Right now we are looking for a well-balanced developer with skills in Javascript and CSS, and solid experience in Ruby-on-Rails. We want a connoisseur of UX who care about the polish and the gears and know how to make it happen. Bonus points if you have knowledge of large server architectures and experience working on production scalable web applications. Bonus points +5 if you come to us from the education space.

  • You have the flexibility to live your life. We know you have hobbies, interests, and families. We want you to love what you do, but not live what you do.

If you like people, are passionate about education, and want to build the learning spaces of tomorrow, we want to hear from you. Please don't send us resumes with long lists of technologies. We don’t care about certifications. We want to know how you are brilliant, one-of-a-kind, and amazing.
