Role Overview

As a Backend Engineer at LiveSchool, you will contribute to the services and APIs that power real-time school culture reporting and dashboards for K12 schools across the US. Your code will turn tens of millions of “behavior points” per month into actionable insights about students, teachers, schools, and more. You will leverage numerous AWS technologies to make this data as real-time and engaging as possible for users. Last but not least, you will join a committed team working to make school more engaging, fun, and fair for students everywhere!

Required Skills

We are looking for an engineer with strong experience using Amazon Web Services, building RESTish and socket based APIs using Node.js and working on large-scale database systems that handle high user concurrency. You must be a critical thinker, effective communicator, and take pride in your work. CS/MIS degree or equivalent preferred.
