Lead Fullstack Engineer

| Remote
As a Lead Fullstack Engineer on Skillshare for Teams (SFT) you will help provide immersive learning to the world’s most innovative companies. In this role you will build out Skillshare’s Enterprise product which provides a business solution that will maximize the creativity, engagement, and development of workforces around the world.

What you'll do:

  • Build product! You’ll contribute to enterprise features that help our global clients easily join and engage with the platform.
  • Maintain and help manage the product roadmap by building consensus across internal teams and external clients and using your technical skills to improve prioritization and planning.
  • Communicate directly with enterprise clients about product capabilities and the implementation process. 
  • Partner with Account Managers and the Client Success team to develop and maintain client and sales supporting tools, like Salesforce integration and product customizations.
  •  Participate in daily stand-ups, weekly team meetings with SFT, sprint planning, and retrospectives with the team (we work in agile here).
  • Review code with best practices of readability, testing patterns, documentation, and performance considerations in mind.
  • Mentor your teammates and help them grow and develop their skills.
  • Work closely with other engineers, along with our product, client success, and data teams.

Why we're excited about you:

  • You have 4+ years of experience as an engineer with a proven history of working across the stack and building product at scale.
  • You’re ready to work with an existing code base (proficiency in PHP, node.js, and react or backbone is expected), but you can pick up new languages as needed.
  • You understand industry standards in architecture, code quality, testing and technical documentation.
  • You're a natural collaborator – you work seamlessly within and between teams.
  • You're self sufficient and motivated by full ownership of your work. 
  • You’re passionate about the user, and eager to help our organization grow to meet their needs.

Why you're excited about us:

  • Impact: SFT/B2B is quickly becoming a cornerstone of our business, and you’ll be at the heart of it, from the ground up.
  • Growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and take on more responsibility over time.
  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.
  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.
  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.

An Insider's view of Skillshare

What are some social events your company does?

Moving fully remote has meant changing our approach to team-bonding. We are keeping the energy up with happy hours, trading Zoom backgrounds, and, recently, our affinity group for women of color hosted company-wide trivia that kicked off with a Rihanna dance break.

Chantel

Senior Creative Producer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration is frequent and organic at Skillshare; we foster a uniquely friendly atmosphere of openness and shared purpose. Through cross-team threads, project-based meetings, comments on RFC's, pull request reviews, Q&A sessions, and, of course, simple conversations, collaboration commonly happens across a table or across time zones.

Justin

Director of Engineering

What are some things you learned at the company?

I was immediately impressed and encouraged by the creative problem solving at Skillshare. Data plays a huge part in learning about our members, determining the most popular classes, and fostering creative community. I was a student within the community long before helping build it. My favorite experience so far has been learning watercolor basics.

Zhen

Director of Business Intelligence

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a management team, we strongly believe in making ourselves accessible. This includes: 1:1s with direct reports, skip-level meetings, team-wide meetings, coffees with people across departments, and attending team events. More broadly, we apply the same foundational rule we all learned in kindergarten: treat people the way you want to be treated.

Sabrina

COO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We're in an exciting position - we have a product that we believe in and a community that believes in us. The question we face is: how can we build a platform which works for the Skillshare of today, but will scale to the needs of the Skillshare of the future? It’s not enough to keep up with growth; we must build for where our growth will take us.
