Web Engineer, Monetization

Web Engineer, Monetization

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 200 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.

As a Web Engineer focusing on Monetization, you will ship features that will grow Quizlet's revenue. You'll work on all three pillars of our monetization strategy: subscription products, premium content, and advertising. As part of your work, you'll get hands-on experience making decisions based on data, integrating payment systems and advertising solutions, as well as building foundational systems that will drive revenue growth.

  • Work with Product Designers to iterate on the design and implementation of our product
  • 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:

  • Building a Verified Content program allowing publishers to create official study materials on Quizlet
  • Developing a promotions engine that works on multiple platforms and across multiple channels (in-app, emails, notifications)
  • Experimenting with a rewards program to positively influence study behavior
  • Building new power-user features (activities and organizational tools) to add to our premium subscription offerings
  • Sharing our best practices through technical blog posts, meet-ups, and conferences

Qualifications and Experience

  • 2+ years of experience building rich, interactive web applications
  • Experience working with modern JavaScript libraries and tooling — for example, we use React, Redux, Flow, 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

  • Experience working with payment systems and advertising solutions
