About Pluralsight

Pluralsight proudly creates the creators of tomorrow: the people who develop the technology that lifts the human condition. We do this through the tech industry's leading learning platform for developers, IT, and creative professionals. Our team of 1500+ innovators are serving over 7 million users in 150+ countries to conquer the tech skills gap.

 

The Opportunity 

 

We are hiring an experienced Software Engineer to help with the mission of activating learners in the Pluralsight platform and driving long term engagement, commonly referred to as Onboarding.  You will own the journey of the Pluralsight learner beginning at account creation and ending when they are exhibiting successful, continuous learning behaviors in the platform. 

 

The Onboarding experience is the first thing a user sees after signing up for Pluralsight. The Onboarding team will work closely with our Home team to upgrade and refine this experience. A strong Onboarding experience will help learners get up and running faster with our platform and enable them to accomplish their goals quicker. This is a highly collaborative role, where you will work with technical colleagues across the organization to drive important outcomes for learners around the world. 

 

As a software engineer on the Onboarding team, you will help shape our technical direction on how we make a user’s first initial visits intuitive, informative, and insightful. We are always looking to better understand our customers and build features that motivate them to learn the latest technologies. You will collaborate with a bright, diverse team that is passionate about learning and helping our learners and customers reach their learning goals by crafting scalable, secure software that delights our users.

 

 You’d be a great fit if you have:

  • Experience building software with Node, React and Postgres

  • Experience designing, building, or supporting self-service platforms

  • Experience designing, building, or supporting high performance distributed systems 

  • Experience with continuous integration and continuous delivery platforms (Gitlab / Teamcity)

  • Experience working on and/or a demonstrable understanding of messaging/queuing systems or stream processing systems

  • Experience writing test driven code, pair programming, and leading/participating in design discussions about architecture, data shapes, and business logic

  • A foundational understanding and experience with topics related to platform scale, security, availability, deployment and operations

  • Experience with database and query performance tuning

  • Experience solving analytical business problems using data



 

Ways we work:

  • Test-Driven Development - we take responsibility for our code without QA engineers

  • Pair programming - we value collaborative development

  • Continuous Delivery - teams independently ship code to prod every day

  • Kanban & Lean - We value limiting work in progress and focusing on continuous flow

  • Continual improvement - we hold periodic retrospectives and adjust how we work

  • Autonomous & responsible teams - making their own product & dev choices

  • Cross-functional teams - collaborating through all phases of the product dev process

  • Customer research - we build what our customers actually want

  • Trusting leaders - who trust us to create and don’t impose deadlines or features

  • Solid technology - of the team’s choice, for the right job

 

 You are:

  • A supportive and engaged team member, able to express complex information to a variety of consumers.

  • Able to problem solve independently and prioritize work based on anticipated business value.

  • Able to distill complex ideas into straight forward language.

  • Passionate about data, innovation, and using technology to unlock the future.
