Who We Are:
Prosper is an education technology startup with offices in Sydney and London. We’ve been furiously building an ELT blended learning offering for Chinese kindergartens. At the same time we have been building relationships with our customers. Our product is being launched for the start of the new school term in China in September and we are growing our team for the sprint.
We have huge ambitions to improve children’s lives around the world through education, and we’d love you to be part of realising that ambition. We do this through delivering blended learning experiences using the power of intuitive well built technology that enable teachers to deliver quality education in the classroom: connecting them with their students and inspiring a lifelong love of learning.
Prosper’s customers are major progressive kindergarten groups in China and Japan, with plans to expand to other countries. Our corporate philosophy and cultural ethos is built on Growth Mindset - the fundamental belief that we are all capable of learning and growth through persistence, collaboration and being able to make mistakes no matter what our background. We love diversity, and celebrate you being you, and what unique awesomeness that will bring to our organisation.

Having a fast paced mind and a laser like focus to executing your tasks, while being across the broader suite of interdependencies will be an asset. We will encourage you to stretch yourself and take us on the journey with you as you find neat solutions to solve problems. You’re pretty relaxed and enjoy creating and learning new things. You want to do something that is bigger than you are, with other people who work hard and celebrate the wins and the falls together. You understand that work and life aren’t separate, and so do we, and we want you to harmoniously integrate both elements with us in a flexible, inclusive workplace.
