Backend Software Engineer

Anywhere in the World

Headquarters: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States

About the Opportunity

MasteryPrep is assembling an onshore development team to work exclusively on "greenfield" initiatives. We are looking for talented software engineers to help us level the playing field in education by building the most effective test preparation available, bar none. We believe that the best way to build this experience is by creating a diverse team of people from different backgrounds, races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and experiences. The team we are building must be aligned to our core values of:

  • Go pro. Or go home. Get better than the best.
  • Do right. Period.
  • Make it happen. Excuses never built anything.
  • Make it awesome. There is no equality without quality.
  • Customers are forever. This company is for them.


About the Role

As a Backend Software Engineer, you will be responsible for—but not limited to—architecture, implementation, testing, and partnering with our product, operations, and support teams. Building great products is a highly collaborative effort, so it's essential that you are a team player with solid communication skills.

Success criteria:

  • You work collaboratively and respectfully with cross-functional teams to design cutting edge education products that change the world
  • You propose innovative and creative ideas to solve tough engineering challenges that scale
  • You raise the bar on quality, testing, and performance to ensure the product reliably performs
  • You help identify and implement best practices and standards throughout the code and our processes
  • You own quality issues and failures and work to actively resolve them with a sense of urgency
  • You constantly strive to build an inclusive, supportive, and positive work environment
  • Security is a first-class concern for you—DevSecOps isn't an afterthought

What you will be building

While support and maintenance for existing platforms may be required from time to time, this role will primarily focus on our "greenfield" initiatives. MasteryPrep is wholly committed to building cutting-edge technology solutions to level the playing field for education. Our platform has to scale to support interactions in hundreds of live classrooms with up to 250+ students in a single class. This is not a job for the faint of heart. However, if projects and challenges of this scale excite you, then you may be the right fit for the role.

We look forward to hearing from you!
