Senior Software Engineer, gt.school (Remote) - $80,000/year USD

Job ID: 4641
Description

Help us to revolutionize the education industry!

Research shows that students learn best from individualized, interactive instruction. Yet today, kids sit passively in a classroom being lectured to, with a single teacher often managing 25 children or more. The current education system is not tailored to help children learn effectively. We want to change that.

At gt.school, we are building the first educational platform for gifted and talented children, driven by cloud services, machine learning and scientific insights. We develop an education metaverse with sophisticated gamification and an adaptive learning environment that engages children from day one and is fun to use. Our goal is to make children score top grades in one-fifth of the classroom time and without the boring exercises.

In this role, you will use your advanced coding skills and software design expertise to deliver quality code according to a high-level specification. In a globally remote team of software experts, you will leverage AWS serverless and other cloud technologies to implement a highly scalable and error-free educational platform. Experience in the gaming industry is appreciated. If you’re looking for a position at the forefront of digital transformation, this is an opportunity for you!

What you will be doing
  • Implementing features: Make technical decisions and write high-quality code to deliver new features without causing regressions.
  • Learning new technologies: Learn how to use AWS technologies to rebuild products or build new ones in the cloud.
  • Owning a codebase: Become an expert in the products and uncover potential bugs through root cause analyses and code reviews.
What you will NOT be doing
  • Adding one or two features per year: Our engineers work with multiple codebases and technologies and are not pigeonholed into one single product.
  • Mindless code writing: Every code change must consider architectural implications.
  • Managing projects or tasks: We have automated management overhead so you can focus entirely on software development.
Key Responsibilities
  • Make quality and cost-saving improvements to existing products through high-quality code and design-level considerations.
  • Tackle the most difficult coding challenges in our organization.
Candidate Requirements
  • Senior-level coding experience in the software industry
  • Motivated to learn cutting-edge cloud technologies and push them to their limits
