Your Role

Allovue is looking for engineers that display a love of their craft and are continuing to strive to learn more about programming and building software in general. We don’t stop at helping to facilitate K–12 education; we strongly believe to stop learning is to grow stagnant.

We are looking for candidates that are varied in experiences and are generally well-versed in one or more specific areas of practice. Those areas may include:

  • front-end development
  • back-end development
  • data mining
  • operations

We have services written in R and Ruby: including a Rails API. We use Postgres and Elasticsearch as our persistence layers and Ember.js as the framework we currently use for our client-side application. Some languages we have been evaluating for upcoming services include Clojure, Elixir, and Node.js. We do not expect a candidate to have all of those skills currently, but he/she should be proficient in building web applications at scale.


  • 5+ years of professional software development
  • Comprehensive knowledge of one or more of these languages:
    • JavaScript
    • Ruby
    • Clojure
  • Experience with MVC frameworks and paradigms
  • Excellent designer of APIs for other developers (and future self!)
  • Solid understanding of both unstructured and relational databases
  • Collaborative
  • Low ego and high pride in your work

Bonus Points
