Full Stack Developer - Venture-backed EdTech Startup

Entangled Group - San Francisco, California - Full time

At Pathstream, an Entangled Venture, we are on a mission to create radical impact on career and economic mobility, through high quality and accessible career-focused education. To do so, we are building an online platform which teaches job-critical tech skills, and completely changes the nature of the online learning experience. Whereas most online learning consists of passive video lectures, Pathstream users build career skills within actual software platforms used on the job, ensuring they are ready to perform in a real work environment. Throughout the courses, users build a portfolio which demonstrates their skills and ultimately earn a certification from the relevant software platform company, both of which ensure that their efforts translate into actual career mobility.

We have launched beta courses with our first two major clients, Facebook on Digital Marketing and Unity on VR/AR. We have established partnerships with colleges and corporate learning departments across the country to ensure these courses and skills are accessible to traditional learners as well as working adults.
