Software Developer

Job description

At LessonUp, our main driver to start the day is our mission. We want to make smiles appear on the faces of over 1 million teachers in the world. Our platform will make this happen by being an easy to go to place to make interactive, present-day classes to share with the kids. Together, the teachers and the LessonUp team have already made thousands of classes, video’s, images and assignments to work with. In class, or remote! An easy and fun way to teach - just like it should be.

The amount of users is growing - we’ve reached 150k users some time ago - and we always want to make the platform better and more scalable. That’s why we are expanding the team and are looking for a Software Developer.

The fun of working at LessonUp
As a developer, you will find some great things at LessonUp. Apart from a mission driven team that is ready to make a change, you will work on something that is being used on a daily basis by thousands of teachers. We also highly value your personal development. Apart from the learning curve you will get from working in our team and amongst other high quality professionals, we will set-up a personal development plan and will offer your time and education, based on your personal learning goals.

LessonUp works on a Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud.
We use > Node.js      > React           > Firebase           > Javascript

Your skills

> You work and think on an Higher Professional Education level;
> You have experience in working with either our front- or backend stack;
> You thrive in a fast-paced environment;
> Your creativity and passion are visible in your work.

We have different, very interesting, technical challenges that we are facing. Some are more back-end focused, others more front-end focused. But we can also be an interesting match if you are looking to deep dive into more DevOps related subjects, or for instance Site Reliability Engineering. We grew from 3 to 10 developers in 6 months, so we have a lot of talented colleagues and you can take the space you need to do different kind of projects which are interesting to you. Just let us know what you like and what your talents are!

Practical stuff:
You currently already live and work in The Netherlands and your English is at least on a C1 level.

What we offer you
+ An interesting and competitive salary and if needed, a VISA sponsorship
+ A 32, 36 of 40 hours work week - whatever fits you best!
+ The opportunity to buy your own shares in the company.
+ Good gear to work with - the newest macbook and the accessories you like.

+ Your own personal development plan: spend a couple of hours a week on your personal growth goals.
+ Retirement savings with Brand New Day
+ A great (easy to reach) place to work and flexibility to work remote.
+ Endless growth opportunities - the team is still small, which means a lot is possible!
+ When in the office: a great lunch, free drinks & snacks.
+ When crazy times get back to normal: exclusive parties. For now we will have some remote drinks using MiBo.
