eNotes is actively seeking developers with strong experience in LAMP environments. Ideal candidates should have a passion for building an innovative and exciting educational platform for students and teachers around the world. eNotes is one of the most heavily trafficked educational websites in the world, with millions of visits every year.
You will be:
- Deploying content from some of the world's largest education publishers, much of which has never been available online before.
- Working with a small, dedicated team in building innovative software applications to help students and teachers from around the world connect with each other, share ideas, and find information.
We believe smart developers can learn just about anything, but experience with the following is required:
- Object-oriented PHP, including commonly used design patterns. This means you need a thorough understanding of classes and objects, and how to use composition and inheritance to build extensible applications.
- MySQL. You need significant competency with SQL databases. You should be able to construct efficient queries against a MySQL database, understand the principles of relational databases, and understand the importance of normalization.
Previous experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable:
- Linux systems administration, especially with Ubuntu, and experience in cloud-based environments.
- Scaleable MySQL environments, using replication and/or clustering.
- Experience with common version control systems such as Subversion, Perforce, or Git.
- Mobile application development, particularly for the iOS platform. This is a big plus and will highlight your candidacy.
Experience with design on mobile platforms is a big plus as well.
Interested individuals should send a brief email along with a resume to email@example.com. If we are interested, we will contact you to set up a phone interview.
