Senior Full Stack Engineer at Newsela (Remote)
The Senior Fullstack Engineer for the Tooling team will write, ship, and maintain code for existing and emerging applications and tools within Newsela’s growing service ecosystem. You will develop a clear, scalable technical format and have the ability to speak to the work during code review. Reporting to the Engineering Manager, you will serve as the primary technical contact for your team and will co-write all cards representing work, making sure they are scoped appropriately and communicated clearly to all stakeholders. You will oversee and enforce coding standards that help keep code easy for the team to understand and change. You’ll also establish and enforce quality practices to minimize escaped defects and will coach team members as necessary for successful completion of the development work. You’ll also serve as a mentor to junior team members and provide regular constructive feedback. You’ll work with the team to break down sprint work in a way that delivers demonstrable value.
Why You’ll Love This Role:
As a leader on our growing Tooling team, you will have full involvement in the development cycle for a wide range of applications and features, from research and design to delivery. Engaging multiple teams and departments, you’ll be a key player in helping shape solutions for a fast-growing business. Ultimately, your work will drive meaningful enhancements to the learning and teaching experience for students and teachers across the U.S. and help improve the future of K-12 education. And because we're a technology company focused on improving the way students learn, you’ll be part of an engineering culture that values teaching, learning, and questioning.
