One of the countries most exciting Edu-Tech companies is looking to take their company to even another level again. This role offers a chance to build and lead a team whilst working in one of the most exciting spaces and cultures in the city.

In this role the title Tech doesn’t just mean software. You will be required to be passionate about excellent product design, a user-friendly experience, data transparency, and access, and most importantly, being a strong internal cultural voice for the power of technology within the organization.

On the job, you will:

  • Develop new features and maintain existing ones across all company systems.
  • Manage and oversee a consistent agile development process with a strong velocity to keep up with new product development needs.
  • Keep our codebase at a high test coverage rate and near-perfect uptime.
  • Build a strong UX / product function that drives new product development and existing product optimization
  • Build a strong data analysis function that allows other teams to collect, access, and analyze data to improve their job function.

You’ll need:

  • The ability to hire and manage a team.
  • Comfort running an agile process and communicating with stakeholders, even without a product manager.
  • Experience in wireframes and knowledge of Product Design
  • 1+ years of experience in Design programmes such as Sketch/Azure or InVision
  • 3+ years of Ruby on Rails experience.
  • 1+ years of systems administration experience, including managing servers on a platform such as Heroku
  • Fluency with data and databases. Easily write SQL and work with complex spreadsheets.
  • Fluency with at least one front-end Javascript framework, preferably Vue.js.
  • Fluency in HTML, SCSS.
  • Expert in a modern Git workflow, with issues, pull requests, CI, and code review.

You’ll stand out if you:

  • Have a design, product management, or data background.
  • Have a strong passion for education and/or teaching.
  • Love contributing to non-tech areas of the business, such as new product development and design, UX, or analytics.
