We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Discover team in launching an exciting new business initiative at Teachable!

Teachable is best known for its platform that allows Creators to monetize their knowledge while owning their brand, customer relationship, and revenue stream. In order to supplement our core offering we are experimenting with ways to further help our Creators to generate more demand. Last year we created the Discover by Teachable prototype to help validate that a successful product could be built around this concept and are now focused on launching and iterating on a fully productized application to extend the ways in which we can create demand for Creators.

The ideal candidate will have expertise in modern frontend web technologies and architectural approaches, and translate that expertise into production code. They will leverage prior experience and learnings to make informed technical tradeoffs and iterate quickly. While this position is primarily a frontend position, as a member of a small, flexible team the candidate should be willing and able to traverse up and down the stack as necessary to make forward progress.

As a member of this team you will be expected to have a scrappy and entrepreneurial mindset with a strong sense of ownership and the ability to collaborate seamlessly with other like-minded individuals. You will be selecting technologies and building systems that will form the foundation of a new product with high business potential, and the decisions that you make together with your teammates will have an enormous impact on the future of the product.

This position will report directly to the General Manager of Discover

Responsibilities

  • Build features and functionality for a user-facing product that is expected to scale quickly
  • Contribute heavily to the evolution of a new, foundational infrastructure
  • Use qualitative and quantitative data to inform decision making
  • Collaborate effectively with a small team to iterate quickly, apply learnings, and deliver increasing amounts of customer value incrementally
  • Work closely alongside Product Design to develop new and innovative user experiences
  • Sync with engineering and other teams in the flagship Teachable product to leverage knowledge and shared systems when necessary, while keeping the Discover product and systems as decoupled from Teachable as possible

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of professional experience developing responsive web applications
  • Well-versed in modern frontend frameworks and best practices
  • Robust knowledge of web application performance, accessibility considerations, and SEO best practices
  • Ability to work proficiently on the backend; doesn’t need to be an expert but should be able to tackle smaller tasks and unblock themselves when appropriate
  • Comfortable making decisions in ambiguous situations with changing or unknown requirements
  • Strong communicator who knows when to streamline and when to broadcast to a wider audience
  • Prior experience in a small startup or incubator environment, especially where they have seen the effects of their decisions with increasing scale
  • Experience with B2C or affiliate marketplaces is a plus

An Insider's view of Teachable

What are some social events your company does?

At the end of every summer we host a company retreat in upstate New York. It's a multi-day event with color war style games and is a great way to build connections across the company and get to know people outside of the office.
