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 most importantly mission-driven people (that have left everywhere from Microsoft to Airbnb to join us).


Engineering at Pathrise

Engineering team and processes

You’ll be working with a product team of 3 to 5 people, building and iterating towards a higher quality and higher value platform that help support our job seekers (i.e. Pathrise fellows) and our mentors. You’ll have the opportunity to shape our product team’s culture and strategy and impact thousands of job seekers in finding their next careers.

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 scientific approach to making decisions and solving problems.

Diversity and Inclusion
Connect with our team during your hiring process

As part of our commitment to an inclusive workplace, we are happy to offer prospective engineers the chance to connect with our engineering employees who come from underrepresented backgrounds. It’s a way to get a better sense of our team and what it might be like to work with us.

If you’re interested in connecting with our team, be sure to bring this up during one of our introductory calls!

Perks & benefits
  • 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).

  • 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.

    75% coverage for health insurance.

  • 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!
