You will report to the department’s project manager for code reviews and progress reports.

We’re a small team, but we think you’ll be surprised to see the types of projects we complete in-house rather than using “off the shelf” software.

  • Translate requirements into fully formed plans.

  • Communicate ideas and discuss your plans at sprint planning meetings to ensure the team understands your objectives and to inform your approach to the final form of the application and its code.

  • Review the plans and code produced by other talented engineers. Offer guidance to improve our results.

  • Engineer object-oriented MVC-style components.

  • Utilize JavaScript (ES6), PHP 7, HTML (Handlebars), and CSS (Sass/SCSS) to translate mockups and documentation into fully functional features.

  • Write solid, standards-compliant code while recognizing performance, scalability, and security.

  • Study the business and its products so you can be confident that your work will serve us well.

What You Need to Know

  • ES6: Expert-level understanding of modern, class-based JavaScript. Experience with React or Angular is not applicable to this project.

  • PHP: Expert-level understanding of object-oriented PHP in a custom-developed MVC framework.

  • Sass, Less, or CSS: Expert-level understanding of responsive, cross-browser styling for an application where visual fidelity is critical. Experience with Bootstrap is not applicable to this project.

  • Exceptional planning, organization, and documentation skills.

  • Excellent communication skills with a willingness to ask questions and work with the team — we love helping each other achieve the team’s goals.

Subject to whatever social distancing/public health requirements are in place, people that want to work in the Bellevue office on a regular and frequent basis will be able to do so. However, if people want to work remote permanently and come into the office less frequently, that will be an option too.

If this is something of interest, please do ask about it during your interview. In summary, whilst our preference is for people to be in our Bellevue office when they can, permanent WFH is an option too.

They are currently trying to accomplish that mission by connecting new learners with content and encouraging them to sign up so we can provide personalization and better studying experiences when they come back.

And the team wants to personalize the learning journey for every Quizlet learner and to make learning more fun. Engineers in this team would also like to harness the power of the community to make studying better.

Ads and Partners SF

The Ads and Partners team has two objectives. The Ads objective is to achieve the highest ads revenue while maintaining or enhancing user experience. This is achieved by moving towards higher-value quality ads product, launching innovative offerings of Ad products in EdTech, and creating a unique inventory for Quizlet. The Partners' objective is to help top tier educational publishers provide their students with integrated digital study tools so we can engineer a holistic experience for the learners.

Agora Denver

If you get it right, it's career-altering. The team brings content from trusted vendors like Kaplan, Pearson and Elsevier to help studiers. The effort just got going, and it's a bit like a startup within a startup.

Pod Infrastructure SF

The mission of the Pod Infrastructure team (also known as team Octo) is to power larger, user-facing functionality that helps scale the company. This means cleaning up old code, migrating to new APIs, and fixing underlying issues that empower the Pods to build features more easily and at scale. When possible, team Octo will pull functionality out of Quizlet and into new services. They help all parts of the organization including Pods, People Ops, Marketing, User Ops, and Engineering.

Subscriptions- Innovation SF

The team's mission is to deliver excellence to our subscribers through premium features that target their needs to succeed. Some of the features we’ve built are: OCR to efficiently create content from a picture of printed materials, offline access, rich text to make key points more memorable, and customized Quizlet Live for our teachers.

They enable safe deploys with strong type checking (Flow + TypeScript), comprehensive test coverage (Jest) and full integration testing (Cypress).

Content Services SF

Quizlet manages many kinds of content, and more of it every moment, to fulfill our mission of helping people around the world learn. The Content Services team identifies the parts of our system that are bumping up against the most intransigent data-scalability challenges and builds solutions that give us the breathing room to continue scaling those areas by at least tenfold. This typically involves migrating data from MySQL to other database systems, such as Google Cloud Spanner. It also involves innovating in the way we structure our applications: moving toward a service-oriented architecture that allows us to choose the right tools for each job, manage and scale services independently, and make our system more resilient. Nowadays this work features Kotlin, Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform, and it requires keeping up to date on the technology landscape for global-scale persistent data stores.
