Job description

CollegeVine is seeking an Elm or PureScript developer to help engineer inviting front-end experiences that have real social impact. At CollegeVine, our mission is to level the playing field of higher education attainment, regardless of socioeconomic status. To do this, we intend to make virtual guidance services available and affordable for all through a combination of near-peer mentorship and technology. We have an unending list of interesting problems to solve: how to predict if someone will be a good mentor for a given student; how to manage tens of thousands of high-quality, ongoing human relationships simultaneously; how to ingest thousands of applications requirements and produce an optimal plan of attack—just to name a few. Our ideal candidate for this role satisfies three requirements: 1. You have proven experience in Elm or PureScript (or even Haskell, F#, or OCaml, but want to apply your talents to the front-end) and want to get even better. 2. You have a product-focused mindset; this means you prioritize business value and project delivery above academic interests related to the language. 3. You are discerning about engineering culture. Some keywords for ours are growth-oriented, genuine, self-aware, pragmatic, autonomous, mindful, and remote-friendly. Note: We may have a more junior role available in the near future, but this one is not it! If you'd like to be considered for that role when it opens up, please apply for this one and note in your cover letter that you are interested in a junior role. We will add your resume to our database for future consideration.

Life at CollegeVine


  • Medical, dental, vision insurance and 401k
  • Flexible hours with a 4-hour core
  • Goal-based environment
  • We care about mindfulness and the quality of your attention
  • Equipment/setup budget so you can tool up the way you want
