Part Time
We're on a mission to build the Uber of Tutoring! Booking tutors is confusing, hit-and-miss, and usually too expensive. We have the solution and are ready to scale this across the UK and then globally.

We are actively looking for a talented, experienced full-stack developer to come on board as CTO to head up the development of our mobile app.

Milestones we have hit:
- Revenue generating
- Business and operations team hired
- Built automated an automated logistics system (we are growing using this but will replace with the App once it's built)
- Proven the business model
- Retained long-term clients
- Implemented and iterated our product offering

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking for the responsibility of building an innovative application and be part of our journey to scale across the UK and globally.

You’ll be joining pre-investment which is a huge opportunity to get in early as you’ll have stock options which will likely grow exponentially in value once we’ve begun scaling the UK.

We are clear on the App features and will share this with candidates during the application process.
