Our mission is to provide life-changing tuition to all.
MyTutor is the UK’s leading online platform for one-to-one learning, and we’re on a mission to improve the educational outcomes of thousands of young people. We’re building a future where access to high quality learning is stress-free for those who can afford it, and funded for those who can’t.
One-to-one tuition is one of the most powerful ways to improve pupils’ grades, confidence and life chances. Yet it remains out of reach for many. Our handpicked community of tutors work online with students from all walks of life, raising results on average by one whole grade. Since the Covid-19 and all the disruption to education, we’ve worked with the government to provide safe and reliable tuition to more students than ever. We’re proud to have worked with over 650 schools across the UK, and our tutors have given over a million lessons.
Since the pandemic, we’ve scaled up and kept a working environment that encourages collaboration and support. We always prioritise our team’s development and wellbeing, remotely for some, and in an office at times for anyone who wants to use it. You can take a break in the monthly company Fika, face your fears and sweat it out at a climbing session on Tuesdays, or get creative (competitive?) at the monthly tech online board games social. We have regular company events as well, and there are chances every week to sit down with someone for a cuppa and a chat.
Our legacy tech stack is a Java/JSF, MySQL backend hosted in AWS, while the more recent services are Spring Boot apps with PostgreSQL and Kafka also in play. Our front end is transitioning to React.js. We operate in multi-disciplinary agile squads, each owning their own part of the platform. We’ve invested a lot of effort in making sure our squads can operate nimbly and own their own destiny and have a modern CI/CD pipeline.
Working in an agile, multi-disciplinary team will no doubt require some flexibility and support in areas that might not be one’s specialty, so our main prerequisite is an enthusiasm for solving interesting problems through software.
MyTutor is committed to creating an inclusive workplace and we have set up our own EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) committee who host regular events to make sure we live up to those values. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer, and all applicants will be considered.
