Company information

Sumdog is an online games-based maths & English learning service used by millions of children in the UK and US. We are part of an exciting ed-tech revolution that captures a detailed understanding of each child's strengths and weaknesses to tailor their learning using the principles of mastery learning. The results are spectacular. Research shows primary school students that use our service regularly, progress significantly faster than those that don't.

Sumdog is a small but rapidly growing high-impact company that has just received a substantial investment from Nesta and Scottish Enterprise. Our mission is to close the attainment gap by helping all children reach their full potential. Our particular strength is the way we engage even the most disenchanted students.

Our substantial customer base and the complexity of our service - from the algorithms that adapt to individual students through to the big data we collect for teacher reports - mean that we face similar challenges to the internet giants. For many people, this makes us the perfect employer. We're on an exciting trajectory, both small enough to listen to our employees, and big enough to be intellectually interesting. The work we do is both rewarding and valuable.
