February 13, 2013

At Skillshare, we're re-building education from the ground up.

Nothing is more important to us than our culture. We're a small team solving real-world problems. We ship fast, iterate, and have fun daily. In order to achieve our vision, we believe in close collaboration across the entire team, where everyone is responsible for shaping the product, from the sketchbook to deployment.

As an Engineer joining the product family, you're a creative problem-solver who takes initiative to make things happen. You take pride in upholding the UI, maintaining standards and writing maintainable code. You're passionate about what you do, you love side-projects, and are searching for an opportunity where you have real-world impact from day one.

Primary responsibilities:

  • Bringing the biggest features of Skillshare to life.
  • Architecting and maintaining a scalable frontend of Skillshare.
  • Ensuring our products meet web standards and function across all browsers and devices.
  • Above all; upholding the experience, and driving product improvements that hit our most ambitious goals.


  • Strong knowledge of CSS(3), HTML(5) and web standards.
  • Familiarity with high-performance and scalable JavaScript.
  • Experience with version control (e.g. Git).
  • Excellent attention to detail (and we mean it).
  • A passion to build something that will change the world.


  • Experience with Backbone, Sass and similar libraries.
