What is Edlyft?  

Edlyft is a rapidly growing, ventured backed Edtech startup on a mission to connect students to in-demand jobs they'll love. We believe everyone deserves access to economic opportunity and has the ability to learn in-demand skills with the right support. Our platform helps college students succeed in their CS classes through personalized tools for navigating CS.

Featured in Forbes, Business Insider, TechCrunch, EdSurge and Y Combinator, we’ve built a support program and platform that will close the massive tech talent gap and increase access to in-demand fields.

The Position

You will work directly with the CTO (ex-Google SWE & Bain Consultant) to build out a series of tools for our web app. You should be comfortable working on both our frontend stack (React) and in our backend (Node / Express). It is important that you also have strong product sense, and can guide the team in making implementation recommendations and decisions based on what will be best for our users.

What You’ll Be Working On:

  • Building out a variety of tools to help our computer science student users better manage their time.
  • You'll work in React / Typescript on the frontend and Node on the backend

Your Immediate Impact

  • 1 month → Bringing an MVP product to launch to hundreds of students in January
  • 3 months → Increased ownership and scope as you help the team launch a larger set of features, iterating quickly on the product alongside our users. We'll release the product to thousands in your first three months.

As a skilled engineer on a small team, you'll importantly have a lot of impact on the structure of the core product itself (i.e. core infrastructure, component library, etc.).

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 3-5+ years full-stack dev experience, and really strong React development fundamentals
  • Strong design eye / ability to get close to pixel perfect on the frontend
  • 3+ years experience with Node.js
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • A desire to learn, grow, and move quickly
