Overview

Teaching kids to think critically and communicate effectively has never been more important, and NoRedInk helps students become better writers in more than 60% of middle and high schools in the U.S. We’re looking for a talented Infrastructure and Tooling Engineer to further our quest to help every student harness the power of the written word.

  • Deliver impactful solutions at scale, building on the foundations of software that handles hundreds of thousands of writes per minute

About You:

  • You are comfortable working remotely

  • Personal growth through a management relationship prioritizing support, empathy, clearly communicated expectations, and consistent modeling of our company’s core values
  • A competitive salary and equity package in a high-growth, well-funded startup with massive traction
  • Excellent health, vision, and dental benefits (U.S. Only)
