About Springpod

Springpod is an online platform that connects school students with STEM employers. Students have the ability to explore career paths, interact with company representatives and apply for work experience and apprenticeships before they leave school.

We are empowering the next generation of Henry Fords, Mark Zuckerbergs and Elon Musks with the skills and connections to successfully launch their career.

We are entering an exciting period of growth and are looking to hire an ambitious Node.js developer to lead the development of our API and database architecture. Attitude, drive and communication skills are as important as technical skills and experience. The role is based in our central London office, not far from Borough Market (a popular destination for our fortnightly team lunches).

A small team means you will be given a large amount of responsibility from day one and need to be the sort of person that loves taking ownership of an exciting product that is launching the careers of thousands of young people.
