Overview

You are a Senior Software Engineer passionate about leading engineering teams.  You may want to head towards a management role, or you may enjoy a purely technical leadership position -- either way, we are looking for you. This is a great opportunity to work with an amazing team and drive the technology of learning products and platforms. We operate in a highly collaborative environment with Product and Design to build experiences that matter to our customers. At Varsity Tutors, engineers do not just write code, they actively participate in the conversation on what and how to build the systems and solutions that matter to our customers. If you love your customers as much as we do, we'd love to hear from you.

This position is a full-time remote opportunity! (We've been remote friendly for years and that isn't going away).

Everyone can grow at Varsity Tutors.  We strongly encourage members of underrepresented groups and people of diverse backgrounds to apply. Apply now if this is a role that would make you excited to come into work every day!
