As a Senior Backend Engineer you will help build upon and improve the API services that deliver a personalized learning experience to millions of families worldwide. You will also get a chance to work on internal tools that help us better understand our users and offer them exactly what they need.

More specifically, you will:

Bring your analytical skills to early product definition sessions and help shape product ideas into technically feasible features.
Document product, technical, and architectural decisions for the benefit of both engineering and product audiences.
Own your work from development to production and ensure its quality, maintainability and supportability.
Help keep our majestic monolith lean and modular. Currently we use Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Sidekiq but we'd consider new tools/frameworks/languages if our business would benefit.
Provide educational content to suit the users' individual needs
Reward and motivate users to continue progressing through the content, ensuring their experience is educational and fun
Focus on delivering a unique experience for each of our users, adapting to how they best consume content
About you:

The ideal teammate for us would be someone who believes that communication, empathy, inquisitiveness, and open-mindedness are fundamental to being successful in any endeavor.

You should have:

Considerable experience designing and developing APIs with Ruby on Rails (or similar languages/frameworks) that scale to thousands of requests per minute.
A deep understanding of the backend stack: HTTP, Relational Databases, Background Processing Systems, Asynchronous Messaging Systems
Experience in both horizontal and vertical scaling of backend systems
We also look out for:

A DevOps mentality of owning a service all the way to production.
Comfort working with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript - especially to build admin interfaces.
An appreciation for good User Experience, an eye for good Visual Design, and attention to detail.
