ABOUT US

ProctorExam is a fast-growing education-tech startup based in Amsterdam, and we are changing the world of e-learning by offering web services which identify exam takers behind the computer and creates cheating proof environments for online exams. We believe online education is the key to revolutionizing learning. The ProctorExam software combines screen sharing, use of the webcam, and the camera on a mobile device to create a 360 degree secure environment so that students can take their exams anywhere, anytime ( as long as they have an Internet connection:) ).

 

WORKING WITH US

You will get an opportunity to concentrate on the pure technical solution, learn new technologies, implementation of Web development, scaling system, and working in an Agile environment.

You will become an active member of the development team.

 

ABOUT YOU

Action beats inactivity. When you're given a task, you take ownership and find an effective way to complete it, whether or not it requires dozens of Google searches, asking your teammates, etc..

Learning gives you satisfaction. You strive to improve your work and expand your industry and technical knowledge. Successfully implement development processes, coding best practices.

You're persistent. You love the opportunity to solve new problems every day and won't give up when you don't know the answer right away.

You love doing things efficiently. We believe in systems and processes that let us scale our impact to be larger than ourselves. Operate in an Agile development environment while collaborating with key stakeholders.

  • Work with the technical team to build tools that will speed up and increase the quality of product and support at the same time.

We are building an environment that rewards hard work and encourages communication and collaboration with teammates.
