Engineering at Cerego
Engineering team and processes

We operate on one-week cycles, with larger milestones usually lasting 1 month. We use continuous integration testing, peer review, and pairing to ensure our code is good as it moves through our environments onto production. Engineers take ownership of their features and have the ability to make changes across front end, back end, and infrastructure.

Technical Challenges

We generate ~1M events per day. We keep track of item difficulties, knowledge levels, and moving targets across individuals, courses, items, and item types, and those get automatically adjusted as more information comes into the system.

Projects you might work on
  • Utilize NLP + ML APIs to allow teachers to automatically generate quizzes based on a corpus of knowledge.

  • Develop a new learning experience for functional math that adjusts its difficulty as the user progress through the course.
