Intelletec has teamed up with a fast growing company that helps school districts operate efficiently and gain insight into their business processes. They’re growing like crazy and looking to bring on a Senior Engineer.


About the Role:

  • Contribute to the architecture, performance and scalability of a fast growing enterprise platform. Create and shape architecture that enables many potential futures without knowing exactly what the future is.
  • Ship critical features to provide value to our customers.
  • Provide strategies for eliminating technical debt and suggested timelines for how to prioritize it.
  • Articulate ideas and beliefs clearly to the team. Persuade, listen and guide debates to help reach a consensus.
  • Excel at getting the team to focus on the highest-impact projects. Lead delivery of major initiatives on clear timelines. Be proactive in identifying and clearing roadblocks for the team.​



  • Nurture the technical and leadership growth of other engineers.
  • Make others better through code reviews, pairing, documentation, technical guidance, and mentoring.
  • Intense curiosity and problem-solving nature — it brings you joy to chew through difficult technical problems and develop simple, clean code and architecture for complex needs.
  • Track record of building usable, scalable products (we'd love to see your portfolio or links to any projects you can share!).
  • Extensive web development experience. Ideal if you have knowledge of Rails, JavaScript, and jQuery.
  • Collaborative development style: you enjoy pair programming and learning with and from our team.
  • Ability to balance attention to detail with broader project goals and timelines.
  • Passion for building user-centric products
