We are a non-profit based in London building software to transform the learning of children in reading, writing and numeracy. All in their own language, and at their own pace. We develop innovative pilot projects to find the best ways of bringing quality education to marginalised children. We work with partners to implement and scale technology-based learning initiatives that see children learning through our software. In Malawi, one such initiative, Unlocking Talent, is reaching over 100,000 children.

  • A keen interest and belief in technology as a catalyst for scaleable, quality education.
  • Ability to work independently, plan your own solutions to problems and iterate quickly.

Benefits
