Company information

Sumdog is an online games-based maths learning service used by tens of thousands of schools and millions of children worldwide. We are world leaders when it comes to engagement and one of a handful of companies that are revolutionising education by tailoring questions to student ability. Our students are working hard at mastering questions that are appropriate to their level. The results are spectacular. Recent research shows primary school students that use our product regularly, progress three times faster than those that don't.

Sumdog has a big heart. We are also a small but rapidly growing company that has just received a substantial investment. Despite our small size, our large customer base and the complexity of our product, from the algorithms that adapt to individual students through to the big data we collect for teacher reports, means that we face similar challenges to the internet giants. For many people, this makes us the perfect employer. We're on an exciting trajectory but we're still small enough to listen to our employees, big enough to be technically interesting and the work we do is both rewarding and valuable.

We're looking for a passionate graduate to join our tester team and help shape the future of education.
