Production Engineer
New Classrooms
Remote, NY, United States

Job Title

Production Engineer

Job Description

About the Role

Because we’re in the middle of a complete replatforming, we’re supporting multiple legacy environments while a separate department (Software Engineering) builds the new one. Each time Software Engineering completes a component of the new platform, Production Engineering partners with them to ensure launch readiness and do the actual launch, and then takes over the maintenance and enhancement of that component. This role can be remote.

About You

You seek out worthwhile challenges, thrive in complexity, and find satisfaction in making complicated things simpler. Your technical depth is matched by your depth of character; nothing is ever “someone else’s problem” to you. Your teammates can always count on you in a pinch; you exhibit grace under pressure. You’re always learning and always improving. You let nothing stand in your way because success is the only option when serving the greater good.
