Zearn is looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer to join our team.

  • Familiarity with modern JavaScript frameworks like Vue.js, React, Angular, etc.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience with test-driven development or continuous delivery
  • A code sample (or a link to an open source contribution) for us to review
  • An interest in working on site a few days a week in New York City when the office reopens in 2022

Compensation
