Solve hard problems that truly matter with a team that's smart, experienced, and kind. What problems? Help kids afford college by making it easier for them to find and receive scholarships.
The Job: You'll be writing vanilla JS, React, HTML, CSS, and wiring things to Rails on the back-end. More technical details forthcoming—read on.
The Department: We're a 4-member product engineering team within a 13-member engineering department
Technical Details: Rails, React, AWS, Postgres, Elasticsearch, Cassandra, Redis, Memcached, and some internal tooling in Go
The Interview Process: You'll talk to me (Product Engineering Manager), then our CTO, do some remote coding to chat code, come on-site and pair, meet the team, and meet a founder.
You're pragmatic, smart, work well with others, and take ownership of features from planning to production. Preferably, you're proficient with some of our technical stack, and you'll make the entire team better as an individual contributor, a teacher, and an occasional foil.
We take a lot of pride in accomplishing disproportionately big tasks, and to do that we treat engineers like professionals with clear expectations and regular feedback. And we're kind, respectful, and obsessed with the customer experience along the way.
