SVP of Software Engineering, gt.school (Remote) - $320,000/year USD

Job ID: 4643
Description

Traditional education methods are obsolete: children are passively lectured in a classroom, bored without opportunities to interact or shape their experiences. While EdTech is still in the ice age, the gaming industry has become massive by immersing kids in exciting new worlds. If you are a leading architect with game development expertise, we challenge you to build the future of education. 

At gt.school, we are building an adaptive platform that places gifted & talented students in the center of their learning experience and enables the creation of individualized paths. We want this educational metaverse to be as engaging as a video game, and we need seasoned gaming engineers to make that happen.

You will have full ownership over architectural decisions for this educational platform, drilling into the code and using your expertise to lead a team of talented engineers. This is not your typical leadership role - we have a streamlined structure and automated management activities, enabling you to focus on technical decisions and deliver up to 4x more business value. 

If you want to use your expertise to revolutionize the education industry, apply today!

What you will be doing
  • Making technical decisions. You will lead the team in the right direction on the most complex challenges and newest technologies, making decisions that have a company-level impact.
  • Improving the development model. You will design systems to simplify the development process and guide engineers to consistently deliver with high quality.
  • Getting hands-on with the product. By tackling architecture and coding challenges, you will draw technical insights on how to improve products and solve business issues.
What you will NOT be doing
  • Wasting your time in meetings, committees, and administrative tasks. We have automated management overhead so you can focus on creating business value through hands-on work.
  • High-level strategies without implementation guidelines. Your recommendations must be based on product-level insights.
Key Responsibilities

Create a fully-functional, scalable software development model capable of delivering products that will revolutionize the education industry.

Candidate Requirements
  • 5+ years of experience with coding or architectural design.
  • 5+ years of leadership experience developing enterprise software products at scale.
