Who We Are

HLT was sparked by paper flashcards that Alec Whitters, Co-Founder and CEO, and his peers were using to study for their dental boards. Wouldn't it make better sense, he thought, to use their smartphones to study? When he didn't find an effective mobile-learning solution, he decided to create it. HLT was born. Since its start in 2012, HLT has attracted millions of learners and become the market-leading platform for eLearning applications.

HLT's rapid growth is directly attributable to their emphasis on attracting top talent and building a culture that is nationally renowned. This includes being on Entrepreneur Magazine's coveted "Top Company Cultures" list in both 2017 and 2018.

What You Will Be Doing

You will be part of the development team building our world class web applications. You will get to come to work every day knowing you are helping educate millions of people all around the world.

Ideal Candidate

We are looking to work with the best. Our peer. Someone who learns from us as much as we learn from them. We are looking for someone bright with a proven track record in developing software for high quality, scalable applications. Someone we'll be proud to say is part of our family and who will play a large role in pushing HLT forward.

We're not going to list 100 technologies you need to know to join our team. Through our hiring process we've determined that there are really only a few must-haves to pass the bar:

  • You understand Computer Science fundamentals such as data structures/algorithms
  • You have a passion for continuous learning and improvement
  • You are a seasoned JavaScript developer and have a solid knowledge of modern JS.

Other things that would be helpful to know

  • Vue.js
  • Postgres
  • Heroku
  • Rails

How We Work

While our offices are in Coralville, Iowa, our developers work wherever they want. We just need you to be online and available via Slack during regular business hours. We're a team and we work as a team, so even if your preferred hours are the wee hours of the morning, that doesn't work for us because we need a team player, not a lone wolf.

What We Pay

This is a full time position, in addition to medical, dental and vision insurance, we also offer 8 holidays + 3 floating paid holidays. We have always maintained a "take what you need but don't screw it up for others" stance on vacation and PTO.

How To Apply

So if you are interested in working for a great company alongside a bunch of really talented developers, building cool software with the best tools, all from the comfort of your own home then please send us:

  • Your github username
  • Resume
  • A short description of something really cool you've worked on - code or tech-related, and preferably as your own project rather than something as part of an existing job. Perhaps a web app, node package or a mobile app. Or a fun game you built. Something!

That's it.

Life at HLT

  • Benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision)
  • Remote working
  • Flexible hours
  • Large amounts of autonomy

So Why HLT?

If you're interested in

  • Coming up with solutions, not just completing tasks

  • A fast paced and fun work environment
  • A career with a higher purpose

Then we would love to talk to you!
