About Steve & Kate's

What we do

Steve & Kate’s (www.steveandkate.com) introduced individualized learning in a summer camp setting, pioneered flexible enrollment and automatic refunds and implemented technology so aggressively that Apple featured us on their website. We believe that children learn best in settings that allow them to discover their own potential with minimal adult guidance and support. We’re entering our 38th year but it wasn’t until the 26 year marker that we decided to grow. We’re just getting warmed up. Our philosophy and approach is what has set us apart from others since 1980.

Our engineering team

Steve & Kate’s is looking for a full-time Senior Full Stack Engineer to join our small but mighty engineering team, based in San Francisco, CA. You’ll be building operational and educational software for our camp experience and beyond. Our software delights tens of thousands of children and their families, all over the country.

You’ll be joining a team of highly-experienced builders with startup backgrounds from companies such as Carbon Five and Twitter. We’re also really nice people.

We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We encourage people from groups currently underrepresented in tech to apply.
