The DeansList Team is passionate about improving education by giving great schools and teachers the tools to be successful.

We didn't (all) get straight As but we have the "21st century skills" and character traits necessary to succeed.

We're a growing team based in Soho, NYC. We offer competitive salary, equity and benefits packages. Other perks include seeing students improve and big THANK YOUs from great teachers.

Software Development
Full-Stack Engineer
New York

We're looking for an innovative creative problem solver to help us build new features for all of the great schools we work with. We're a team of experienced generalists who believe in elegant design from the data model to front-end interfaces. Our platform is built on robust, homemade frameworks that make it easy to plug-in new features seamlessly.

Projects will range from solving needs for individual clients — like building custom student report cards, to tackling large-scale new features from start to finish. Candidates should have familiarity with developing applications on a similar front/back-end stacks and be comfortable switching back and forth as needed.

Great candidates should:

  • be experienced with object-oriented PHP in large-scale applications, and should share our dedication to writing it in an elegant, scalable way
  • have advanced experience building user interfaces with HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • have some experience with relational databases like MySQL
  • be familiar developing applications on a similar front and back-end stack (MySQL/PHP/JavaScript) with minimal additional frameworks
  • have excellent skills working with end-users — this means understanding a user's (teacher/school admin) specific needs and an ability to translate them into smart feature development plans
  • enjoy a fast-paced environment where you're always multi‐tasking
  • have experience working on an agile software development team and with tools like git
  • most important: have an interest in improving education, empathy for teachers, and a desire to create great tools that will help schools be more effective
