**All engineering hiring is on hold until 6/20 for this role. We recently hired a great class of engineers and we are currently in the onboarding phase with them.

Wonderschool is building a platform to bring preschool to millions of children who don’t have access today. We partners with preschool teachers to open neighborhood schools in their own homes. Most preschool teachers struggle with starting a business, so we handle the planning, marketing, and business administration so they can focus on being a great teacher. In the process we’re also building the largest network of preschool teachers in the world.

Our tech is focused on creating an efficient marketplace for families and preschools, and providing web and mobile tools for teachers to promote their programs, handle paperwork and payments, and communicate with their families and fellow teachers.

Our stack is Elixir/Phoenix/PostgreSQL on the server and React/React Native on the front-end. Today we’re an ten person team: three engineers, a product designer, a head of early childhood education, and five business operations people.

We’ve raised a seed round from First Round Capital, Omidyar Network, 500 Startups and a number of other amazing venture capital firms.

The early childhood education market is incredibly underserved, and there is far more demand than supply for quality preschools and daycares today. By helping teachers start their own schools, take control of their careers, and make more money than the industry average we plan to transform the way we provide early childhood education in America.

50% of our product team is remote and we open to a remote engineer for this role
