React Developer (Contract)
Engagement: 4 weeks
SparkPath helps students and schools re-imagine career development. Through our innovative tool called the Challenge Cards, we help students look beyond job titles to challenges they want to work on.
The problem we are solving
Students are being asked to answer the question: What do you want to be when you grow up?
This question perpetuates the myth that they will be just one thing: one profession or one job title. This is no longer true.
What is much more likely is that they will work on several different challenges, problems and opportunities over the course of their lives.
To help students look beyond job titles, we created the Challenge Cards. This physical product (card deck of 30 cards) is being used in schools across North America (including McGill, Queen's, Waterloo, University of Toronto, etc). There are over 5.000 decks of Challenge Cards currently in use.
We have created a digital prototype (in React) and we need your help to complete it.
What you will do
Our prototype already allows students to choose their top challenges. You will write code to help students create an account, save their results and generate a customized PDF report with their top challenges.
You will also create a school admin portal where schools can view their student’s results and reports, collect demographic information and issue license codes.
You will work directly with the founder to create the solution that schools need. We have the user stories already defined. Your role will be important: you will make decisions about the code that will help steer the business.
