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.
