An education technology focussed start-up that is revolutionizing the manner in which students access the world through words is eager to add a lead software engineer to their New York City Team.

In short, they aim to boost students' reading engagement across all levels by partnering the world's most prominent media sources and using technology to adapt those materials for varied reading levels or standards through their advanced analytics platform. Although they were founded in the past 6 years, they are now in a large majority of schools across the US, with millions of users (students and teachers, alike!).

This year, the Newsela engineering team is focused on enhancing the existing platform for maximum efficacy as well as developing the analytics tools to aid users in achieving their reading potential. Technically speaking they have a complex stack (Python, Django, JavaScript) and engineers tend to work from infrastructure to UI.

If this sounds of interest, do not hesistate to apply!
