There is this magical recent invention called the "video game." It's really fun. Kids spend hours playing these things. Really! Then there's this terribly boring historical artifact called "the textbook" which hasn't been updated since Prussia was still a thing. It's still the way teachers cram knowledge into little kids. Barbaric. We're combining the two to get those kiddos learning better. We ran a real academic study with the good folks at Vanderbilt to see if our prototype would work. It did. Awesomely. We've assembled the equivalent of the A-Team to turn this into a billion dollar company.
We're tired of building $50 and $60 million dollar companies (that's what our last two companies we started turned into*).
Company is funded.
Software development with React, Postgres, and AWS is underway and rolling. One problem: We have a whole lot of operations, integration, automation, and “DevOps” work that needs an owner.
Help us solve this problem and you get a competitive salary (100K+) and a bunch of equity. Also, we get to revolutionize education together.
You will take ownership of our fledgling AWS DevOps infrastructure, building out a world-class CI/CD system; implementing monitoring and alerting; adding test automation; configuring and integrating with third-party services; and helping architect our system for performance, scale, and robustness. You should be comfortable with a dynamic start-up environment and familiar with Agile process. You will be the principal implementer, so your hands-on skills must be current.
