We operate a free online reading and writing program, www.commonlit.org, that is used by millions of teachers and students.
About the Role
CommonLit's mission is to improve the educational and economic outcomes of students through better literacy and critical thinking skills. Our application supports millions of students in the United States and around the world with a rigorous, high-interest literacy curriculum in English and Spanish.
Our small (nine-member) engineering team works in a collaborative, high-trust environment where we ship high-quality software to power CommonLit's curriculum and to assist teachers in assessing their students growth. As a Senior Engineer you'll lead significant technical projects, contribute your own code, review teammates' work, and advance CommonLit's mission.
