We are also proud to have won the annual Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award, placing in the top 50 of all SMB for Best Places to Work in 2021 - entirely based on the feedback of our team.

If you answered with a spirited “Yes!” to all the above, we’d love to have you join our flock! 

We’re looking for a Backend Software Engineer with deep product sense, a knack for demystifying the ambiguous, and the horsepower to turn product specs into reality.

  • Make important architectural decisions that will help shape and scale our APIs and systems (platform, personalization, community, growth, education, certifications) as our company grows
  • Bring a sense of ownership, demonstrate craftsmanship, enjoy collaboration, and have the drive to make an impact
  • Help develop & foster our engineering culture through thoughtful mentorship, knowledge sharing and demonstrative application of technical best practices
  • Design, test, and ship great code everyday

What You'll Bring


  • 3+ years of relevant software engineering experience building web applications, bonus points if at a high-growth startup
  • Strong knowledge of our core technologies: Python, Django, AWS
  • Solid understanding of software engineering best practices (coding standards, code reviews, testing, continuous integration)
  • Excitement for full ownership of projects and ability to take a project from scoping requirements through actual launch
  • Product sense and a user-orientated focus
  • Passion for education and access to economic opportunity for people from non-traditional and underrepresented backgrounds

What You'll Get


  • Getting in on the ground floor of an innovative mission-first, people-first company where you'll have the support to pursue your passions
  • Competitive salary & meaningful equity in a well-funded startup experiencing hyper-growth
  • Health and dental insurance
  • Monthly health and wellness stipend
  • Flexible, uncapped paid time off, in addition to company-wide holidays
  • Fully remote work environment
  • Fully equipped workstation

Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Flockjay


We believe diversity is strength & difference is a teacher. We know we'll do our best and most impactful work when we feel we're represented and we belong. We strive to provide the support required to create a safe, positive environment.

We're proud to actively recruit and hire talented people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

We believe organizations must build diversity, inclusion, and belonging into their DNA. Those that do so will build better products, provide better services, and be positive forces in the world.
