[JOB] Application Support Developer, Flocabulary

Flocabulary, a rapidly-growing web application that uses hip-hop music and interactive content to engage and teach K-12 students, is seeking an Application Support Developer to help improve our Python (Django) codebase, as well as troubleshoot and resolve issues with our technology stack. We’re a small company dedicated to the idea that a motivated student is a more successful student, and we pride ourselves on making learning tools that kids and teachers love. Flocabulary is a dynamic start-up with opportunities for growth.
We’re looking for someone with inquisitiveness and a knack for problem-solving to help us diagnose, solidify, and build on our cloud/API-centric technology stack (Amazon/Recurly/Salesforce/more). While improving existing systems will be the focus at first, opportunities to shape and implement new features will grow as you continue at Flocabulary.
As the second developer on a small team with a large userbase of over 150k registered users in our first year, this role is a chance to have instant impact on an exciting product by:
-Enhancing important areas of our application in response to user feedback as well as internal company goals
-Ensuring the stability of our processes by identifying and resolving problems
-Assisting users with technical questions and issues
-Designing and building dynamic new features that will help students learn more quickly and effectively
-Helping us achieve scale and reliability via automated testing and cloud infrastructure
-A roll-up-your-sleeves mentality in terms of tracking down and resolving issues
-Experience with one or more of the common web frameworks (Ideally Django; Rails ok.)
-Familiarity with one or more modern version control systems
-Ideally front-end (JS/JQuery) development experience
-CS degree or related field strongly preferred
-Strong communication skills with non-technical contacts
This is a full-time position located in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Salary is commensurate with experience. We offer health, dental and vision benefits.
