experiments, feedback and each other, knowing that blame fixes nothing and that how we respond and learn is what really matters.

Stronger together

We are a collection of diverse individuals, united by our mission, who strive to be greater than the sum of our parts. We disagree compassionately, collaborate actively, commit to a path forward.

Diversity and Inclusion

At EveryDay Labs we strive to build a team that represents the students, parents and educators we serve. We believe diversity of people and perspectives is a strength to enable us to make more inclusive decisions as we unite behind our mission to drive more equitable student outcomes.

Our engineering team is committed to building a more diverse team by ensuring that we increase the pipeline of candidates through our interview process from a variety of sourcing outlets. We follow a regimented interview process that was specifically designed to reduce bias during the hiring process.
