Software Engineer

Course Hero is looking for a software engineer who can hit the ground running.

Our team releases code every day to millions of people, so we're looking for someone who can take on challenges, build new features, and iterate quickly. Each engineer has a role in building Course Hero's architecture and will have the opportunity to touch all parts of the stack. Our projects are big -- terabytes of data and customers around the world -- but our team is small, so you’ll see projects from start to finish, working closely with product managers and designers to ensure successful results.

Our company culture is very open, flat, and transparent. We succeed and learn together. Our office is very comfortable, has a lot of natural light, and great amenities like a gym and walking trails onsite. We’ve tried hard to make this a pleasant and inspiring place to do creative work.

Most importantly, we seek to hire individuals whose personality, integrity and passion for our business make our team better as a whole. We’re growing fast, profitable (yes, it’s true!), and looking for another core team member to push us toward the future.

We're looking for:
  • Ability to formulate strong, articulate opinions on product design and engineering issues with solutions oriented mentality
  • Deep sense of personal product ownership and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Commitment to developing technical and soft skills with enthusiasm for approaches other than your own
  • Real-world experience using SQL and backend web development (PHP, MySQL, jQuery, Angular, Susy, Sass)
  • Appreciation for statistical analysis and the power of data-driven decisions
We're excited by (nice to have, but not required):
  • Natural language processing skills
  • Familiarity using or developing a document categorization system (e.g. Naïve Bayes classifier, Latent Semantic Indexing)
  • Mobile development experience
  • 2-4 years work experience
We provide:
  • Competitive salary & stock option packages
  • Full Health Benefits
  • Regularly planned team events and outings
  • Free Friday lunches & endless snack supply
  • A dynamic and collaborative work environment with on-site amenities that include a day spa, full-service cafeteria, 3 mile nature walk trail and free membership to a 7,500 sq. ft. fitness center

This position is located in Redwood City, California.
