Web Engineer

Web Engineer

Quizlet’s mission is to help students (and their teachers) practice and master whatever they’re learning. We provide engaging and customizable activities with content contributions from people everywhere (over 150+ million study sets and counting). We have fanatical users, significant organic growth, and a strong business model that got us to profitability before we raised venture capital money.

We're looking for Web Engineers to help us build features and ship experiments on our website, which serves over 50M visitors and 600M pageviews a month. We take advantage of modern tools like React, Flow, ES6, webpack and Prettier, and are passionate about delivering high-quality user experiences.  

The Role

  • Collaborate with Backend Engineers and Data Scientists to build features and ship experiments
  • Build automation and abstractions (such as reusable UI components) to improve development speed
  • Architect and implement data fetching and state management systems on the front-end
  • Work with Product Designers to iterate on the design and implementation of our product
  • Identify and implement performance improvements to our website
  • Participate in design, code, and architecture reviews
  • Observe user testing to understand and improve usability
  • Investigate new technologies that may be of use to the team

Example Projects:

  • Running A/B tests to improve our new user experience and making decisions based on data
  • Deploying a real-time multiplayer classroom activity that supports millions of users
  • Prototyping new content creation and learning experiences
  • Building power-user features to add to our premium offerings
  • Implementing a GraphQL client that makes it easy to fetch and mutate data on the front-end
  • Sharing our best practices through technical blog posts, meet-ups, and conferences

Qualifications and Experience

  • 3+ years of experience building rich, interactive web applications
  • Experience working with modern JavaScript libraries and tooling — for example, we use React, Flow, Redux, ES6, webpack, and Prettier
  • Passion for understanding user behavior and building beautiful user experiences
  • Experience working on large-scale consumer websites, with attention to scalability and performance concerns
  • Experience working with server-side MVC web frameworks and REST APIs
  • Excitement about the impact your work could have in the lives of students and teachers every day

Quizlet’s Team Culture

We’re extremely proud of the powerful impact our learning tools have on people’s lives across the U.S. and the world. We focus on quality, usability, and performance across all platforms. This has helped Quizlet grow organically to a top U.S. web brand with top-ten education apps on iOS and Android. We regularly visit classrooms across the Bay Area to see Quizlet’s users in action. We believe in teamwork and communication, and we believe in each other — every member has the confidence and flexibility to take a stab at new problems across functions. We love technology and we love helping people. Come join us!
