Instructure is a successful, fast-moving technology startup that is
disrupting the Learning Management System (LMS) market by setting a new
standard for education technology, and we're looking for some top-notch
people to join the team. Our company is stable and growing quickly and has
been featured on TechCrunch, CNBC, and The Motley Fool (to name a few).

Instructure is looking to hire a full-time DBA in Sandy, Utah. We've been
making waves in the higher education space for the last two years by
selling the first LMS which doesn't make teachers and students angry to use
(they actually think it's pretty cool), and now we're moving on to do the
same in the K-12 market. In other words, people love us and we're growing.
Fast. Our future is bright, but we need more than shades to get there.
That's where you come in.

people do than how nice they dress. So feel free to leave your dress
clothes at home; we do. Also, we have an open, collaborative work
environment. If you see something you disagree with, rock the boat.
Challenging ourselves makes us stronger.

We participate in eVerify.
