As an engineer at Kodable you will have an enormous impact on the product, the company, and millions of kids lives. You will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects including architecture, ui, networking, optimization, and everything else in-between. You’ll work closely with every member of the Kodable team to push production code on an almost daily basis.

About the team:

The Kodable team is full of bright, ambitious people who are passionate about their jobs. You’ll work with a product team with over 50 years of collective experience creating top-notch games for companies like EA, Leapfrog, and Scientific Learning. Every member of the team has a voice in making Kodable great.

Right now, we’re working on improving user experiences on both our parent and teacher dashboard. You’ll join us in creating new features and improving existing ones to increase the value of Kodable to every parent, teacher and child who uses it.

What you’ll do:

Work closely with every member of the Kodable team to push production code on an almost daily basis. We move really quickly.
Work closely with our designers and other developers to build a truly great product that teachers and kids will love.
Own entire feature sets. We’re still a small team, so you’ll be asked to build large, complex systems with little outside interference. No bureaucracy, just build it.

Who we’re looking for:

You have 1+ years web development experience in a production environment
You care deeply about programming education
You have contributed significantly to the release of a production-level application (preferably not a side-project, something with actual users)
You have experience with APIs and interfacing with server-side code (saving/loading data, offline syncing, etc)

Highly Preferable if:

You have experience with Ruby and JavaScript
You have experience working with a front-end framework in a production environment (AngularJS preferred)
You have experience experience with Test-Driven Development
Bonus Points for:

Experience with Sinatra, Sequel, or ActiveRecord
JavaScript build systems such as Gulp
You've worked with AWS Lambda and background jobs
