Global LT has been connecting language learners and teachers for over 40 years to help learners succeed anywhere with their second language.  Our super power has always been finding amazing teachers and nurturing their relationship with our students to produce success where many other approaches have failed.  Now, we're building on that core of meaningful human relationships to create an unmatched experiential, interest-driven, portfolio-based learning platform. 

YOU WILL
  • Be the first member of a newly formed product development team tasked with helping Global LT to build new products adding learning tools and experiences for our students and driving growth. 
  • Help to define the roles, recruit, interview, and make hiring decisions for additional teammates. 
  • Be responsible for leading the work to build and operate our products; deciding architecture/frameworks/tools, establishing coding guidelines/engineering processes, ensuring quality/security/performance, etc. 
  • Have a key voice in deciding what products we should build in addition to how we should build them. 
  • Seek to understand the needs of our teachers and students; actively by meeting with them regularly and passively by ensuring that our platform collects actionable data. 
  • Be a student yourself by using our products to learn a new language. 
ABOUT YOU
  • You are widely knowledgeable about industry best practices, have well-informed and defensible opinions, people tend to follow your lead, and you're good at helping them to learn and grow. 
  • You have extensive experience building scalable, high-performance, resilient, web-based, and mobile software. 
  • You are an expert at debugging, with strong intuitions, high idea productivity, and a broad toolset that you use to dig into and solve any operational problem. 
  • When you encounter complicated, inefficient, and brittle systems you can plan and execute strategies to renovate or replace them with something better while minimizing disruptions. 
  • You have built, scaled, and maintained Ruby on Rails-based apps and you find yourself feeling like a curmudgeon when you overhear a conversation about some hot, new, JavaScript framework. 
  • You also love that hot, new, JavaScript framework and know how to get huge value out of it along with Rails. 
  • UI/UX may not be your strong-suit but you've got good instincts, can build elegant user experiences, and thrive when you can work with a talented designer. 
  • You feel at home with an AWS stack (S3, RDS, Beanstalk, SQS, ElasticCache, OpenSearch, etc.) and can make it go a long ways. 
  • You're comfortable with cross-platform or hybrid mobile frameworks (Cordova, React Native, Flutter, etc.) 
  • You're willing to work with at least 4 hours of overlapping US East Coast Time.
