ParentPowered PBC is an education technology company that creates simple tools for great parenting. The company’s first product, Ready4K, is a text messaging application for parents of young children. Each week, parents receive fun facts, easy tips, and messages of encouragement to help them grow their children’s cognitive and social and emotional skills. Ready4K’s research- and standards-based text messages build on the things that parents already do with their children – like getting ready for school, eating meals, and going to the store – to make parental involvement fast, fun, and easy.

We are currently one full time engineer (CTO) and one half time contractor who built the original stack. We operate on 3 week sprint cycles, with the entire (8 person) company helping to prioritize the work to be completed during the sprint, with daily checkins and weekly updates when we meet in person in San Mateo for team day (Thursday). The rest of the week we work from home and communicate via Slack.
