Our energetic team of teachers, developers and recent graduates are based in super-comfy offices right in the centre of Bath.

  • Analysing and resolving technical problems.

  • Experience of building applications which integrate seamlessly with back-end systems
  • A basic understanding of data security and encryption

About you:

  • You are a problem-solver
  • You care about education, and you want to build a product that will make a difference to children’s lives
  • You enjoy working in a team
  • You are a fast learner and keen to develop skills across different areas
  • You are adaptable
  • You are pro-active, and you give things a fair shot – we get nervous of candidates who have jumped from job to job or are presented to us by an agency
