At digedu we have a job todo. We're changing the way education works in the classroom. We build blended learning software and hardware that makes hands on digital education available for k-12 kids at the moment of learning.
We face many problems. For example, we recently solved how to deliver 1mbps video per user to 4000 kids in the same school, at the same time, with no drain on the school network. This is just one of the many problems we face.
To do this difficult yet rewarding work, we're building an exceptional remote team of multi-talented engineers. Engineers who are polyglots, comfortable working with all aspects of the tech stack (hardware, software, backend, frontend, mobile, and more). Our team consists of front-end focused engineers and backend focused engineers but most importantly, highly creative engineers who get the job done, whatever that job may happen to be.
Our tech. stack includes:
Our product includes:
- Hardware: Tablets, Laptops, Servers, Access Points.
- Software: Learning Apps, Analytics Platform, Lesson Creator, Mobile Management.
- Infrastructure: AWS, Beanstalkd, Nginx, Memcached, Highly Distributed, Asynchronous.
