Our library of over 40 openly-licensed books and our research-backed homework system have increased student engagement and helped save students over one billion dollars.
OpenStax’s research team is seeking a creative and passionate engineer with strong full-stack development skills, an ability to work on diverse projects independently, and future leadership potential to fill its software engineer III position.
This engineer will develop apps and services for our millions of users to solve research challenges both within OpenStax and from researchers at Rice University and partner institutions. Over time, the successful candidate will grow their team and lead other engineers.
While independently driving technical decisions within the research team, the software engineer III will also benefit from OpenStax’s mature engineering organization, which includes 30 engineers, monthly developer-led conferences, significant cloud and infrastructure-as-code expertise, a focus on well-tested software and CI/CD, and opportunities for professional development.
