Learnosity Hiring: Business Development Engineer – New York City

Learnosity is on a mission to deliver on the promise of technology in education by providing the best assessments to students worldwide. We do this by enabling our customers to create engaging, authentic assessments using our powerful authoring and broad range of question types.

With offices in Sydney, Dublin and New York, a talented and growing team, an impressive client list and a recent CODiE award, it’s an incredibly exciting time to join the team.

We are looking for a sharp, technical individual to join the BD team in New York City and help us continue to grow and to continue delivering for our clients.

Technically our products are based on several technologies. We have a large number of integration points with JavaScript APIs with PHP back ends. We provide our clients with scalability through the use of Amazon’s Cloud Services.

Who are we looking for?

Up until now the tech team has been mainly based in Sydney with the business team in Dublin. With an international clientele it is important that we start to build a  presence in New York too.

We are looking for someone who can bridge the technical – business divide. Someone who is equally comfortable talking to clients and prospective clients as well as digging into code to find the root of a problem. You will need to acquire a thorough technical understanding of our product suite in order to successfully field questions from third party developer teams.
What is the role?

The role is comprised of two main parts:

Product Engineer
You will represent the Learnosity technical team on business calls and will answer the more difficult technical questions, provide product advice and work with both the third party dev. team and the Learnosity developer team to architect mutually agreeable solutions. Typically you and one of the senior members of the business development team will represent Learnosity at business meetings.
You will also be responsible for preparing functional specs and responding to tenders/RFPs.

Technical Client Liaison
You will play a key role in developing long -term relationships with clients through supporting client developer teams with their implementation and by checking out bugs and recommending/implementing fixes as appropriate. You will take ownership of our documentation site. This is the primary port of call for client support and needs to be updated and amended with every release.

You will need to be:

comfortable digging into code, passionate about technology & keen to continue learning;
confident providing technical advice and recommendations to clients;
an excellent communicator; comfortable communicating with tech and non-tech teams alike;
willing to work appropriate hours, to liaise with the Sydney team and our international clientele;
willing to travel (we anticipate the first month or so of the role will be in Sydney).

It would be great if you have:

  • 3+ years experience as a developer;
  • MBA or similar;
  • technical writing experience;
  • a strong understanding of Web technologies.
  • Being part of the Learnosity team is a commitment to push yourself and those around you to do better, constantly adapt and learn new technologies, and be able to apply yourself to any challenge, whether you’re just starting out or a veteran of the industry.

 The two categories we were shortlisted in are: Most innovative new learning product and e-learning age outstanding learning organization.

We were absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted for the most innovative new learning product award, an award which seeks to recognize products which have the potential to revolutionise the way learning is designed, delivered, supported, enhanced or managed.

We were even more delighted when we found out that we were also shortlisted for the e-learning age outstanding learning organization award. This award is particularly significant for us as it recognizes companies which have taken a strategic approach to growth in order to achieve organizational excellence. Learnosity have been contributing to the e-learning industry since 2007 and have consistently focussed on bringing innovation and cutting-edge technology to the educational world and this award validates all our hard work and effort in this area.
