When you join Turnitin, you'll be welcomed into a company that is a recognized innovator in the global education space. For more than 20 years, Turnitin has partnered with educational institutions to promote honesty, consistency, and fairness across all subject areas and assessment types. Over 16,000 academic institutions, publishers, and corporations use our services: Gradescope by Turnitin, iThenticate, Turnitin Feedback Studio, Turnitin Originality, Turnitin Similarity, ExamSoft, and ProctorExam.
Turnitin has offices in Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Our diverse community of colleagues are all unified by a shared desire to make a difference in education. Come join us, and let's make change together.
TurnItIn is looking to grow the backend engineering team responsible for search and report generation. This team has been developing the core services at the heart of TurnItIn over the past 20 years and is looking for engineers eager to tackle difficult problems in a way that is scalable, available, performant, elegant and readable. Its a small team and hence youll be touching many different pieces of the codebase and will wear many hats while learning from top-notch colleagues. Our work often requires a good knowledge of algorithms, experience with parallel processing, understanding micro service frameworks and a heap of working with others to flesh out designs and push services.
We run a light-process kanban model for project management, have a distributed team across 4 timezones (US to UK), work heavily with our DevOps org and take pride in the services we release. Unit and integration tests are a must, and code-ownership means we are the team on call if things break (having said that, it is rare that we get a call). Youll be working with people who love their jobs, love the challenges, and most of all we enjoy working with each other. Some of the services we own: our web crawler, our report generation pipeline, our similarity-indexing system, our document storage and conversion system and many other services that support those.
