LAMP Developers

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.

Required Skills:

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.
  • Javascript. You need to be able to accomplish client-side scripting effectively, including AJAX, preferably having used libraries such as jQuery.

Preferred Skills:

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.

Front-End Designers/Developers

eNotes also seeks front-end design work, either on a contractual or full-time basis.  Candidates should have strong Photoshop/Illustrator skills, HTML/CSS experience, and experience in web environments.  Any experience with javascript is a huge plus, particularly libraries like jQuery.

Experience with design on mobile platforms is a big plus as well.

To Apply:

Interested individuals should send a brief email along with a resume to jobs@enotes.com. If we are interested, we will contact you to set up a phone interview.

eNotes offers an excellent compensation package, including health/dental insurance, and an incentive stock option plan.
