The opportunity

UK schools spend over £1.3bn per year on covering short term absences with supply teachers. The current model is exclusively reliant on agencies that charge a massive commission and are terribly inefficient — everything is paper and phone-call based.

We are consolidating this analogue, fragmented, and inefficient marketplace onto a digital platform. In the process we’ll pull hundreds of millions of waste out of the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.

We are well-funded by high-profile investors, have had significant early traction, and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London’s most prominent tech companies.

Your chance to make a difference

This is your chance to join a tech startup on the ground floor. As an early employee, you will play a significant role in the development of the company and have the opportunity for rapid career progression and learning.

What we are looking for

  • A top performer that wants to be part of a high-performing, motivated team
  • Growth mindset – dedicated to improving your skills as a professional
  • Passion for building great products and companies that have a positive social impact
  • Strong bias to action

What you’ll be doing

  • Shape the product roadmap for key projects
  • Run an agile delivery team with both design and engineering to deliver high-quality projects
  • Conduct open-ended customer research with both teachers and schools to inform what we should build
  • Run user tests with prototypes and the live service to find areas for improvement and refine designs
  • Work with internal stakeholders to gather and define requirements
  • Define and report on key metrics for projects
  • Communicate the product roadmap with the internal team and to our customers working with marketing
  • Get your hands dirty. Like any true start-up, no two weeks will be the same and a general interest in ‘mucking in’ and just getting the job done is crucial

What’s in it for you?

  • Work that you want to talk about
  • Competitive salary
  • Ownership in the company
  • 25 days of holiday
  • Convenient Central London office with perks like fresh fruit, yoga classes, bike parking, showers and an on-site gym and café
