Why join us?
  • You'll work directly with students and recent graduates and make a life-changing impact on their early careers.

  • In less than a year, we have gone from zero to enrolling fellows that will go on to earn $20 million in salary and represent $2 million in expected revenue for Pathrise.

  • Our team consists of a top 1% engineer from FB, a DocuSign engineering manager, the first recruiter from GitHub (who was at Google and the White House in the past), a software engineer from Google who developed courses for Udacity, and other talented, but more importantly, mission-driven people (that have left everywhere from Microsoft to Airbnb to join us).

Engineering at Pathrise
Engineering team and processes

DISCLAIMER: This is not your average engineering position. While 50% of your time is still spent coding, you end up spending the other 50% of your time advising and teaching aspiring engineers. This is for you if you're not just interested in applying your programming chops to a meaningful product and mission, but also interested in spending significant time in sessions working directly with and mentoring students.

Technical Challenges

There are two main reasons why we need software:

1) Developing a course management platform to handle a variety of student circumstances.

2) To collect and analyze data on the job search (in applications, interviews, and offer negotiations) in order to inform our curriculum and improve student outcomes.

Projects you might work on
  • Building a community forum for our fellows to support each other and answer each other's questions during their job search.

  • Developing a way to track and an algorithm to analyze the effectiveness of the resumes of our fellows based on the reply rate and success rate of their applications and how correlated those are with specific features on the resume such as particular keywords, content sections, styles of formatting, and other decisions.

Working at Pathrise

Everyone on the team is mission-centric and puts the students we work with first. We are transparent about everything that we can be (e.g. everyone on the team knows our exact pay strategy and what we have in the bank). We seek to have a meritocratic and particularly a scientific approach to making decisions and solving problems.

Free Food

Free lunch and snacks!

Generous Vacation

Unlimited vacation policy (though to be fully transparent, you can't always make the best of it given our recent growth and that there's a lot of work to be done).

Pet Friendly

Pets are welcome!

Flexible Hours

Most of our team is in the office from 11 am to 4 pm, but varies heavily besides that. The team stays flexible for their work at Pathrise, and so it only follows that Pathrise should be flexible for the team.

Health Insurance

75% coverage for health insurance.


We'll cover your commute.

Work from Home

You can work from home whenever you want when it makes sense and there are no important meetings or reasons to be in the office.

Team Activities

When we can find the time, we'll have fun going axe throwing or playing some games together here and there!


We'll pay for you to go to relevant conferences.


If you enjoy travel, we have plenty of opportunities to visit a variety of cities and campuses around the US.
