We’re on a mission to provide equitable access to economic opportunity, for everyone.

We close critical skill gaps in the workforce through a new kind of apprenticeship that combines work and learning. We begin by recognizing high-potential individuals both inside and outside of a company's current workforce and then we create applied, guided and equitable learning programs, with measurable impact. Because we believe the world needs a better way to match its potential.

We work with over 1,500 leading companies including the likes of Microsoft, Citi and Just Eat to help solve their business-critical problems, and we’ve trained over 16,000 professional apprentices in the tech and data skills of the future. This is made possible by our global team who are driven to achieve a mission that matters, together.

Join Multiverse and help us set a new course for work.

The Opportunity

It’s an incredible time to join the Engineering team at Multiverse, UK’s first edtech unicorn, as we build an outstanding alternative to university. You have a real opportunity to impact the lives of 1,000s of people.

If you’re looking to solve complex and compelling engineering challenges in a collaborative environment and are motivated by having a significant, genuinely positive impact on people’s lives, then we would love to talk with you.

Our goal is to provide you with support and autonomy required for you to do the best work of your career. We want to create a environment where everyone can thrive.

You will join one of our domain teams where you will gain domain expertise and have the ability to own the delivery of meaningful change across the product breadth.

We share our learnings with the team in weekly informal training sessions and we enjoy “10% time” where we’re free to play with new technologies, contribute to open source or simply experiment to see what we can build. We practise collaboration and prototype new ideas through Hackathons.

You’ll solve real problems including:

  • How can we build a world-class admissions process that searches for intent and potential?

  • How can we improve the quality of our education while growing it internationally, at scale?

  • How do we engage and retain learners on our program to drive impact?

  • How can we blend peer support, coaching and AI to support our apprentices in achieving their goals?

  • How can we make our internal development experience more scalable and delightful?
