About Apptegy

Since our start in 2015, we’ve gone from a group of individuals to a community pushing toward the same goal of building a fantastic company with great people, great products, and, most importantly, a great culture.

Apptegy is building products to empower school leaders to run better schools.

We are growing quickly and are focused on bringing thoughtful, high-performers together to craft amazing products for our clients and to make Apptegy a better place than it already is.

What we’ve built and are building:

Apptegy works with thousands of schools and school districts across the United States. For the past 6 years, we’ve been working on making our technology into a breath of fresh air. School leaders, superintendents and administrators have some of the most stressful and demanding jobs in the world. They are responsible for the safety, well-being, and education of thousands of students. Every day they juggle the roles of politician, disciplinarian, visionary, and accountant.

That’s why we focus on simplicity. By making everything simple, we lower the technical barrier so that any administrator can lead with the most powerful tools available.

In short, we are enabling school leaders to brand, market, and strengthen their schools. Amazing events and happenings occur in schools every day and our technology allows that to be shared across web, mobile, social media, and alerts with a single, simple-to-use tool.

As a Senior Front-End Engineer you will…

  • Work with a SCRUM team with other front-end engineers, Ruby on Rails engineers, and Product Owners
  • Translate new designs into code to build new platforms, products, and features
  • Write beautiful javascript in Vue.js
  • Learn from other engineers and share your own knowledge
  • Critique designs, suggest improvements to UI/UX, and overall experience
  • Write clear documentation with the help of Product and Tech Ops
  • Use good coding standards (best framework and language idioms)
  • Work closely with Product Managers and Engineering leaders (CTO & VP)

What is expected of engineers at Apptegy?

We expect a lot of our engineers. We’ve been able to build an exceptional team that cares about their work and each other. We are incredibly proud of our team. We are also fortunate to have the opportunity to build products, platforms, and features that empower schools and school leaders to highlight their strengths and give the best opportunities to their students.

Self-driven & Always Learning: At Apptegy, we believe that the right people are intrinsically motivated. We have built a team of engineers that enjoy learning and take that responsibility seriously. Whether they are starting out on their career or well into their experience, they are still looking to improve on their weaknesses and to use their strengths to help others.

In short, they are naturally motivated to do meaningful work and they own their learning experience.

To quote one experienced engineer who joined Apptegy in 2020, “People here are like some sort of crack squad of commandos. They are running into what needs doing and doing it. They’re more likely to do too much than too little. This is an excellent team.”

An interest in Culture and Code: We reject the stereotype that engineers want to be left alone to work. In our experience, engineers care deeply about culture, empathy, and enjoying the people they work with. Many of our best engineers were as curious about culture as anyone in People or HR would be.

We have been able to create a high-performing and thoughtful culture across the company and that extends to and is made better by Engineering. That means you get time to do great work and you get to be surrounded by people who care about their work and you.

Speak up: In some companies, engineers have to wait their turn to speak up. You have to have a minimum number of years of experience to have a voice at the table. Or if you’re a senior engineer, you need to hold off until you’ve gained the trust of the veteran engineers.

At Apptegy, you have a voice from the start. Some of the best ideas have come from junior engineers that see things differently. We want the best ideas to win— no matter who it comes from. And those times when the best idea comes from someone else are an opportunity for you to learn and to increase your learning process.

What is true of you?

An aptitude for challenge & a track record of success:

  • You have completed a four-year college degree ideally in Computer Science or similar, or without a technical degree, you have experience building successful products and platforms for 5+ years on an engineering team
  • You have an impressive track record in your academic and work history
  • 3+ years of experience in Javascript and ES6+
  • Knowledge of and experience with front-end frameworks (Vue.js, React, or Angular)
  • Experience with raw CSS and frameworks
  • Experience writing tests for your code
  • Experience working on an engineering team

What else should I know?

We take our responsibility as a company seriously and aim to make this the best job that you’ve had (and one that sets you up for future success). We want your day at work and your time at home to be a joyful experience that’s why we provide:

  • Medical insurance for you and dependents
  • 15 days Aguinaldo
  • Vacation Bonus
  • Vales de Despensa
  • Paid Parking
  • Discretionary/flexible paid time off policy
  • Paid travel to/from Little Rock, Arkansas (after Covid-19)

If the challenge of building a rapidly growing startup excites you as much as it does us, we hope that you’ll consider joining us.
