Senior Software Engineer (Chicago Loop)
We’re hiring senior engineers, who are passionate about technology and education, to help build new features into our existing products (Canvas, Bridge, and Arc). Our product team doesn't throw specs over some imaginary wall to engineering, and engineering doesn't throw code over some imaginary wall to QA. We all collaborate together. We highly value innovation, so much so that we have quarterly Hackweeks.
Most of our work is open source, even our primary product (Canvas). Check us out on Github: www.github.com/instructure.
Join us at our downtown Chicago office. Address: 1 Prudential Plaza, 130 E. Randolph St. Suite 1800, Chicago, IL 60601
