About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn computing and digital making.

In October 2015, we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest sustained, global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.

The role

We’re looking for a Marketing Manager to join our Communications and Marketing team and help us grow our community. The person taking up this role will provide essential support to the Director of Marketing and Communications in developing and implementing marketing campaigns across the organisation.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to develop both strategic and tactical campaigns. In this role, you will be heavily involved in campaign design, and you’ll also need to relish the challenge of rolling up your sleeves in implementation. You will be passionate about ensuring all our campaigns start with clear objectives and audience needs, and you’ll love evaluating the results and ROI to make improvements each time. You’ll be creative and enjoy taking ideas from concept through to execution. A natural project manager and team player, you’ll be responsible for content planning within the team, and you will support colleagues with their task pipelines and prioritisation. You’ll be highly collaborative and personable, and you’ll have a great eye for detail.

We strive to make the Foundation a place where talented people who care about our mission can do the best work of their careers. We have a flexible and collaborative approach to all aspects of our work. If you’re the right person for the job, we’ll make it work for you, and you can be confident that you’ll be working with an exceptional team.
