    What do we do?
    Teachers Pay Teachers (or TpT, as we call it) is a community of millions of educators who come together to share their work, their insights, and their inspiration with one another. We are the first and largest open marketplace where teachers share, sell, and buy original educational resources. Our community brings immediate access to a world of expertise and offers educators more time to focus on students and teaching.

    The New York Times called the phenomenon we lead “A Sharing Economy Where Teachers Win”.

    Why do we do it?
    Our dream is to make the expertise and wisdom of all the teachers in the world available to anyone, anywhere, at any time. We believe that we can help create real good in the world by empowering the educators to teach their best.

    Who are we looking for?
    We modeled our company culture on the virtues of our community of teachers and we are assembling one of the most talented teams in New York. We think this article in EdSurge about sums it up.

    We’re building a team of deeply good people doing great things. We listen first. We love our work. And we are all teachers and learners in whatever we do. We believe that productivity is never an accident. It’s the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, passionate team work, and focused effort. We want every day to be fun and to matter.

    TpT Engineering
    TpT engineering in NYC is a young and rapidly growing team. You will play a key part of defining our culture and choosing our tool set and be driven by a common goal - to provide an online marketplace where teachers empower other teachers.

    We value engineers that keep our customers in mind every step of the way and we're investing in TpT's infrastructure to make sure it's not only successful, but an absolute joy to work on. This will put us in the best position to pursue new opportunities as they arise.
