Sparx is developing a revolutionary new technology for the classroom that is redefining the limits of what young people can achieve.
Our platform for Maths uses custom built content and a powerful, data-driven mobile framework to deliver a tailored set of exercises, games and incentives to the student.
Here at Sparx, we’re working flat out to investigate scientifically what makes the best learning experience. By using real-time data to drive an evidence based approach to education, we’re developing an extraordinary new technology for the classroom that is redefining the limits of what young people can achieve and is helping us figure out what works (and what doesn’t) in the field of education.
Our platform for Maths uses custom built content and a powerful, data-driven mobile framework to deliver a tailored set of exercises, games and incentives for students.
We’re looking for people with a real passion for education and a belief in the power of technology to improve it. Things move fast at Sparx so we need people who assume that excellence is a given and who are ambitious, creative, intelligently sceptical and highly knowledgeable. People who want a challenge; people who want to make a difference.
Why are we exciting?
We believe that we are at the start of a revolution that is going to redefine education as we know it - and you can be part of it! We're doing something that's never been done before and everyone involved is directly shaping what Sparx becomes.
Things move really fast here which definitely keeps you on your toes. We're continually exploring new methods and ideas, so what Sparx is evolves on a daily basis! We work on a 'fail fast' approach, rapidly prototyping, testing and tackling new challenges every day.
Life at Sparx
We’re about living life, not putting it on hold. Our generous benefits include substantial holiday leave and company pension.
We have a range of on-site facilities for all employees to use free of charge. We have a netball court, a five-a-side football pitch, a running track, a pool table, a 2012 Olympic table tennis table, as well as a gym with classes throughout the day. Our café serves delicious, local, and organic food. Did we mention it’s all free?
On top of this you’ll have great views from your office window of the foothills of Dartmoor and boats out at sea on the horizon – with the beach just 20 minutes away. Plus, we’re constantly organising events and activities to support our charities, and to socialise. Our work is serious but we’re all about having fun while we do it!
