Overview

It has never been more important that students around the world have the tools and support to learn through digital instruction — and that they be able to harness the power of the written word. NoRedInk now helps students in more than 60% of middle and high schools in the U.S. become better writers. Our adaptive curriculum deeply engages learners by personalizing exercises to their interests, guides them step-by-step through the writing process, and boosts their skills through differentiated practice. We’re relentlessly focused on our mission to unlock every writer’s potential and to create a future where all students can harness the power of the written word.

*This is the same job description as the “Tooling and Infrastructure Engineer” – we’re experimenting with which title people find more intuitive. Feel free to apply to either one!

To further advance our mission, we are looking to find a talented Platform Engineer. Your role will be to improve developer experience and system stability, while serving a collaborative team of engineers.

What You Will Achieve:

  • Help engineers work faster and easier by building next-generation tools
  • Gain professional experience with functional programming languages like Elm, Haskell, Dhall, Nix, industry leading infrastructure technology such as Kubernetes and Docker, (and still, nix) and performant build tools
  • Experience personal growth through a management relationship which prioritizes support, empathy, and clearly communicated expectations
  • Deliver impactful solutions at scale, building on the foundations of software that handles hundreds of thousands of writes per minute

About You:

  • 3+ years of experience
  • You are excited to search out and debug problems in unfamiliar systems
  • You value your autonomy. You prefer building goals with your team rather than receiving them from a manager
  • You have at least 1 years of professional experience developing applications
  • You value code quality and well tested code
  • You’re excited about working with or learning Haskell, Nix, Dhall, and Elm
  • You’re comfortable managing Linux, MySQL, or PostgreSQL
