Careers

Technology is disrupting higher education. We believe universities can benefit from this if it's done right. Supporting basic education and computer science research is core to what we do. We also believe that universities should be in control of how this space evolves, and that an open-source platform is the best way to do that.

Our engineering team is small and productive. We like being close to our customers (faculty, staff, students) since that motivates the right kind of innovation. We run a lightweight, mostly-Agile development process with quick daily standups, group planning, and frequent demos. We work on the Campus do Mar Campus.

What we work on is mostly driven by our customers, but we also commit to the core edX platform repo.
