Schoolytics is using data and analytics to improve student outcomes. Our modern data platform enables schools to effortlessly aggregate, analyze, and interpret data across disparate data sources, connecting the dots to create holistic views of student learning.

Schoolytics is seeking candidates who are excited about building a petabyte scale data platform from the ground up using cutting edge technologies, hosted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) leveraging Docker, Kubernetes, App Engine, and MongoDB. Our developers and engineers work together to design, implement, and continuously deploy features; continually look for the next problem to solve; and seek to constantly improve existing systems. The platform you will build will be used to help teachers monitor student engagement, school administrators direct resources towards students with the most need for assistance, and assess effectiveness of learning materials and methods. We are seeking to fill Back End Software Engineer, Full Stack Developer, and Web Developer positions that are fully remote.

As a Python Developer, you will be building the components of our system that securely connect the front end interface with the back end processing, improving system performance, assisting with data acquisition, and collaborating with teammates to drive modularization and stability across the entire architecture.

Python Developers will work with product managers to refine and evolve our middleware and backend Python codebase that enhance student-teacher communication and relationships, as well as empowering all school staff to better support students through remote learning through COVID and beyond.
