Senior Software Engineer

San Francisco, CA

Literably is a fast-growing education technology company that provides early literacy assessment software to elementary schools. Using our product, K-5 students can read out loud into a mobile device, generating 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 600 schools, and among our customers are several of America's largest school districts, including Orange County Public Schools and Spokane Public Schools.

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. As an early engineer, you will play a leading role in both defining the technical roadmap and scaling the system to handle our ongoing massive user growth. We work with 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.
