    Our mission


    Our mission is to change the world of education recruitment. Schools spend over £2bn a year on agency staff, with over £600m per year of that spent on fees that go straight to the recruitment agencies. So far, we've saved UK schools over £3m in supply teaching recruitment costs, and that number grows every day, meaning the funding can be put back into education within the schools. 


    Using our online platform, schools have access to hundreds of profiles of fully vetted teachers and support staff, who they can book at a click of a button. Think Uber for teachers.


    We are well-funded by high-profile investors and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London's most prominent tech companies.


    Looking to make a difference?


    You’ll be joining Zen in a key position. The product delivery team is a crucial part of how Zen will help both transform the supply and recruitment experience for schools and generate the savings the education system needs. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to apply themselves for a great cause and with great responsibility and autonomy to shape our product and development for years to come.

    Who we are looking for


    A talented engineer looking to take their skills to the next level by joining a small, high-performing product delivery team in an agile environment.


    What you’ll be doing


    Picking up, owning and deploying new features from scratch across the web and native apps with react native

    Reviewing PRs and helping us improve our ways of working

    Investigating and tackling new challenges and responding to bugs

    Writing high quality, well-tested code


    Ideal experience


    Experience with ReactJS, Javascript, HTML, and CSS

    Experience with Ruby, Ruby on Rails or equivalent OO language

    Experience refactoring legacy code and considering trade-offs around technical debt

    A top performer that wants to be part of a high-performing, motivated team

    Growth mindset — dedicated to growing your skills as a professional

    Passion for work with a positive social impact


    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

    Flexible working including working remotely

    Fun-loving, tight-knit team solving a problem that makes a difference


    The team and work


    A growing company of around 100 people and a product delivery team of 12 with 8 full-stack developers, 2 designers, and 2 PMs

    We have a React Native app for our teachers with many valuable features to build including a native app for schools (who otherwise tend to use desktop more)

    Every improvement you make goes directly to saving schools money, paying teachers more and ultimately helping children get the best start they can


    Diversity and inclusion


    We welcome applicants with diverse backgrounds and different experiences and perspectives — just like the staff who teach through Zen and the children at the schools we work with. We believe in hiring the best people from the widest pool and creating an inclusive atmosphere with a culture where people’s voices are heard and all our team can look forward to coming to work.


    We value and respect all differences in all people (seen and unseen). We believe in an environment with equal access to career development opportunities and actively encourage applications from BAME candidates.
