Elevate Labs is on a mission to help people everywhere improve their minds.

The ability to write well and speak eloquently deeply affects your trajectory in life, in any profession. Unfortunately, many people exit high school and even college extremely unprepared in these areas, so we became obsessed with building a tool to bridge this gap. In 2014, we started developing the game-based educational app Elevate. To date, the Elevate app features 35 games (with more on the way), has over 25 million downloads, and has received numerous accolades, including Apple’s App of the Year award.

But the Elevate app was just the beginning. Soon, we’re launching a meditation app that will focus on improving other areas of the mind, including stress management, sleep quality, and much more. We’ve created a truly personalized experience that makes meditation more accessible to millions of people, including those who previously felt that meditation doesn’t work for them.

We're looking for an experienced generalist who is interested in doing whatever it takes to build the systems and applications that can define the future of cognitive training and proactive mental health. We are an agile team of customer-focused engineers who like to use test-driven development, continuous integration, short development cycles, and code review. We are constantly working closely with product, content, and art teams to deliver the best user experience within existing technical constraints and developing ways to eliminate those constraints when possible. We use many technologies across many domains (Ruby, C++, Objective-C, Java, Swift, Gradle, Lua, Python, Rails, SQL), so the ability and desire to move around and try new things is important.

* Understanding, building, and maintaining the systems that make Elevate possible
* Working closely with product, games, and content teams to build great user experiences
* Thinking two steps ahead about what we can and should be building to make Elevate great

* Shipped at least one consumer-facing product
* Experience designing and implementing RESTful APIs
* Experience with compiled and scripting languages
* Experience testing your own work and communicating with QA when you can't

Bonus points:
* Experience with client-side programming (both mobile and web)
* Experience with popular web frameworks like Ruby on Rails or Django
* Experience with distributed systems
* Interest in educational technology
* Interests in test-driven development and software development best practices

* Deliciously healthy chef-cooked meals
* Equity
* Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance
* 401k plan
