Description Who We Are Bridge International Academies is the world s largest and fastest -growing chain of primary and pre -primary schools with more than 500 academies and 100,000 pupils in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Liberia. We democratize the right to succeed by giving families living in poverty access to the high -quality education that will allow their children to live a very different life. We leverage experts, data, and technology in order to standardize and scale every aspect of quality education delivery, from how and where academies are built to how teachers are selected and trained, and how lessons are delivered and monitored for improvement. We are vertically -integrated, tech -enabled, and on our way to profitability. Bridge expects to continue rapid expansion in 2018 across existing markets. The Bridge Offer Roughly 2.7 billion people live on less than $2 /day. In their communities, there is a huge gap between the education offered and the needs of the population. Too often the schools available to them fail to deliver for these families. The quality offered results in the average pupil from our communities in East Africa failing to reach proficiency in primary school and on average fail the primary exit exams that are critical to their development. Teachers are unresponsive and occasionally abusive, and fees are often unaffordable. Even government schools can cost families a significant amount of money after all the additional fees are added up. With 47% of classroom teaching time lost due to teacher absenteeism or neglect, 55% of families in our communities end up choosing private schools instead, but then fear for the stability and sustainability of their choice as many schools close after only a few years of service. Both the government schools and the private schools tend to lack well -conceived scope and sequences, instructional materials, student achievement data, and the capacity to react to that data. Families are actively searching for a better academic alternative. Enter Bridge International Academies. As of September 2017, Bridge operates more than 500 academies, serving roughly 100,000 pupils in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, India, and Liberia. Bridge utilises a scripted -learning education methodology coupled with 'big data' (all teachers have tablets for instruction, assessment, and data -gathering) that allows us to make curriculum a little better every day. With plans to enrol ten million students ten years from now, Bridge International Academies offers a tremendous opportunity to grow with one of the world s most exciting, ambitious, and socially conscious companies, with leadership roles available across a number of competencies and geographies. Tech at Bridge Technology plays a critical role at Bridge in enabling us to provide education at massive scale and low cost - it's one of the key elements that gives us the ability to deliver what no one else can. Tech spans several key functions, from the hardware and software that our academies use to run all aspects of teaching and management, including mobile payments, to the systems that enable our country headquarters to manage massive local operations, to the data backbone that informs all of our strategic and tactical decision making. It s a lot of custom software development and a lot of back office systems. We've got a ridiculously ambitious mission at Bridge, and it's a place where passionate technologists have a chance to directly change the world. No kidding. About the Role Tech at Bridge is a highly complex, vertically -integrated affair, with systems supporting an ever expanding range of functions and countries, and crossing between software development, IT operations, academy operations, and logistics /supply chain. At the same time, our teams run lean and things change fast - governments make policy decisions that affect us, launching new countries is a frenetic affair, and we still need to evolve our core technology offering.

You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand. Every dollar you spend is a dollar our customers, who live on less than $2 a day, will have to pay for. A customer advocate - Our customers - these families living on less than $2 a day per person - never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). You would never shrink back from shaking a parent s hand or picking up a crying child, no matter what the person was wearing or looked like. Every decision you make considers their customer benefit, experience, and value. A life -long learner - You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you ve missed things or failed today.
