Senior Software Engineer / Team Lead

Title: Senior Software Engineer - FrankinCovey Everywhere Team

Reports to: Engineering Manager, FranklinCovey Everywhere

Location: Remote – Anywhere in the US


Job Summary

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will build and maintain products to help organizations train their employees and overcome their most pressing people-related problems at scale. You will work with product, design, data, and content teams to build a modern learning platform, scaling usage (and impact) 10-100x in the next year.


Role Context

Historically, FranklinCovey primarily offered in-person, one-off training. Over the last five years we have made substantial investments, and have had significant success, transitioning the business to an online, subscription product: All Access Pass. Last year we acquired Strive, an edTech startup whose leadership development platform was used by leading tech companies like Slack, Airbnb, Pinterest and Intuit. Under the Strive team’s direction and leadership, we are doubling down on their technology/product-centric approach and looking to build out a larger product and engineering team.


Essential Job Functions

  • Ideate: 

    • Engineers participate early in the product development process. You will review quantitative and qualitative research about our clients and learners and weigh in on the product strategy and roadmap.

  • Build:

    • You will ship regularly and iteratively, writing testable, readable, and maintainable code.

    • Collaborate with product engineering teams to ensure a seamless integration of our frontend code with the app shell as well as defining native features to expose.

    • Fix bugs and performance problems.

  • Review & Architect: 

    • As a Senior Software Engineer, you will play a leadership role in code reviews for the team, helping set the engineer bar, defining best practices, and weighing in on major architecture decisions.

  • Support:

    • You will work with the sales, marketing, implementation and support teams to ensure users get the most value from the products you've built.



  • Experience building and shipping high-quality software products.

  • Front-end experience with React, TypeScript and CSS.

  • Back-end experience. Django/Python is preferred but not required. We're looking for great engineers and are confident that you can learn the language with time and direction.

  • Experience architecting systems of moderate complexity, taking into account performance, security and privacy.

  • Experience managing projects.

  • Ability and experience mentoring/guiding/developing more junior engineers with code reviews, best practice sharing, and architecture decisions. Drive to continually improve and share knowledge with your teammates.

  • Experience working in a fast-moving, startup-like environment.

  • Bonus: Experience with either mobile development or hybrid app development.


Why We Think This is a Great Opportunity

  • Interesting Product, Technical and Organizational Challenges – This year we will increase the number of users on Strive's learning platform 100 to 1000x. This will require us to solve a number of interesting product, technical and organizational challenges – whatever your unique interest is, there's likely a good challenge for you to work on.

  • Impact at Scale – FranklinCovey positively impacts the lives of millions of learners and tens of millions of their direct reports every year – FC directly teaches 4x as many learners in the US as all US business schools combined! By building out platform integrations for learning and planning in the flow of work, you'll substantially increase the quality of the learning experience and thus improve the skills and experiences of that enormous audience.

  • Startup Speed, Established Company Security – FranklinCovey's product & tech org is small relative to the company's learner/client scale, so you'll be able to move quickly to build a strategy and ship great products. Unlike a startup, FC is an established (and profitable!) publicly traded company, so you won't worry about the next funding round falling through and a lack of job security.
