You are ready to be scrappy, resourceful, admit when you do not know the answer, and go and find it. You want to shake the tree, rather than look for the lowest hanging fruit.
You want to work at F4S because you realised how school was so disconnected from the real world. You believe that there is a better way to make kids excited about their future and help them enjoy and fulfilling productive lives.
You believe that schools can use technology to change what they do from the inside-out. You have exciting ideas to bring to the table to help us see things differently and do better. I look forward to working with you.

You will be part of a small team of passionate developers who love to create scalable, thoughtful solutions, not band-aids. We encourage and expect our teammates to pitch big ideas and collaborate to solve complex problems.
At our core, we are developing meaningful and direct connections between professionals, teachers, and young people, in particular those from more disadvantaged areas. Every sprint we work to refine those core
features and principles while creating new features that help simplify, and add value to engagements.
Our platform for young people aged 6-18, the Educator Service, provides a GPS system with recommendations to guide educators and young people to search for, and request professionals to offer inspirational engagements, which open the minds of children across the UK. Like amazon and booking.com but with people rather than books or hotels...
Evolved with over five years of experience, the platform includes a recommendation engine, which guides the educator and young people to select the most appropriate professional to help them take steps along their journey to fulfilling lives.
Our second major application is our young-person-facing iOS app which offers a
barrier-free path to providing access to professionals by young people.
Our third and arguably most powerful service are our deep analytics services, which provide a high and low level oversight of our engagements to a variety of stakeholders from parent to government.
We are hugely ambitious for F4S and our strategy is to deepen and broaden our coverage across the UK, so it is a strategy for growth.
We are a small team based in London and Scotland. Whilst time would be spent at one of our offices, we are also open to blended home/office working.
We believe that physical, and emotional well-being is directly related to cognitive performance, so we support and encourage planning your work schedule around well-being escapes.
