Senior Backend Engineer

Location: Seattle, WA (HQ)

Actively Learn’s mission is to enable every student to learn deeply.

Our vision is why we are building the best digital reading platform for students. For too many, reading is simply not as educational and rewarding as it should be. We reinvent reading so that students deeply understand what they read, build connections between texts, and actively construct knowledge.

As a company, we want to help students learn, think, and become people who do great things. We are optimistic about what thinking young people can accomplish and we look forward to the world they will build.

We’re hiring a senior backend engineer to join our growing engineering team and help build out and scale our platform and services. We’re looking for someone who is as passionate about education and collaboration as they are about technology.

Culturally, our team is a small, highly collaborative start-up, and each of us get to wear a variety of engineering hats.

What you'll do:

  • have ownership of our backend API, architecture, security, and platform infrastructure
  • write code with a focus on maintainability, scalability, and testability.
  • drive best practices and mentor backend engineers on backend & microservice development
  • improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes
  • find and address performance issues across the backend stack
  • work with a tight and highly collaborative team of smart and engaged engineers

What you'll bring:

  • 5+ years experience as a backend engineer
  • Solid experience developing APIs and microservices
  • Solid experience with relational databases
  • Experience developing and operating AWS based platforms
  • Experience in two of the following languages: Node.js (preferred), Python, or Go, or Java
