About the role

We’re looking for an experienced, compassionate, and thoughtful engineer to build out integrations between our effective tools for video in the classroom and the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard.

This role will require collaboration with other application development teams to define and implement LTI integrations throughout our suite of products. Success in this role will require finding agreement among engineers as to how to best integrate LTI in multiple existing applications. It will also include the implementation of common features across different applications.

Why is this role special?

  1. Create products that will advance education. Schools and districts around the world depend on Screencastify to digitize their curriculum and communication. The need for and benefit of video-based learning has never been more clear than it is now.
  2. Work with an extremely talented team. A team of less than 5 built a product used by millions of people. We've achieved more than teams 10x our size by solving problems that matter and putting product quality above all else.
  3. Tackle our most interesting and impactful problems. Our team is still small, and people wear many hats. You'd jump between product, marketing, internal tools, design — participating in every phase from inception to implementation. Absolutely no boredom.
  4. Join us at a magical time. We're profitable and support tens of millions of users with a small team, which gives us a huge green field to work with. You'll join at the perfect time to shape how we grow from here.

What you'll do

  • Complete an in-depth review of our applications that will be integrated with LTI
  • Build new integrations between our tools and LTI from start to finish: through conception, research, maintenance, and polish
  • Complete an in-depth review of our applications that will be integrated with LTI
  • Lead in the creation of corresponding technical strategy and understand our long-term product vision
  • Build improvements to performance, reliability, and product polish
  • Participate in architectural discussions and review pull requests
  • Build and improve processes and internal tools with simplicity and productivity in mind
  • Provide technical mentorship to colleagues in best practices, and provide actionable, empathetic feedback and guidance

You're perfect for this role if you...

  • Have 4-6+ years of building and maintaining web applications that have reached a large audience. Ideally, have experience with OAuth and building API integrations between applications.
  • Have experience writing applications for web browser, writing HTTP Servers
  • Can be comfortable using Angular, Nest.js, Firebase, and JavaScript/Typescript
  • Can readily learn most technologies as you go
  • Care about the business implications of anything you build. You're not just going after cool stuff — you understand the balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
  • Are flexible, dedicated, and curious
  • [Bonus] Have experience with Learning Tools Interoperability and its implementation

Benefits

  • Competitive compensation. We take a data-driven approach to our compensation strategy so all employees are paid competitively and equitably.
  • 401k plan. We want to invest in present you and future you, which is why we offer a generous 401k match with our 401k plan.
  • Minimum vacation policy. We recognize the importance of taking personal time off, and require our employees to take at least 15 vacation days per year. You’re also encouraged to take additional paid time off, as needed.
  • Parental leave. Generous paid time off for parents to bond with the newest addition to their family!
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance. We cover 100% of employee medical premiums and 50% of employee dental & vision premiums. Plus, all employees receive a free One Medical membership.
  • Flexible work policy. Gone are the days of being in an office from 9-5, Monday through Friday. We recognize there are better ways to measure productivity than counting the number of hours you’re in the office and that sometimes the office isn’t the best place to be productive.
  • Professional development. Each department has a professional development budget and employees are encouraged to take workshops, attend webinars, join associations, and anything else that could help grow their careers. Did we also mention employees get free access to Udemy for Business?
  • Divvy bike membership. If you’re in Chicago, take advantage of an annual Divvy membership -- on us

We highly encourage you to apply for this position, even if you feel you do not meet all the requirements. You do not need to fit this exact mold.

At Screencastify, we foster an inclusive, supportive, fun and challenging team environment. We value having a team that is made up of a diverse set of backgrounds and respect the healthy expression of diverse opinions. We embrace experimentation and the examination of all kinds of ideas through reasoning and testing. Come join us as we continue to change the world through video.
