About Literably

Literably is a fast-growing education technology company that provides early literacy assessment software to elementary schools. Using our product, K-5 students can read out loud into a mobile device, generating key data for reading instruction that would otherwise be collected manually. This saves teachers enormous amounts of time and drives critical intervention decisions for young readers. We currently serve over 200,000 students, and among our customers are several of America's largest school districts, including Orange County Public Schools and Spokane Public Schools.

About the role

Skills: Python, Amazon Web Services (AWS)

We are looking for a senior full-stack software engineer to take significant technical ownership over Literably's web services and core assessment processing system. You will play a leading role in both defining the technical roadmap and scaling the system to handle our rapid user growth. We work with AWS, Python, Django, Redis, and Postgres, but specific experience with this stack is not required. Prior experience operating autonomously and proactively at early stage startups is a big plus. Other nice-to-haves include experience with signal processing, audio data analysis, machine learning, and automated speech recognition.


We work with Python, Amazon Web Services, Pulumi, Docker, Git, Django, Redis, CircleCI, and Postgres. We receive huge volumes of noisy, often poorly-articulated audio data from young children in real classrooms every day. Using a combination of automated speech recognition and human transcription, our software converts this into clean, actionable information for elementary school teachers. Improving and scaling this assessment processing pipeline makes up the bulk of our engineering work.
