Job Description

We’re looking for a Javascript / Games Developer (preferably a expert in instructional design or edtech) based in London to work with two co-founders on a creative and pioneering code education game, starting on a 3 month contract. You'll be part of a social enterprise business which is gaining huge momentum globally, working full-time, with the view towards becoming a core, permanent developer on the team.

We're looking for someone highly creative, open and reliable, and as motivated as us to make this unique game a huge success.

Product: https://eraseallkittens.com/

(currently 45-60 minutes gameplay content)

Your role:

Applying Javascript (Node/Backbone) to help design and implement levels and educational content

Working on the overall direction of the product ­- learning content, gameplay, features to include, etc.

Helping to invent an effective way to teach JavaScript to children aged 8+ (collaborating with others, e.g. the Director of Education, Code Club)

Why build a career with Erase All Kittens:

Code education is a new and exciting area, which is currently booming. You will be working on a unique, highly creative product in a new market, which has already been invested in and is gaining momentum globally - the first coding tool that teaches young children professional languages, and successfully inspires both boys and girls to code.

You will be working with people who are passionate about games and encouraging children to become creators rather than consumers of technology. Since we're a social enterprise business, we have a lot of support from many highly respected organisations and individuals.

Solely through word-of-mouth, E.A.K. is being played in 145 countries - in schools and in homes. We aim to bring coding into the mainstream and to show children how to create their own levels and simple websites, using HTML, CSS and Javascript.

We're a small, creative team and everyone who works with us has an equal amount of creative input. We work at EdSpace, a co-working space in Hoxton, London.
