TL;DRWe’re hiring for a smart, creative software engineer who loves deeply understanding new conceptsand sharing their knowledge with others.
Skiller Whale’s mission is to change what people are capable of. We’ve found the most effective way to accomplish this is through challenging, realistic exercises that can be explored and tackled in our interactive teaching model. The majority of developers we teach give overall satisfaction ratings of 5/5, and we’re committed to keeping our high levels of user love. This requires the development of demo apps and code examples that get to the heart of a topic, challenge learners, and demonstrate interesting edge cases. To create these, we need to quickly learn, deeply understand, and clearly demonstrate new concepts and technologies.
That’s where this role comes in. We’re looking for a software engineer to join us and help with extending and enhancing the learning that Skiller Whale provides.
Because we’re still young and scrappy (5 people at the moment), you would have a huge role to play in shaping Skiller Whale as a company.
What you can expect to work on
Designing good teaching requires a wide range of skills. As well being able to quickly understand new things, you’ll have to combine creativity with a well structured way of thinking, and the ability to clearly communicate your ideas. You don’t need to have a background in teaching or pedagogy, but you will need to be interested in it, and have the desire to learn and improve our methods.
