Cignition | Software Engineers: Full-Stack/Generalist; Machine Learning; Game Dev | San Mateo, CA, USA | FULL-TIME | ONSITE

Cignition is a small, growing, highly-collaborative education tech startup. We are looking for experienced software engineers for full-time positions, on-site in San Mateo. Compensation, stock options, and benefits are very competitive. We are not able to sponsor visas at this time.

Full-Stack/Generalist position: You should have enough real-world experience to demonstrate that you have good software fundamentals, you can pick up whatever is needed, and you can work independently and take ownership in our small team of engineers. You would work on back-end and front-end development, data analysis, AWS dev ops, and overall system architecture. We currently use Python/Flask/MongoDB on AWS, though you would get to decide future directions. Prior experience with any of these technologies is a plus, but we trust that you can learn anything you don't already know. You would also participate in defining the vision for our offerings.

This is to replace me as I head back to grad school. Our other engineer is primarily focused on game development, though he is super-sharp and shares the load for non-game work as well.

We are also looking for a second game dev, as well as a machine learning expert. The lines between these roles could blur if we find the right people.

Cignition is passionate about blending the arts and sciences of gameplay, teaching, and neuroscience to create immersive learning experiences for children. Our game, FogStone Isle, is loved by teachers, parents, and children. We're also launching an online micro-tutoring service which dovetails with our game (currently in trials in low-income schools). We believe in the importance of measuring the efficacy of our offerings, with a focus on improving students' conceptual understanding. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a growing team that is developing a truly original series of games and interactive experiences.
