Description

Flocabulary is a rapidly growing edtech company that uses music to drive student achievement and foster a love of learning. Students in more than 20,000 schools use our rap songs and interactive learning tools to master academic content.

We're a collaborative team, supporting each other with code reviews, pairing, and knowledge sharing. We hold ourselves to high standards, but don’t blame and finger-point. Engineers are encouraged to hone their craft and ship excellent code; we also stay engaged with the product development process, thinking deeply about the way our tech will be used and having high empathy for our users. Flocabulary's web application runs on Django and Python on the server-side, and React/React Router/Flux on the client-side.

As an engineer, you’ll work on one of our four pods (Learning, Growth, Retention, or Internal Tools). As a member of a small, fast-moving team building an education app that just reached 1 million users, you’ll have an instant impact on teachers and students in classrooms around the world.
