Do you want to help create the next big thing in technology? Work with some of the sharpest and most inventive minds out there? Be part of a step-change in education? Then come and join us at Sparx.
We’re an exciting education technology company using a powerful combination of real-time data, technology and daily classroom trials to scientifically investigate how students learn. We take the resulting evidence and insights to develop a tablet based learning system that is proven to work. The Sparx system understands the unique way in which students learn and delivers a personalised educational experience as a result, with the potential to raise educational attainment and redefine people’s futures. Our ambition? Simple. To take the guess work out of education, and, by harnessing the power of technology, to help each and every child realise their full potential.
Life at Sparx
Working at Sparx is more than just a job. It’s a unique opportunity to be part of a growing organisation where applying your knowledge and ideas can make a lasting difference. Through our graduate positions and internship programme, we take the quickest, most inquisitive minds and challenge them to make a real impact.
There’s no doubt that things move fast here. We accept nothing as truth and search relentlessly for better methods, testing our ideas against data, improving and refining how the system works for students. You’ll be straight into this action, tackling tough, complex problems and working as part of our top team of scientists, mathematicians, programmers and educators to make Sparx something truly extraordinary.
But it’s not just about the work. Based in Exeter, a thriving student city down in beautiful Devon, you’ll have Dartmoor national park and a surf-ready beach to explore, as well as benefiting from all the great perks we offer our team. We’ve got on-site sports pitches, a pool table, free gym and leisure facilities and a café that serves free, organic and delicious food.
