Senior Software Engineer

Full-time, remote only, USA. $130-160K salary. Equity with 4-year vesting.

Love building a product that improves a user’s life so much that they can’t help but share it with their peers?

Boost My School is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team passionate about helping schools get the money they need for their students to thrive.

Why work at Boost My School?

1. Be proud of your impact helping schools and students

  • Boost My School is trusted by K-12 and higher ed administrators to raise $50M+ every year from 100,000+ donors to support 40,000+ students
  • Every Boost team member has clear accountability over results that directly impact the success of our company and our customers
  • Our business model is designed so that we only succeed when our customers succeed

2. Work with thoughtful teammates building a champion company together

  • Openly view all company communication outside of personal matters - we mostly communicate over Slack public channels and Notion public wikis
  • Openly view company, team, and individual performance metrics
  • Use our weekly No Meetings Day to get uninterrupted work done (or to do your laundry while you work)
  • Take on tasks in which you have the final say over your manager or the CEO
  • Receive regular professional development through weekly 1-on-1s, monthly self-reviews, and quarterly career check-ins
  • Get to know your remote teammates at our twice-a-year, week-long, in-person retreats (as long as it’s safe to travel)

3. Join a culture that lets you be your best self at work and outside of work

  • Internal meetings are scheduled during our core working hours (12pm to 5pm ET) so you have more flexibility over your time
  • Take care of errands or pick up your kids as long as you communicate accountability over the things you’re responsible for
  • Our company calendar is aligned with the school year - we have 15 company days off across major holidays and Summer Fridays
  • Outside of the 15 company days off, we suggest taking an additional 10 to 15 days off, and require taking 1 week of continuous time off per calendar year
  • Company covers medical, dental, and vision insurance premiums and out-of-pocket expenses through QSEHRA ($440/mo for individuals, $891/mo for those with families)
  • Use your remote working stipend ($200/mo) for your internet bill, to buy lunch, or for professional development

Responsibilities

  • Join a fast-moving environment - you’ll deploy to production on first week
  • Be responsible for and implement major architecture decisions and initiatives
  • Make major contributions across the entire stack: infrastructure, frontend, backend, analytics, internal tools
  • Play a role in selecting future technologies - our stack is an isomorphic React/Relay web app that talks to a Rails GraphQL API
  • Work with teammates that care about writing maintainable code - we practice continuous deployment, incremental pull requests, strict linting, type checking, and strong test coverage
  • Opportunity to grow with the company into a manager, if you consistently achieve targets and you exhibit the habits needed to succeed in the new role
  • Work directly with and report to our Founder & CEO, who coded the first version of the product
  • Support your teammates and fill in gaps as needed since we are a small team

About you

  • You build champion habits: You set yourself up to be a champion by continuously improving what you do day-to-day
  • You communicate accountability: You proactively share updates about your responsibilities so your teammates know you’re holding yourself accountable
  • You use radical candor: You proactively use radical candor so that your teammates trust you to deliver critical feedback
  • You move fast with purpose: You make decisions and execute quickly so that you both succeed and learn faster
  • You do less better: You stay focused on fewer things so that those things are done at a champion-level
  • 6+ years of software engineering experience, ideally at a B2B SaaS company
  • Bonus: You’re familiar with the school fundraising industry - e.g. you helped raise money for your school or you know what “advancement” means
