EdTech start-up

Chief Technical Officer (CTO)  & Co-Founder

Our attitude will determine our altitude!

​Once in a while a ‘first-mover’ product, idea and vision in its infancy pops up to attract those visionary, ambitious and capable enough to support it and make it an outstanding social, educational and commercial success.  Our product can accomplish this; with exceptional talent in the right places we will achieve it.


We’re building a scalable social-education platform with exponential growth that develops and accelerates the academic attainment of all learners.  Quite distinct from other learning platforms, we're creating an unrivalled global network of formal and passive educators (to include employees of corporate businesses, students, parents and teachers) using a social networking model while laying the foundation to advertise and sell products and services.


The company’s vision has been mapped through an evolving business plan, roadmap and semi-working prototype.  However, to be successful we are looking to build a team of exceptionally talented individuals excited by the prospect of creating a business with huge potential to become a global education social network.




As CTO and a core member of the Founder’s Team, you will take the lead on shaping our unique product so that it meets our goal of attracting significant investment.  You will translate through product creation and demonstration to potential investors the phenomenal scalability and commercial potential of our platform.  You will ensure that our product is fit for each of its launch stages in the key market areas.  You will embrace our goal of creating a business of global educators and be fully committed to our goal of building healthy returns for our investors, with an IRR of at least x20 by Y5.


​​​​​Are you an accomplished technologist capable of building intuitive customer-focused interfaces that solve major problems?  Are you energised by creative leaders seeking to match their vision with technologists who are fanatical about their craft and talented enough to translate a product from MVP into one capable of attracting significant investment for a global market?  Are you ready to commit to building an education social network that improves the lives of all its users, while offering you and investors healthy reward through equity linked to successful outcomes?  If you’re any of these things, please send your CV to michael.watson@candidateiskey.co.uk so that we can further understand your background and experience.
