Application: Full-Stack Web and App Developer (full-time position)

Cortex is an educational company founded by three siblings from Yale, Dartmouth, and Stanford. We are leading a movement to refocus education on personal development and positive impact, not just grades and scores. Unlike traditional academic services, we don’t simply help students perform well on the SAT and write grammatically correct application essays. In addition to providing these basic services, we inspire and empower students to authentically identify what matters to them and successfully pursue those objectives. More specifically, we use college consulting as a vehicle for developing students into self-reflective, growth-minded, solutions-oriented change-makers. This, in turn, leads to truly powerful college applications that open the doors of opportunity at top universities.

We are looking for a full-stack web and app developer who can work with us full-time at our office in Fremont, CA. We are developing a website and phone app that will help students stay on track with respect to their academic and personal goals.

Starting salary is from $90K-120K/year depending on experience, with opportunities for bonuses. Up to half of all work can be done remotely.

The Ideal Candidate:

  • B.A. or B.S. required

  • At least 2 years of experience with full-time software development

  • Extensive experience with web and app development, both front end and back end

  • Familiar with React

  • Familiar with Material Design
