We want to teach a lesson to the stagnant EdTech market: Learning should be fun!

We’re looking for a senior engineer with at least 3 years of experience to join our development team.

We work primarily with OpenResty / Ruby on Rails / Redis / MySQL on top of AWS services (EC2, Cloudfront, S3, to name a few).
Interesting problems around adaptive learning for Pre-Ks, growing scaling/performance challenges with millions of behavioural events, etc. All fun, really 🙂

Required skills:

Well-rounded engineer (data structures, algorithms, clean code, etc).
Care deeply about your work and about the success of your projects.
Relentless in finding simple, elegant solutions to complex problems.
The more active you are on Github, Bitbucket, etc, the better!
Working permit for the EU.

Other requirements:

You are a quick learner and can easily adapt to change.
International experience is a plus - Erasmus, abroad work experience, etc.
Excellent communication skills and knowledge of technical terms.
You work well under pressure, push things forward, and achieve objectives.
Our mission is to change the way young children learn, this should drive you too.

What will you find here?

Indefinite contract with competitive salary and a generous Stock Options package.
Fast-paced startup environment. Flexibility and creativity are crucial.
We work hard. It’s what it takes to do a GREAT job.
Plenty of snacks and drinks 24/7.
Office located in central Madrid (next Plaza de España).
A rapidly growing startup with 2M+ children using our services.
A fun and young team with great camaraderie. We hope you like pizza… team lunch every friday!


Send your CV with as much info as possible, including examples of projects, or links to public repositories (Github, Bitbucket, etc) to [email protected]!
