The Relay Graduate School of Education (Relay GSE) is a ground-breaking graduate school with an innovative master’s degree program designed specifically to respond to today’s urgent demand for effective and successful teachers. As Relay GSE expands and matures, we continue to improve our program through targeted online learning and explore how to integrate the best innovations across education technology. Through improvements in software and technology, Relay GSE will be able to serve a broader audience of teachers and thus have a greater impact on our public schools and our children.
I am currently searching for a Senior Developer, who will lead, scale, and mature our software architecture and build applications used by thousands of teachers across the country to better prepare them to serve hundreds of thousands of children. Relay GSE has a few applications in place that will serve as basic building blocks. You will improve these applications to reflect best practices in software, build an API framework to shape a software ecosystem at Relay GSE, and integrate these applications to create a seamless, intuitive user experience. You will also lead the creation of wholly new applications as Relay GSE’s software needs mature. In doing so, you will be a pioneer and trailblazer in the rapidly maturing educational technology space.
• Strong user experience intuition and experience working with PHP and MySQL using server-side MVC frameworks (e.g. Symfony) – additional experience with client-side frameworks (e.g. jQuery, Blueprint, Cappuccino, SproutCore) is a plus
• Experience with the LAMP stack, ideally in a virtualized environment – additional experience with Amazon Web Services (i.e. EC2, RDS, Elastic Beanstalk, S3, CloudFront) is a plus
