Front End Developer

Development – Ridgeland, Mississippi
Department Development
Employment Type Full-time
Minimum Experience Experienced


SchoolStatus is looking for a Front-End Web/Mobile Developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application. You will work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works. 


SchoolStatus is a young company based in Mississippi who is changing education forever by providing awesome tools for K-12 teachers and administrators. We strive daily to create the best data suite and communication tools on the planet by partnering with schools across the country and listening to their needs.

We have a culture based around freedom and responsibility. We believe that as we grow, we should provide our employees with increased responsibility and freedom in their jobs. We aren't hung up on titles or inane conference calls. We recruit and retain best-in-class talent and regularly judge all staff by the following premise: "would we enthusiastically rehire this person?".

We're an incredibly dedicated group of folks who know our relevant areas of expertise very well, but we also know when we need help. We believe in the power of a group of highly motivated, intelligent, and responsible folks surrounding themselves with the same and seeing what happens next. 

We started out as a napkin idea that has blossomed into a multi-million dollar enterprise by providing amazingly useful products to our customers and we want you to be a part of that.


Throughout your career, you've been a "go getter" your managers and peers depend on to get the job done. 

You work independently (meaning you don’t require constant instruction) but also know when to ask your teammates for help.

You’re a team player who shows up on time and doesn’t complain.

You embrace the challenge of doing something you’ve probably never done before and believe, together, we have the means to change education forever.

(This is a biggie) You are looking to surround yourself with the smartest group of people you’ve ever worked with because you know they’ll help you step up your game...and you, theirs.



  • Develop new user-facing features

  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs

  • Optimize application for maximum speed and scalability

  • Proficient understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3
  • Basic understanding of server-side CSS pre-processing platforms, such as LESS and SASS

  • Good understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates, and AJAX
  • Basic knowledge of image authoring tools, with ability to crop, resize, or perform small adjustments to an image. Familiarity with tools such as Gimp or Photoshop is a plus.
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them
  • Native iOS or Android experience is a plus.
  • React and React Native experience is a plus but training is available.
  • Authorized to work in the United States

Your comp package would be highly dependent upon your proven history working in a front-end developer role. However, it’s important to know that SchoolStatus’ total compensation packages are generally at top of market.


We provide best-in-class, employer-paid medical, dental, and vision benefits. We also provide a retirement contribution match dollar-for-dollar up to a set percentage. For family benefits, we provide the employee's benefits for 100% and provide spouse/domestic partner/family coverage at 50%.

Paid Vacation & Sick Leave:

We provide a mandatory six weeks of paid vacation/holidays per year and work closely to ensure our employees take the time they need to be happy and find a work/life balance.

Cool Perks:

In addition to providing a great working environment, we also provide a corporate resort condominium for your use as a perk.
