About

ClassDojo's mission is to give teachers, parents and students the power to transform education from the ground up in every classroom in the world. This communication platform makes it easy to share moments from class in a more open, frequent and positive way — including classroom activities and skills students are building — through photos, videos and messaging. Today, ClassDojo is used in 2 out of 3 US schools, as well as an additional 180 countries.

Challenge

ClassDojo was looking to extend its existing team to accelerate development of both its iOS and Android mobile apps. With a growing community of millions, ClassDojo also needed to ensure overall app quality & stability and offer reliable apps that were smoothly synced across all platforms.

Solution

STRV provided one engineer at the start to support the ClassDojo team but soon scaled up to 8 dedicated iOS and Android engineers to handle the majority of ClassDojo's mobile development.

Highlights

ClassDojo is backed by a number of leading investors, including SV Angel, Paul Graham, ImagineK12 (now part of Y Combinator), SoftTech VC, General Catalyst, Shasta Ventures and others. ClassDojo won a Crunchie Award in 2015 for Best Education Startup, and has been named one of Fast Company's most innovative education companies.
