We are looking for a senior backend software engineer to help us reinvent the way we train, evaluate, and hire software engineers.
Our mission is to develop the most accurate and useful assessment of software engineers. We're doing this by creating a widely-accepted, comprehensive standardized exam called the CSPA. If we succeed, we will improve the average quality of software engineers, increase the supply of great software engineers -- especially from non-traditional backgrounds, and vastly improve the technical interviewing process.
You strive for engineering excellence and are dedicated to writing code that is clean, well-maintained, easy to understand, robust, and performant.
You also thrive in a fast-paced environment. You understanding the demands of the business, self-prioritizing and making deliberate tradeoffs if necessary -- pushing out new features, pruning unused ones, and improving existing features.
If you join us, you'll be a part of a lasting, positive change on our software industry, and see how we do it from the inside.

We are a seed stage startup and have a small team. The environment is casual and informal, but we work hard and effectively. Our office is in Bespoke Coworking in San Francisco, so you get to meet lots of other startups in the space.
You'll work closely with James, previously co-founder and CPO of Crunchyroll. He spends about half his time coding, and half on strategy and business development.
We recently finished Y Combinator (S18) and are backed by top angels and seed VC firms.
