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 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 new skills.
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 about computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018–2020 strategy.
Our digital products and web services are used by millions of people all over the world. As part of our ambitious plans to expand our reach and impact, we are now looking for a Senior Software Developer to join our team.
You will work collaboratively as part of a team of product owners, UX designers, and developers to create digital products and services that have a positive impact on the lives of young learners. You’ll need to have excellent technical skills, with an appetite to learn what you don’t know, and a commitment to making a difference to our users. You’ll join an Agile development team that works both in Cambridge and remotely around the UK. We use collaboration tools like GitHub and Slack to communicate effectively, and we encourage pair programming.
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.
