About Micro:bit Educational Foundation
We're recruiting for developers!
We have a number of openings advertised but if you can't see a position that's quite right for you please do still get in touch at [email protected] to let us know what you're looking for.
Our vision is to inspire every child to create their best digital future. We are enabling children around the world to get creative with technology and invent in school, in clubs and at home! The micro:bit is a handheld, fully programmable computer that was rolled out across the UK in 2016 - one micro:bit to every year 7. It’s 70 times smaller than the original BBC Micro computers used in schools in the early 1980s, and now it has built-in sensors, an LED display and a Bluetooth radio, so it's instantly interactive. Started by the BBC and a great team of partners, the Micro:bit Educational Foundation is a non-profit organisation continuing the micro:bit programme and bringing it to schools and children around the world.
We are recruiting for our small, but ambitious, team who are passionate about bringing the joy of computer programming to every child on the planet. We don't have offices and run everything online with people located across many time zones. The Foundation is incredibly busy place to work but we are very flexible. We are open to part time contracts and job shares.
We sometimes will state a salary range in the job spec but often we don't, especially when we are looking for a unique candidate. To be fair to every applicant we won't disclose a range unless it is stated on the job advert.
As we are always looking for brilliant people we often won't place a time frame on recruiting. Unless we are overwhelmed by applicants or we have found the right person. Once we have decided to close the recruitment we shall announce the closing date on our normal communications channels - http://www.microbit.org/contact/.
If you share our passion for the BBC micro:bit but we don't have the right opening for you then check out all these other great ways to get involved with the Foundation http://www.microbit.org/guide/get-involved/
