About Zen Educate

Zen Educate is an online platform that has saved UK schools over £1M to date in supply teaching and recruitment costs. 

Using our 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 or arrange interviews with. Think Uber for supply teachers. 

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.

The product delivery team is a crucial part of how Zen is transforming the supply and recruitment experience for schools and generating 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 the product for years to come.

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

  • 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 using background workers such as Sidekiq
  • Strong bias to test-driven development & test automation

  • Knowledge of deploying to and managing cloud environments like Heroku
  • 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?

  • Convenient Central London office with perks like fresh fruit, yoga classes, bike parking,  showers and an on-site gym and café

Additional info about the role:

  • Growing company of 80 people and a product delivery team of 10 with 7 full-stack developers, designer, and 2 PMs
  • We recently built a React Native app for our teachers and plan on building out features there and extending it to schools (who otherwise tend to use desktop more)
