Engineering Positions
Product Team Engineer

Talented engineers have many companies to choose from, which makes the engineering team at Minerva that much more extraordinary. The salary and benefits are competitive, but the reason they chose Minerva is the company’s mission. We are re-imagining and then building a university that embodies the next generation of higher education. We have an admissions team that finds the best students worldwide based on merit alone while avoiding bias and standardized test scores, an academic team designing a new curriculum that incorporates advances in the science of learning, operations and student life teams that enable the students to travel to and study in seven major cities around the world, and a product team that builds technology to make it all possible.

 

We need you to help build that technology. You’ll be part of a small team that works in close consultation with other teams—including product management, admissions, marketing, academic, and company leadership. Your typical week will include designing, coding, and releasing new features. We’re big on collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and cross-training; and we start every week with a retrospective, so if something’s not working for us, we fix it. Over the medium term, you will receive significant mentoring, feedback, and deliberate career development.

 

We are still growing. There are plenty of high-value and challenging new projects. We are also shifting many projects from prototypes and MVPs to thoughtfully designed long-lived systems. This is an opportunity to do interesting and important work, and to do it right.

 

Most of our engineers have held many jobs in the past. Minerva is special because it is more than a job. It’s a chance to build something long-lasting, to leave a legacy and add meaning to your career. Our first class of students is entering their Senior year, having spent their first three years in San Francisco, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul, and Hyderabad. Next up are London and Taipei. We are building a new university from scratch, and we’ve just started. Come join us!
