SchooLinks is looking for a mid to senior level, experienced, full stack developer to join our quickly expanding team and looking to leave a lasting impact on a product that leaves a lasting impact on students' lives.

We are looking for someone who can really understand problems and data from a conceptual level— we don't just want to tell you what to do do, but want you to figure out how to solve problems and build internal frameworks and approaches that will scale to millions of users

Your experience: 

  • You are not comfortable just building what you're told... specifically you must be comfortable taking ownership over technical decisions about code structure, tooling, and be interested in the actual product you're working on
  • Looking to grow professionally (and ideally looking to do it quickly!) 
  • At least 4 years of experience shipping production quality code in both the FE and BE 
  • At least 2 years of experience in Django OR React (we can help you get up to speed in one, but not both) 
  • Experienced with Python and Javascript 
  • Experience using MySQL or some other SQL engine in a production environment 
  • Experience building complex and modern UIs 
  • Past work writing tested code and doing test-drive development

Nice to haves: 

  • Knowledge of web app caching and performance optimization 
  • You either want to be coming a technical manager or are open to that possibility in the future (we're looking to actively groom technical leadership in our organization) 
  • AWS experience 
  • Experience with Python Pandas 
  • Previous work with Celery/RabbitMQ 
  • Interest or experience with education and educational data (standards/conventions, SIS, state reporting, etc.)

Desired Skills

  • Django
  • Fullstack Development
  • MySQL
  • ReactJS
