Sydney, New South Wales, Australia · Engineering


About us

We're a global technology leader in personalised maths education and you will join a dedicated, high performing team with a mission to rethink the way we teach and learn maths.

Our adaptive learning technology is already helping students and teachers across the globe. But we also understand we have only made the first steps towards our vision of a highly engaging and extraordinary learning experience. Imagine a world where every student gets delivered a learning experience based on their ability, their learning style and their progress.

We created Mathspace because we believe that technology can help every single student to excel in maths, by providing the right help at the right time.

The role

You’ll be working closely with the founders, content and design team to engineer and scale our adaptive learning platform to millions of users. Our platform is designed to cater to both the needs of teachers, who use our dynamic mathematics content to create and deliver lessons, as well as students who are able to use handwriting recognition to input their answers.

We're doubling paid users every year, and our engineering team is growing fast. You'll be joining a team of currently 15 engineers (split on frontend and backend) that will grow to 20 over the first half of 2018. Our Sydney office is about 35 people total now and we have maintained the startup environment as we grow.

As a backend engineer on our team, you’ll have a chance to help decide on the choice of technology we use, as well how we design and deliver the platform to our users.
