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, you'll be joining a fast-paced engineering team that identify and solve problems from conception to deployment daily. The product we build supports the fast-growing Skillshare community at large, at scale and you'll be leading its evolution into the world.

Primary responsibilities:

  • Identifying and solving the biggest problems in education through doing what you love.
  • Building a high-performance product to support a fast-growing community of curious teachers and learners.
  • Back-end development of every corner of Skillshare using PHP, SQL, and other tools.
  • Taking ownership of projects to drive product improvements that will change the world.


  • Strong knowledge of at least one back-end web technology, best practices and methodologies.
  • Experience with version control (e.g. Git).
  • Excellent attention to detail (and we mean it).
  • Interest in social good or education.
