Our client is a leader in creating immersive, rigorous digital learning experiences that look great, play great, and help students expect great things of themselves. They’ve been described as the best tech company in education, and the best education company in tech.

In this role, you will join a talented team tackling the toughest problems in education with the best ideas in technology – including user experience, APIs and services, data analysis, and deployment pipelines. You’ll play an active role in imagining and improving product design and the classroom experience.

We hire engineers “for the slope, not the intercept” – we’re looking for intellectual ability, flexibility and ability to learn, and commitment to work together in tight-knit teams.

What You’ll Do

  • Impress the toughest customers around – seventh graders – by:
    • designing and building engaging, quirky, fast frontends using frameworks like Angular and React
  • Make life better for passionate, overworked teachers by:
    • architecting apps that meet the ultimate reliability and uptime challenge for digital tools – is this better than paper?
    • building well structured and documented RESTful APIs so that their apps can share data with ease
    • designing tools, workflows, and culture to ship code from your laptop to classrooms frequently and confidently
  • Help school administrators build great schools by:
    • building data pipelines that respect privacy and ensure security while offering useful insights
    • implementing code that runs great across platforms under variable memory and network constraints
    • analyzing performance and squashing tricky bugs using tools like New Relic, Splunk, Alert Logic, and AWS CloudWatch
  • Learn every day by:
    • leading collaboration, pull request-ing, and mentoring on a cross-functional team
    • participating in cross-team share-outs, brownbags, and workshop series

Example Projects You Might Work On

  • Crafting immersive animated environments and characters using the latest web and canvas frameworks
  • Architecting algorithms to select the right activity for the right student at the right moment.
  • Modeling data from student activities to show teachers just the right advice
  • Simulating hundreds of thousands of kids to implement scaling, stability, and security improvements
  • Improving the deployment and testing automation pipelines

You Must Have

  •  BS/MS in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 5+ years of professional software development experience
  • 2+ years experience with server-side development preferably in Node.js or Java (Dropwizard)
  • 2+ years’ experience with a modern JavaScript framework (like Angular, React, etc.)
  • Strong CS and software engineering fundamentals, and the wisdom to know when they’re relevant
  • Experience with database technologies (modeling, ORMs, tuning)
  • Experience deploying production systems in the cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  • Strong communication skills in writing, conversation, and maybe silly gifs 

Extra Credit For

  • Experience with tools we use every day:
    • Build: Linux, Jenkins, Chef, Docker, SCSS
    • Storage: Postgresql, Redshift, S3
    • Deploy: Chef, AWS (EC2, Lambda, SQS, etc.), New Relic
  • Experience with tools we don’t use, but should, and the wisdom to know when to recommend them
  • Proven passion for building and learning: open source contributions, pet projects, self-education, Stack Overflow
  • Experience in education or ed-tech
