Brainly is the world’s largest online community, uniting students, parents and teachers in solving their academic problems and exchanging knowledge.

Every month we are proud to be home for 200 million users . Besides delivering world class educational products we’re a technology company at heart.

Engineering teams at Brainly are proud of the work they do and the impact they make on the future of education worldwide.


Back-end engineers enjoy all the pros and cons of distributed programming. We ship changes to production multiple times a day and our delivery pipeline makes your code ready to join thousands of already running containers in just 5 minutes.

Our services land on Kubernetes that is hosted on AWS . We still have services running on Mesos / Marathon stack, but they get the same amount of love from us.

Services communicate either via messaging or good old HTTP. Our platform is defined entirely as code ( Terraform, Ansible ) and we get lots of goodies out of the box - alerting, logging and telemetry to name a few.

We are believers in the DevOps culture , but we still have some things to do to get there.


We also enjoy great engineering culture - we do code reviews and schedule time to write tests . We truly believe that our collaborative environment makes space for everyone to learn, improve and take our engineering to the next level.

We try to give back to the community as much as we can - you can see us at various conferences, read our blog posts or even come to one of our meetups that we proudly host in our lovely office.


We are looking for engineers who are ready to tackle complex challenges with the right tools. We don’t expect our future colleagues to have the experience with every language or tool we use at production.

We write mainly in Go and Python but, as everything in life, these can be learned and we are sure that our bootcamp will get you up to speed.

We are also a team of engineers with diverse backgrounds and we are more than happy to learn from your experience too.


We’re looking for a strong Backend developer to work with us on development of a high quality and reliable product for our users.

User engagement is one of the key factors of Brainly’s success, and it is present in every part of our product. Using advanced Machine Learning techniques, we work to ensure world-class personalized experiences for our users.

Products that people love to use with business value mixed in is the recipe for success. Inside the team there are two areas of focus : The Helping Experience and The Learning Experience.
