Position: Front end development engineer

Location: Santa Clara, Ca


Chegg located in Santa Clara, Ca is the premier nationwide supplier
of textbook rentals at colleges in the U. S. We are very well funded
by top tier VC firms like Foundation and Kleiner. We are growing
rapidly providing college students a much needed service. Chegg
already has a network of distribution at over 4,000 campuses. Chegg is
a textbook rental startup that lets college students rent books for a
fraction of the price they’d normally pay at their campus bookstores.
After identifying the books they need on the website, Chegg sends
students their textbooks within eight business days. Once they’re done
with the books at the end of the term, students simply toss them in a
pre-paid box and ship them back to Chegg. We also plant a tree for
every book you rent. More than 20 million trees a year are destroyed
to make books! Renting helps make sure we get the most out of our
resources, and by planting a tree for every book that’s rented,
together we’re giving a little back to Mother Nature. So far, we’ve
funded over 100 acres of trees. That’s 100 football fields or 25 city
blocks of worth! Take advantage of this outstanding opportunity
