Ellevation Education Software Engineer in Boston, Massachusetts
Are you hungry to be a hands-on, inspiring technical leader for the organization? Do you relish the opportunity to frequently validate, release and improve the code that you develop? Can you take on vital initiatives and duties for the company, spark and lead discussion, and help shape the company?s technical direction while providing timely and quality support and education across the organization?
As a Software Engineer at Ellevation, you play a key role in building dynamic web applications and services, implementing complex data and API integrations, and driving the concept-to-implementation development process. You help shape our engineering practices and standards through direct coding activities. Your ideas translate our product and business strategy into technical solutions. You research and evaluate new technologies and figure out how, when, and where they will apply to our engineering roadmap.
We are embarking on an effort to overhaul key portions of our tech stack -- front end, back end, cloud infrastructure and all of the connecting parts -- to better position us to build new products and enter new markets. We are looking for great, team-first engineers with real-world experience. And who would relish the unique opportunity that we offer: to evolve the foundation of our engineering team with the backdrop of a mission-driven company that has a thriving, growing business.
Our Engineering Culture
We are organized into small, cross-functional teams that focus on high-level objectives in service of our customers. We focus on outcomes over output. Our teams are empowered to research, prototype, and develop ?MVPs? to solicit user feedback and validate hypotheses. We measure and rapidly iterate so that the end result is a high-confidence, high-value product. We foster an environment where we have the runway to experiment and learn from failure while tackling tricky challenges.
Thought diversity is a core principle for Ellevation Engineering. Our engineers feel comfortable and confident to respectfully voice their ideas and opinions, even if we disagree, because this is how we learn and arrive at the best ideas that lead us to optimal results. We value software engineering principles such as continuous integration, loose coupling, and SOA. As a small technology company, we seek individuals who are willing to be cross-functional, hands-on in multiple areas, and a technical thought leader for the organization.
We also value staying connected & aligned as a team & as a company. We do this through a variety of ways -- quick weekly sync-ups to review our quarterly OKRs; weekly Demo Fridays where we preview cool new features to the entire company; and our twice-yearly all-company offsites, where we gather the entire company for 2 days of team building and fun. We also value evolving our culture. Got some new ideas? Bring ?em on and let?s talk about incorporating them.
