Full Stack Software Engineer

San Francisco, CA, United States - Full Time

As an education startup ready to explode, CredEd is looking for our next full-stack software engineer to join in our growth. We are actively looking to bring on the top 1% of all humans to join this team.

For this crucial role in CredEd’s growth we have an “unusual” application. Because of the importance of this role, we are extremely selective, and only accept the best – those dedicated to the mission, willing to expand their comfort zone and grow with the company.

  • About the Position

    We currently have two position available, yet are only making one available for now. Not because we can’t fill two but because we set the bar high. When CredEd was started we decided we were only going to work with A+ players, we believe the CredEd mission is too important to settle for anything less.

  • A+ Players

    And here is the thing: A+ players are hard to find AND they can easily be making more money somewhere else because they are hard workers because they dedicate themselves to the company, the mission, and achieving results all while continuously learning, improving, and growing.

    • A+ players want the best for the company and expect the best from themselves.
    • A+ players want to be able to learn, advance, and grow with their company.
    • A+ players take ownership in their work and ownership of being a part of the company.
    • A+ players are team players while holding themselves responsible for their part while picking up other players on the team when they need a hand.
    • A+ players know they are joining a team on a mission. They want to improve as an individual so that they can improve the team as a whole.

    These are the people CredEd wants on our team.
