Circles is an EdTech company building a social learning platform. We’re finishing up alpha testing and need your help as we move into beta. Our platform is built on a mix of new and old cloud and video technology ranging from Ruby to Erlang and the Amazon Cloud.
Skills that we’d like to see:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Front end, or full stack (left stack is a bonus)
  • Erlang
  • SQL & NoSQL
  • Haskell, oCaml, Scheme (We don’t use them yet, but if you have, you’re probably the sort of person we’re looking for)
  • Amazon AWS, DynamoDB

The more lines you check, the more we’re going to like you. And if you are passionate about your work and how it can impact the future of learning, we should talk. Have you worked on your own personal software development projects or contributed to other open source projects? Show us samples of your code and be prepared to describe the challenges you faced and how you tackled them.

This position will start freelance and most likely be remote. (We’re based in Brooklyn, NY.) If we enjoy working together, we’d like to hire you full time later on. It might be part-time currently, but it won’t be casual. We need someone who is engaged and ready to help us reach beta.
