REMOTE Software Engineer I | The Profession |
The Art of Education University (AOEU) is growing our Software Engineering team and we’re looking for software engineers interested in building the next generation of our educational SaaS products and systems.
AOEU has developed a home-grown suite of technology solutions to support our unique value proposition, of serving the educational and teaching needs of art teachers across their entire careers. We have extended our technology stack to its boundaries and are ready to move beyond to new more scalable frameworks that will better support our growth trajectory in the years to come.
We believe products should be so simple to use and beautiful in their design, that they speak for themselves in a sales demo. Our products should sell themselves in any context, B2B, B2C and should be valued based on the measurable, positive outcomes they create for our customers and end users. We are wary of feature creep but always seek continual improvement.
Software Engineering | What We Believe |
Software Engineering supports AOEU and its mission by making others’ lives and jobs easier through software.
Software should be a tool that allows others to reach their goals more efficiently and effectively. It should be thoughtfully designed, accessible, unobtrusive, and opinionated for the purpose it serves. We work with the Product Team and Stakeholders to accomplish this result.
Software is a “living” entity that is continually growing and changing. Our team follows iterative development cycles in order To make the right changes at the right time.
We are an open-source mindset team. Just as we use open-source software, we also contribute to the community.
We believe that it isn’t the code that makes our team successful, how we work and fit together is.
