Job Description

We need a Senior Data Scientist who can help our development team discover the truth about user behaviour. You will have experience in a software development context, with excellent mathematical and problem solving skills. You will have a logical mind and deep understanding of evidence and biases. You will collaborate with our development team to create research questions that you’ll then find answers to. You will perform complex analysis to synthesise the evidence, then translate this into actionable insights that are well communicated and easily understood.

Our mission is to make it easy for teachers to create interactive games and printables for their students. Our site automates the process of resource design, so teachers can simply enter the content that is appropriate for their class – a list of keywords, definitions, questions or images. Wordwall produces the content in over 60 different templates; for example, gameshow quizzes, crosswords, labelled diagrams and arcade games. It seeks to disrupt the publisher-driven model of paid-for “professionally” made educational content by putting high-quality content creation in the hands of teachers and making that teacher-made content freely accessible through our online community.

We are a small, but growing, team who work remotely across the world. We are obsessive about using data to build a better product. Our 30 million monthly users mean there’s always more to find out. We’ve got a product that works and we’re building for the long-term. We want people who want to stick around, grow with us and help make games-based learning accessible to all.

We are an equal opportunities employer. We support flexible working arrangements - full or part time.
