We’re looking for a software engineer to join our small, speedy, and mission-driven team. As the very first engineer, you will have an outsized equity stake in the company, significantly impact a first-of-its-kind product, and play a pivotal role in building a fun, diverse, and inclusive team culture. ### 💻 What you’ll do * Own and ship features and experiments end-to-end, taking a sketched idea (or a pain point from a user call) to a deployed feature in our production mobile app * Develop, improve upon, and maintain our backend services, like our core conversation and grammar services. This includes experimenting with new NLP and speech recognition models and APIs. * Write clean, maintainable, performant code and participate in code reviews * Work closely with the CTO and CEO to understand user needs, brainstorm user-facing product features, and identify new opportunities * Monitor and scale infrastructure as our user base and usage grows * Create and iterate on systems to support content creation based on product stage and need, which could range from quick and dirty one-time scripts, to building out a lightweight CMS using third party tools ### 🥞 Our Stack We use Flutter, Python/Flask, Firebase, and Google Cloud Platform, and are working on big, unsolved NLP and Speech Recognition problems like dynamic conversational content generation and accurately understanding accented English. ### 😄 Who you are * You thrive in fast paced environments with rapidly changing directions, priorities, and requirements * You learn new things quickly, and have a strong bias towards shipping code quickly too * You crave, and have demonstrated, a high level of technical and product ownership * You believe no job is too small or not worth your time – if it needs to get done, you’ll hop in and do it! * You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and collaboratively tackle meaty problems * You have 2+ years of industry experience building a user-facing consumer app (mobile or web) * You are a strong communicator and are able to explain and express your ideas clearly ### 🍰 Bonus * You’ve built and owned mobile apps that are used and loved by many * You are globally minded, or a serious language learner yourself * You're curious about how people learn, and are passionate about education
