This job is expired and may no longer be accepting applications.

Are you an experienced PHP developer who loves the prospect of building game-changing tools for educators and students? If so, DeansList is the place for you. Back-end developers are a critical part of our small but mighty engineering team, one that's constantly releasing new features while building scalable code written to last the long haul. You'll work directly with our Director of Technology and CEO and interact heavily with our School Success and Data teams to ensure everything we build is meeting a diverse range of client needs. You'll also communicate directly with school administrators and teachers, respond to their needs, and often co-develop new features. Many of our clients are extremely tech-savvy and, in addition to educators, you'll support the data directors and programmers who interface with our APIs (REST and GraphQL) and build their own reports in our online development studio.

Day-to-day tasks vary but include:

  • Architecting and building major new features
  • Making existing features better
  • Responding to engineering tickets and evaluating feature requests
  • Working with third-party systems (client and upstream/downstream providers)
