Actively Learn's mission is to enable every student to learn deeply.

Our vision is why we are building the best digital reading platform for students. For too many, reading is simply not as educational and rewarding as it should be. We reinvent reading so that students deeply understand what they read, build connections between texts, and actively construct knowledge.

As a company, we want to help students learn, think, and become people who do great things. We are optimistic about what thinking young people can accomplish and we look forward to the world they will build.

We're hiring a software engineer to join our growing engineering team and help build out and scale our platform and services. We're looking for someone who is as passionate about education and collaboration as they are about technology.
