Use your software engineering skills to improve education. Our teaching and learning platform is used by more than 500,000 students in over 1000 schools, across 112 countries. Our tech stack is Python, Django and VueJS.

You’ll find our engineering culture to be diverse and highly collaborative, with cross-functional teams utilising Scrum, kanban, and pair programming.
