About the role

We are looking for a senior full-stack software engineer to take significant technical ownership over Literably's web services and core assessment processing system. You will play a leading role in both defining the technical roadmap and scaling the system to handle our rapid user growth. We work with AWS, Python, Django, Redis, and Postgres, but specific experience with this stack is not required. Prior experience operating autonomously and proactively at early stage startups is a big plus. Other nice-to-haves include experience with signal processing, audio data analysis, machine learning, and automated speech recognition.

Why you should join Literably

Literably is a fast-growing edtech company on a mission to develop every child into a proficient reader. Our flagship product is an online elementary reading assessment. Using our product, K-5 students read aloud and answer questions on a device (Chromebook, iPad, laptop, desktop), and Literably generates key data for reading instruction that would otherwise be collected manually. This saves teachers enormous amounts of time and drives critical intervention decisions for young readers. We currently serve over 500 schools, including several of America’s largest school districts.
