Front-End Developer – Early Learning at Scale
Social business startup: educating one billion children
At EIDU, we create a learning app for young children in poor areas where it’s hard to
get the high-quality education that all children deserve. Our vision is to educate these
children by building the next generation global edtech learning platform.
We believe that all children should be given the chance to reach their full intellectual
potential, however more than 600 million children in the world are not even learning
foundational skills like reading and basic math despite the majority of them going to
school. Our digital solution enables them to learn by themselves and
provides teachers with high quality teaching support. It works globally, even on the
cheapest smartphones and tablets.
We are developing the EIDU system in the toughest conditions we could find: with
more than 5,000 children in the largest urban informal settlements in Africa, located
in Nairobi, Kenya and we are on our way to scale to many different places in the
world. We collect data from all players, children, teachers, parents and school owners
and so have a vast, rich dataset, qualitative and quantitative.
