About the company

Remind, the leading communication platform in education, helps educators reach students and parents where they are: their phones. With over 30 million active users, we’re one of the fastest-growing companies in education technology, but we have our sights set on something bigger: giving every student the opportunity to succeed.

About this role

The Remind Engineering Team collaborates to deliver features for our users and customers while setting and maintaining SLAs to ensure reliable system performance. We prefer strongly typed languages over dynamic, and leverage both relational and non-relational data structures as needed, supporting tens of thousands of requests per second. We bias towards using the right tool for the job, including Typescript, React, Redux, GraphQL, Ruby, Twirp, and many AWS services (Aurora, DynamoDB, SQS).

We’re looking to bring on a Software Engineer who can drive our web frontend codebase forward today and set the long term direction of the web app used by millions of parents, teachers, students, and administrators. You'll collaborate with Backend Engineers, Fullstack Engineers, and cross-functional teams to improve UI/UX, maximize site availability, performance, and uptime, and help develop new features for students, parents, and educators.

Not in San Francisco? No problem! Our team is distributed within +/-3 hours of Pacific Time.

About you:

  • You have consistently shipped high quality code to production as part of a team
  • You enjoy tackling interesting, complicated problems and following them through to the end
  • You collaborate effectively with engineers, product managers, and designers to break down product requirements and maintain visibility on projects
  • You have strong opinions about component design and codebase architecture and balance them with the practical concerns of shipping solutions for customers
  • You write clean code and have significant experience with Typescript, React, Redux, GraphQL, Node.js, and frontend build systems like webpack and Babel
  • You have built single page web applications that serve significant consumer traffic with an emphasis on maintainability and user experience
  • Others enjoy working with you because of your positive attitude and technical competence

What you'll do:

  • Design and implement systems to improve our communications platform supporting over 30 million students, parents, and educators
  • Drive the architecture of our frontend codebase through initiatives such as unifying frontend code patterns, fostering testing best practices, decreasing build times, etc.
  • Deliver features that delight the millions of parents, educators, and students that use Remind every day
  • Support uptime through participation in our eng-wide on-call rotation
  • Help tighten our SLAs so that the performance of our website exceeds the expectations of even our largest and most demanding customers

Compensation:

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • 401K
  • 100% health coverage for you and your dependents
  • Open vacation policy
  • Paid parental leave

Remind is an equal opportunity employer, and we're committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We aim to represent the students, teachers, and parents we serve, and we welcome, support, and empower all the diverse individuals in our community.
