BookNook is hiring a Remote Data EngineerAbout Us BookNook is a dual bottom line education technology company that is committed to closing the early reading opportunity gap through innovations that prioritize authentic human connections to support learning. We believe the best edtech solutions are developed and supported by people with their roots in the classroom or the social sector, and we strive to build a team that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
A key feature of the BookNook product is our ability to leverage student performance data in order to track their progress and make informed lesson recommendations. We care deeply about the effectiveness of our approach, and as a Data Engineer at BookNook, you will play an integral role in building out and scaling our data strategy. The data engineer will work alongside our data analyst, psychometrician (testing expert), engineers, content experts, and product managers to build out an ETL and BI pipeline to help us answer key questions about the efficacy of our teaching methods. For instance, how does tutoring dosage affect student growth? Which cohorts of students are making the most or least progress, and why? When is a student ready to 'level up'? Our end goal is to productionalize machine learning models to track student growth accurately enough to ameliorate the burden of continual testing.
