We’re hiring senior front-end engineers in our Philadelphia office, who are passionate about technology and education, to help build out our Practice product. Practice is the world’s most robust platform for teaching and learning real-world skills — the kinds of skills you have to practice to master. Our customers include major brands in both the higher education and corporate domains. On a given day, our clients are using Practice to demonstrate proper techniques for tying surgical knots, learning to speak to customers appropriately in difficult situations, practice arguing a case in front of a judge and much more.

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. A week each quarter to work on relevant pet projects and features.

Our Philadelphia office is located in the heart of Center City at 16th and Market, on top of Suburban Station and near pretty much every other form of transit into the city.


  • We’re building innovative web applications. By leveraging single page application design, ES6, CSS3, and other cutting edge technologies, we hope to bring the richness of native desktop and mobile apps to the web.
  • We use the latest tools to support progressive browsers and companies: you can leave your IE6 hacks at home.
  • We are cloud native. For this job, that means bringing the fault-tolerant and high availability principles that power the cloud to the front-end to deliver lightning fast, ultra-reliable applications that delight our users.


  • Breadth of experience across languages and frameworks.
  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript, including the latest features in ES6.
  • Production experience with modern JS frameworks like React.
  • Demonstrated experience unit testing JavaScript applications to ensure application quality.
  • Capable communicators passionate about product development and user experience.
  • Autodidacts who love continual learning and exploration.
  • Engineering leaders who care about coding standards and writing lean, maintainable software.
  • 5+ plus years of professional software development experience.
  • BS or greater in Computer Science preferred.


  • Competitive salary, equity, and 401k
  • Employee stock purchase plan
  • 100% paid medical, dental, disability, and life insurance
  • HSA program, vision, voluntary life, and AD&D
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Paid time off, 9 paid holidays, and flexible work schedules
  • Gym club reimbursements and rewards-based fitness tracking
  • Latest software and tools with top of the line equipment
