We are one of the fastest-growing education technology startups based in the UK.
Our team is on a mission to facilitate 10 million students get into the education they
deserve by 2025. We are doing this by helping students connect with colleges via
WhatsApp and helping them in issues instead of more traditional ways like emails
and online forms.
What product will you be working on?
The current student experience for making an application to a college and figuring
out what course to take is slow, ineffective and not fit for purpose. We flip this
problem on its head by enabling students to get all the knowledge they need at their
fingertips so that they can make better decisions faster.
Our product is a human-assisted chatbot that guides the students to figure out the
most optimal path for their success. It is fully salesforce native and some of our
recent projects have involved building LWC components for WhatApp chat, using
Einstein AI for sentiment analysis and developing a multi-tenant scripted chatbot in
What is in it for you?
We believe that Developers work best when they work in small mission-driven
teams and focus on customer problems. You will be given a lot of autonomy to figure
out ways with your colleagues on how best to solve those problems and we will
trust you to make some really important decisions.
We also believe in deep work and that working from home is the best way to
achieve our goals. We will provide you with the means to organise your home
workspace. We also believe that by investing in your continuous learning our
product will have an even more powerful impact on the lives of the students.
