About This Role
carna.ai is a new approach to education with its AI-powered, comprehensive and data-driven platforms. We offer a platform with scientifically proven content written by 100s of linguists and reliable high technology solutions through a combination of linguistics and artificial intelligence. As part of the engineering team, you will:
Work closely with the rest of the team (co-founders, engineering, product, design, linguists) to define and implement new features from start to finish, with clean and well-tested code (dev-ops, server, client).
Build, maintain, and continuously improve our internal automation tooling to ensure our students' quick and reliable education.
Build and maintain infrastructure and monitoring such that our students consistently have the best possible learning experience.

We use React (Web) / React Native (IOS / Android), .NET Core(.NET 5 with its new name) / GraphQL (API), yarn / webpack / babel (packaging), Postgres / Sequelize (core data), SQS (task queues), and Algolia (indexed data). Our code is deployed on Azure and is mostly written in C# and Typescript/Javascript though we use some Python/C++ for ML/AI.
We strive only to choose the right tool for the job & welcome new ideas.
This might be a fit for you if...
You have experience building and maintaining software used by consumers or businesses.
You're a fast learner and self-starter (hint: startup hustle required).
You readily learn technologies as you go. You enjoy fast-paced environments and are thoughtful about the tradeoffs between technologies.
You understand and care deeply about the ramifications of the code you write on the customer and the business.
You are comfortable with the ambiguity and pace of iteration of an early-stage startup.
You are resourceful and will do whatever it takes to deliver delightful customer experiences.

Nice to haves:
You've built and maintained web applications or social networks that have reached a large audience, ideally while the product is experiencing rapid growth.
You are fluent with JavaScript and have experience with React, React Native, Node and/or GraphQL.
Experience with Databases such as PostgreSQL

Core Values
Listen first
We believe in empowering and delighting our customers. The biggest part of that is listening to them, when they’re happy, and when they’re frustrated. Before making any hard decision, listen to different points of view, collect as much insight as possible, and move forward with conviction. Don’t bring the ego in the building.
Always learn
“One who carries a cat by the tail learns something one can learn in no other way.”
Mark Twain

Failure is embraced as long as you learn something from it.
We believe in curiosity and first-principles reasoning. All ideas are welcome, and debate is embraced. We aim for clarity of thought and collecting diverse points of view from our team and our customers.
Keep it simple
“Stock is the backbone of good cooking. Just roast some bones, roast some vegetables, put them in a big pot with water, and reduce and reduce and reduce.”
Anthony Bourdain

Whether cooking, writing a book or managing your workload, boiling ideas down to their essence, and bringing elegant simplicity to complex systems are the backbones of operational excellence.
Dream Big
Our mission is bold, so our dreams need to be big too. Even when we tackle small tasks, we do it because they unlock bigger things.
Our commitment to diversity
Building a team with diverse experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives is the only way we will ever achieve our most ambitious goals. Actions stem from principles, and our commitment to building a diverse team influences walrus.ai at every level of the company, from how we hire, to how we conduct meetings.
