We’re hiring engineers, who are passionate about technology and education to work on our MasteryConnect product. MasteryConnect is the assessment and curriculum platform that visually tells teachers what their students know and don’t know on particular standards. This helps guide their instruction and lets them focus on what matters most: improving student learning.

Like our customers, we value a learning culture and expect our engineers to work closely with product and support to build the best possible solutions, not just write code to a spec. We put our money where our mouth is.

  • Build, deploy, and maintain our Assessment Management System (AMS), MasteryConnect.
  • Work with Amazon Web Services through tools like Terraform to provision infrastructure, reduce costs, and scale traffic.
  • Write testable, performant code that can scale to tens of millions of requests per day.
  • Mentor and teach other engineers, encouraging best practices and fostering code reuse.
  • Work with technology stacks that includes Go, Ruby, ES6, Docker, Terraform, and React.

What we look for:
