About the job

Were people on a mission to help schools use data more effectively to save teachers time and improve student outcomes. At the moment data is more of a burden than a benefit to teachers. Schools are increasingly required to store vast amounts of information on attendance, behaviour and assessment, which takes teachers hours and hours a week to input and often isnt used effectively to improve student performance.Weve built a great system that improves the input, analysis and communication of school information, saving teachers days of precious time and allowing them to target student interventions more effectively to improve the outcomes of hundreds of thousands of children. Imagine taking the register on your iPad, then having the system instantly text all parents whose child was not in school asking them to confirm their absence by texting the school back. Easy.Since our launch five years ago, weve raised venture capital from top-tier, socially-minded investors, expanded in three countries, and are now working with thousands of schools, helping them to improve outcomes for hundreds of thousands of students. We care about our social goals as much as our business targets and want to make a lasting, positive impact across the education sector.
