Job Summary

Within the last five years, FranklinCovey has gone through a major transformation! We shifted from a typical training company to a tech-focused competitor with top-notch content. In 2018, we switched to subscription-based digital learning using our All-Access Pass platform. In 2021, we acquired Strive, a key player with clients like Slack, Airbnb, Pinterest, and Intuit. Now, we're positioned to lead in edtech. Our Platforms team is looking for great talent with a growth mindset to join and help grow our product.


As a Software Engineer, you will build 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 with an emphasis on performance and scalability.


Essential Job Functions


  • You will ship regularly and iteratively, writing testable, readable, and maintainable code.
  • Be involved in and possibly lead our scaling efforts.



  • 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.
  • Collaborate with fellow Engineering Team Members in Operational Reviews to monitor and analyze operational performance trends.



  • You will work with the product, design, and support teams to ensure users get the most value from the products you've built.
  • Fix bugs and performance problems.


Additional Key Responsibilities

  • Experience building and shipping high-quality software products by partnering with the Product team to give multiple technical solutions to product requirements.
  • This position will focus on backend technologies like Python and to a lesser extent PHP.
  • Experience with infrastructure and cloud operations. We use Terraform and Datadog to deploy and understand the current operational telemetry. This position will help staff up this skillset on our team and help to spread the knowledge to more of our team.
  • Experience architecting systems of significant user scale, considering performance, security and privacy.
  • Drive to continually improve and share knowledge with your teammates, through code reviews, technology presentations and articles.
  • Being proactive, digging into areas you are unfamiliar with and a willingness to work with ambiguity, by understanding the business needs and helping us choose a path forward.


Basic Qualifications


Preferred Skills & Experience

  • Familiarity with version control systems (e.g., Git) and collaborative development workflows.
  • Good understanding of data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented programming.
  • Excellent written communication skills, this is a team that works via written words, so not it’s just an ability to write, but a desire to drive change via writing.
