Full Stack / Lead Engineer

About Stride

Stride is a career discovery app that empowers students to reach their full potential.

Nobody understands how students make decisions about their future, which makes matching them with the right opportunities a complex global problem. Everyone agrees that social influences play a key role in the paths students choose.

Stride connects students with real role models to inspire better choices. We use machine learning technology to understand each student’s career calling, identify the skills they’ll need to be successful and the best steps to gain valuable experience.

What’s the opportunity?

Stride is in a really exciting place. We’re growing a tight-knit, ambitious and innovative team. We’re more than just coders – we’re opinionated, creative, learn-in-the-trenches engineers. You’ll have the opportunity to impact on the success of every student trying to find their way in the world – building a solution with global reach. As a founding member of Stride’s engineering team, you’ll have the opportunity to pave your own career path.

What will I be doing?

Stride engineers:

  • Positively impact our technical architecture and strategy.
  • Work fast to solve complex problems collaboratively.
  • Ship code to production when it’s ready, not when some delivery window opens.
  • Own your solutions and own the feedback. Great work is always recognised. Failure is celebrated for the positive lessons learned.
  • Care deeply about the impact you’re making for our users.
  • Obsess about the best user experience and empathise with our user’s journey.
  • Take pride in bringing your best to each user.

What skills do I need?

  • Ruby on Rails
