At SEAS Education, we build software that enables educators to achieve the best possible outcomes for students with special needs. Our platforms help educators discover a student's strengths and needs, build an individualized education plan, track student progress, document health-related services, and recover the cost of Medicaid-reimbursable services.
As a Ruby on Rails developer, you will work primarily on our plan-management product, which guides educators through the process of creating special education plans for students, eliminates as much manual data entry as possible, and provides validation to ensure plans comply with laws protecting student rights.
