CourseHorse is seeking an extremely talented senior engineer to help own the full software lifecycle including planning, implementation and deployment. Our team is currently three engineers strong (1 Sr. Engineer, 2 Junior Engineers). As a critical member of our small team, you will tackle the complex challenges of scaling architecture while also defining development methodologies and best practices. Our ideal candidate loves to code and build technology that improves people's lives.

About Us:
CourseHorse is the first marketplace that helps people discover & enroll in trusted local classes, ranging from casual programs like cooking & art, to professional courses like finance and programming. We believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit, and our goal is simple: to make that pursuit easier.

We're one of Forbes' Top 100 Promising Companies in America, we work with almost 1,000 class providers offering 40,000 classes, and we've grown revenue 700% in the last year. We've just raised an additional round of capital in order to attach rocket-boosters to this Horse, and we're seeking passionate, talented team members to get in on the ground floor & help steer us to the stars.

How to know if CourseHorse is a good fit:
• You’re looking for more than just a job – you have a desire to help build something real
• You want to get in at the beginning, build from the ground up, and have ownership over what you produce
• You have an interest and appreciation for education and active lifestyles, and a desire to help people connect with both
• You appreciate autonomy – we arm you with the knowledge, the skillset and support system, but you synthesize everything yourself to make it work
• You’re focused on building a diverse set of skillsets that will help you throughout the rest of your career – as an education company, team member development is priority #1
• You like fun, fast paced, (sometimes fabulously witty) environments, and want to work in downtown NYC
• You want to be friends with the people you work with
