We are a brand new EdTech startup backed by the British Council and Blenheim Chalcot, the UK's leading digital venture builder. Our core offering is a free mobile English test that will help millions of people to unlock the potential that the English language gives them. (By 2020, two billion people will be using or learning English. That’s one in four people around the world!)

We are a small and dynamic team excited to positively impact the lives of millions of people by disrupting the English language assessment industry.
We are looking for a talented iOS software developer to help us reach millions of people around the world.

Our initial launch was Android-only, and delivers a 40-minute test on grammar, vocabulary, reading, and listening, with the option of purchasing a certificate at the end. Next up is speaking: we need to build real-time voice recognition and correction into our assessment, for any person with any accent anywhere on the planet.

We look forward to launching on iOS soon, and we need your help to continuously improve it!

Our technological stack is pretty open right now. iOS is authored in Swift, Android in Kotlin, and our (light and conventional) backend is written in Python. Our infrastructure is running on Heroku. We are early stage enough that nothing is set in stone, so anyone can make a case for using any technology they think would help us reach our goals more effectively.

Machine learning and data science are also anticipated to play a major role in our future as we scale to millions of downloads per year.
