About Us

Lando is on a mission to transform after-school care.
Our technology creates a unique video-game like classroom experience that pulls kids away from screens and towards enriching and collaborative in-person experiences. Join us on our journey to build engaging and enriching classes across subjects like engineering, music, dance, art, and whatever else inspires us!
In just a few months, we have grown to serve over 500 students a week across the Bay Area. Our seed stage startup is backed by top investors across consumer and education technology, including Maveron, Reach Capital, SNR, Ulu Ventures, and Black Capital.

About the Role

As a Game Engineer, you will design and build innovative in-person games that span across hardware and software, combining them in novel ways to deliver an engaging experience.
Every Lando class is taught by an onsite teacher, with 16+ students in the classroom. Our software and hardware transforms an ordinary classroom into an interactive and gamified learning space.
We’re looking for an engineer who loves to design and build games, and is always dreaming of novel interactions and new ways to engage kids. Success in this role requires someone who takes ownership and thrives with lots of agency and creative freedom, and has the drive to constantly strive for quality and to build things kids love.

Responsibilities

Design and build games from 0 to 1 in Unity using C#
Architect and build robust systems that deliver a reliable experience for our students and teachers
Integrate hardware as necessary with Unity to power new games

Qualifications

B.S. in Computer Science or equivalent experience as a programmer
5+ years of experience with Unity and C#, or a strong portfolio showcasing your experience and talent
Proven ability to build games from 0 to 1
Bonus: some comfort working with Arduino (or other hardware platforms) to experiment with hardware that can unlock new meaningful interactions
Bonus: some comfort working with artist tools such as PS, AI, or Figma to enable quick prototypes and small changes to the art

Compensation

We offer a base salary ranging from $80,000 - $130,000, coupled with meaningful equity (0.5% - 1.5%) in a fast-growing company. Additional benefits include:
Unlimited PTO
Company-provided lunches, and a stocked fridge and pantry
$1000 equipment credit to set up your workspace, along with a top of the line Macbook Pro or equivalent
Comprehensive medical, dental, vision, life, long-term disability, and 401k benefits

Location

This role will be in-person, as it will require visiting Bay Area schools (for playtesting), along with frequent team brainstorms in our Palo Alto office.
Lando is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Our team is stronger because of the different backgrounds, abilities, identities, and mindsets each person brings. Even if you do not meet all of the qualifications listed above, but are passionate about making a difference in children's lives and excited to drive our mission forward, we want you to apply!
