From its earliest days, Instructure has developed and deployed superior, easy-to-use software and we're about to do it again. In our continued fight against shoddy software, we're preparing to develop a new product and need the best to help us do it. If you're passionate about effective education that allows people to make new discoveries, share knowledge, and do big things then we should talk.  
We're hiring Senior Software Engineers in Salt Lake City who are passionate about technology and education to build a new, next generation product for employees who want to build better companies.
What's it like to work at Instructure? Our product team doesn't throw spec documents over an imaginary wall only to have engineering build something and throw it over another wall to QA. Our teams are collaborative — we sit together, brainstorm together, and build together because we believe that's the only way to make superior software. We're committed to innovation — so much so, in fact, that we hold quarterly hack weeks to let individuals and teams build pet projects and aim for the fences with radical new ideas.
This is a Full Stack position, Front End experience is required.

What We Do:

  • We're building innovative web applications. RESTful, easy to consume APIs and single-page, rich JS applications are our bread and butter.
  • Our polyglot team has interest in multiple JVM languages and a strong preference for simple, elegant solutions to customer needs.
  • We are cloud native: that means building fault-tolerant, highly available applications that can scale up to meet load and scale down to watch those Benjamins.
  • What we look for:

  • Breadth of experience across languages and frameworks.
  • Deep knowledge of a JVM language or Javascript, and the desire to work in JVM languages and React.
  • Experience with React is preferred.
  • Experience with new web frameworks like Dropwizard, Spring Boot, or Play is a plus.
  • A history of unit and other automated testing to ensure application quality.
  • Capable communicators passionate about product development and user experience.
  • Experience mentoring and developing other engineers.
  • Autodidacts who love continual learning and exploration.
  • Engineering leaders who care about coding standards and writing lean, maintainable software.
