Job Description


Enable Student Success by Unifying Data for Educators

Schoolzilla is a Renaissance product group living our mission to students’ lives at scale by
enabling people to use data to run great schools. Teachers and school leaders need lots of data to make good decisions for their students, but most of them can’t get the data they need in any kind of useful format. Schoolzilla's team of engineers, data visualizers, educators with lived experience, and K-12 knowledge holders have done just that. We've made data easy to find, understand, and act on for school districts everywhere.

Every day we live our founding values: Driven by Mission, Better Together, Teammates
Matter, Equity At The Center, and Intellectual Humilarity (humility + hilarity).

How You Can Help

Schoolzilla’s Engineering team is responsible for empowering school systems across the
country to take action based on data by delivering timely, accurate, and useful data. As a
member of this team, you’ll be driving product innovation. You’ll collaborate with product
managers, designers, and your teammates to take ideas from concept to reality, utilizing
your full range of technical skills and a healthy dose of user empathy.

  • Craft fault-tolerant data pipelines and distributed systems to support millions of students
and continue scaling
  • Partner with your peer engineers and product owners on getting new features and

  • Evolve data interactions with proprietary data systems, allowing us to bring new
customers onboard easily and cost-effectively
  • Develop and improve internal services, scripts, and tools that will be utilized throughout
the company
  • Ensure that timely, accurate data and metrics are delivered consistently

  • Advanced level SQL coding abilities
  • Significant professional experience in ETL / ELT using cloud-based databases at scale,
such as Microsoft SQL Server, Postgres, BigQuery, Redshift, and/or Snowflake
  • Experience designing, coding, and supporting enterprise-scale ETL / ELT pipelines that
balance efficiency and intuitive usage
  • Experience architecting data warehouses and data lakes that are organized, performant,
and easy to use
  • Demonstrated fluency in one or more major programming languages, such as Python
  • Mission-Driven: You feel a deep sense of ownership for your work, and a relentless
desire to deliver better results. You are passionate about solving problems for our users.
  • A Lifelong Learner: You love learning new things. You're curious and ask good
questions. You solicit feedback from others, accept it with grace, and act on it.
  • Flexible: Comfort with technical ambiguity and welcoming of rapid iteration

Bonus Points For:

  • Understanding K-12 education data
  • Experience with the tools we use, like AWS (including Glue and Lambda), Apache
Airflow, Data Build Tool (DBT), Snowflake, and Docker - plus experience with tools we
don’t use, but should, and the wisdom to know when to recommend them
  • Enthusiasm for working in a remote or geographically distributed Agile software
development organization using DevOps practices.
