Lead Software Engineer

Pen Pal Schools Ok-sign    posted almost 5 years ago

FullTime | $71,000 | Austin, TX, United States


PenPal Schools is a fast-growing edTech company with over 30,000 users, an innovative app that our customers love, a strong revenue model and a social mission of promoting cultural awareness and literacy around the world. We have just been accepted into the very competitive Capital Factory incubator in Austin, but our CTO can’t go make the move (he has a new baby boy). We’re looking for someone to take over maintenance of our web app and development of our new mobile app. Compensation includes competitive salary and equity, and if all goes well this can become a founder position.

We’re looking for a software developer that shares our passion and will join our team permanently. Our app is built using Django and Bootstrap on top of Postgres and runs on AWS. Experience with Javascript and templating languages is a must, and desired skills include Python, CoffeeScript or Javascript, CSS or LESS, and HTML.

This is a great opportunity for a leadership role in a fast-growing, high energy, and socially conscious organization. If you’ve got the technical chops and a passion for education, languages, or just making the world a little smaller, email jobs(at)penpalschools(dot)com
