Senior Full Stack Developer

Blue Canoe Learning is seeking a Senior Full Stack Developer to join our team and help us build innovative activities to help our users improve their English pronunciation and extend the management tools that we provide to our customers.
This position is full-time based in Bellevue WA.

Blue Canoe is the English pronunciation expert. We are a well-funded start up with an experienced and successful leadership team that is focused on improving the English pronunciation of non-native speakers, the challenging “last mile” of learning English. Mastery of English pronunciation is mission-critical for hundreds of millions of jobs around the world, and enables people to be truly effective and able to build empathy and rapport with customers and colleagues.

Our pronunciation platform includes a mobile app that engages English learners through a spoken game, using speech recognition and machine learning, and provides learners with personalized feedback for improvement. We are part of Paul Allen’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence incubator (AI2), are patent-pending, have deployments in the US and in 15 other countries around the world with stellar brand-name companies, and are growing quickly.


About the role:
At Blue Canoe, you’ll play a key role in a small (4-person) dev team, and each of your coworkers will be among the best at what they do. We all help out wherever we’re needed, so versatility and flexibility are critical, but you’ll also have ownership of one or more key pieces of our technology. If you enjoy taking on hard problems, and having the autonomy to see a project through from conception to release, this role is for you!

We would love to hear from you if:

  • You have 4+ years of experience in a software engineering position
  • You have developed web applications using modern MVC frameworks (ReactJS preferred)
  • You have a thorough understanding of web technologies (HTTP, REST, JSON, HTML, CSS)
  • You have built back-end services with .Net and/or Node.js
  • You have earned a Bachelor’s degree in computer science (or equivalent experience)
  • You have a passion for building clean, scalable code
  • You like to learn new languages and technologies quickly
  • Experience with AWS, C#, TypeScript, and React Native is a plus

Blue Canoe is committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We believe this will make our products better.
