We are looking for a full stack engineer to help us change how districts across the country operate and run every single day. You should have a passion for developing products for communities traditionally underserved by technology and a desire to build an inclusive and collaborative engineering culture. If you are tirelessly curious and want to have a huge impact with the work you do everyday, we could be a great fit!

What it's like to work here:

We work in small, nimble teams of 2-3 engineers. Projects that each team takes on range from real-time search and export tools, database and server optimization, or building our front end system. Teams rotate regularly so you’ll be working with different people every few sprints.

We’re proud of our ability to be full stack. We all have preferences for different parts of the stack, but we all share responsibility for and are empowered to improve our entire platform. This commitment also encourages us to grow in areas we’re less familiar with.

We take code quality seriously and are constantly improving our codebase. Every project we work on has dedicated time to address tech debt and we prioritize code quality initiatives on our product road map. Oh, and we never ship code without writing a full suite of tests (don’t worry, we’ll help in case this is newer to you)!

We strive for light and flexible processes. Each team decides how they’ll get work done, but we try to ensure that working solo, together, or even remotely are all equally effective. Daily standups, sprintly retrospectives, paired programming, randomly assigned code reviews, and “mob reviews” of larger changes are some of the practices we use.

We believe that making great products requires collaboration and empathy. Not only do we work closely with our product and design teams, we make it a point to pay regular visits to our customers. To better understand the challenges our customers are facing, every few months we’ll spend a week directly supporting our client success team.

We are focused on creating a great work environment. Most of all, we work hard to make an environment where honest feedback, mutual respect, and personal growth are valued. We want to make sure everyone feels comfortable bringing their whole self to work.

What you'll bring:

- Intense curiosity and problem solving nature — it brings you joy to chew through difficult technical problems and develop simple, clean code and architecture for complex needs
- Web development experience with extensive knowledge of Rails, JavaScript, and jQuery
- Collaborative development style: you enjoy pair programming and learning with and from our team
- Ability to balance attention to detail with broader project goals and timelines
- Be an important part of a diverse, energetic, and highly skilled engineering team
- Participate in daily stand-up meetings and contribute to swift, iterative build processes
- Ability to balance attention to detail with broader project goals and timelines
- Passion for personal learning and supporting accessibility to technology, particularly in underserved communities
