Wordwall (1-10 Employees, N/A 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
We need a senior front-end developer with visual flair and a keen eye for UX and game design. You’ll really excel in making exciting games and an easy-to-use interface for our educational website and work with our team of UX designers and illustrators to make it happen.
Our mission is to make it easy for teachers to create interactive games and worksheets 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 team with big ambitions who work remotely across the world. Our 35 million monthly users are rapidly proliferating. 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.
