Job Description

OVERVIEW 
As a Software Engineer, you will build technology to help high-potential candidates showcase and develop the skills needed to get family-supporting, middle skill careers.

ABOUT US

The American middle class is shrinking and economic mobility is historically low. Simultaneously, there are millions of open "middle skill" jobs that employers struggle to fill – helping companies hire candidates for these roles is one of the best ways to reverse this trend and increase the middle class.

We help companies hire candidates for stable, family-supporting careers, starting with positions in sales. We do this by finding and evaluating candidates based on their competencies, not their credentials or pedigree (only 30% of Americans have a college degree, but 60% of employers require it for middle skill roles). By empowering candidates to prove their potential, we allow employers hire better people faster, and gives candidates a fair shot at the careers they desire and deserve.

We are based in SOMA and bootstrapped to profitability with a few great early customers before raising a $3.8MM seed round from top investors.

ABOUT THE ROLE 
As a Software Engineer, you will work directly with the CEO and Head of Engineering to build the products, systems and team to help companies hire for in-demand middle skill roles.

- Short-term: Create assessment platform to evaluate candidate’s cognitive, non-cognitive and job-specific skills. 
- Medium-term: Develop last-mile training system (either using 3rd party system or built in-house) to provide candidates targeted microcourses connected to employer demands. 
- Long-term: Build system to match candidates to companies based on experience, skills, and interests.
