Job Description

We’re building a movement - an education revolution. We’re building a world where anyone, anywhere can have access to the best education regardless of where they were born. At our core, we believe education is a right, not a privilege.

    • You take pride in the quality of the software you work on, and the way that it meets the needs of its users
    • You have a strong technical foundation, and you are an expert with modern product development tools and methodologies
    • You know how to ship and iterate - you balance quality and speed while bringing new features and products to market
    • You can influence and win over others by laying out the pros and cons of different options and the reasoning which supports your decisions
    • You maintain an open-mind and foster a collaborative atmosphere that makes people eager to work with you
    • You have a high level of skill and craftsmanship in building software that stands the test of time

Ideally, you also have experience with some of:

    • Experience in high-growth start-up or scale-up environments
    • Developing and maintaining products that are used by many thousands or millions of people
    • HTML/CSS, Javascript/Typescript front end design and implementation, with modern frameworks like React
