At Instructure, our vision is to help people learn, develop, and engage from their first day at school to their last day of work. Our goal is simple: create more effective ways for everyone everywhere to access education, make discoveries, share knowledge, be inspired, and do big things. We accomplish all this by giving smart, creative, passionate people opportunities to create awesome. So here’s your opportunity…

We're hiring a remote Software Engineer, who is passionate about technology and education, to help build new features into our existing products.

Like our customers, we value a learning culture and expect our engineers to work closely with product, QA, and support to build the best possible solutions, not just write code to a spec. We put our money where our mouth is. Engineers at Instructure enjoy an annual company-wide tech conference in the Utah mountains, biweekly tech talks, and quarterly Hackweeks, all designed to encourage as much exploration and learning as possible

Most of our work is open source, even our primary product (Canvas). Check us out on Github:
