has the largest commercial Elm codebase in the world, and has hired Elm creator Evan Czaplicki
to develop the language full-time. We spend almost all of our front-end coding time writing Elm. Our software helps English teachers, and their students answer millions of questions per day on our site. About half of our 20-person engineering team
works remotely from around the world, and the other half is in our San Francisco office. We’re hiring
for front-end, back-end, and ops. No prior Elm experience necessary!
