Senior Software Engineer

Studypool is a fast-growing online micro-tutoring platform. We connect students that have academic questions with tutors that can help through 5 - 10 min tutoring sessions. Using online technology we've created the infrastructure needed to support this concept. Working through difficult problems is at the heart of learning, yet students can get so frustrated that they give up and lose their passion for academic subjects. We are focused on improving the learning process, motivated by the opportunity to nurture students’ intrinsic curiosity.

We have offices in Silicon Valley, Philadelphia and Honduras.
