We want this person to have several hours overlap with the rest of the data team so we’re hiring from anywhere Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and -6 hours of GMT (London to Chicago). We’re not hiring from places that require a graveyard shift to make the overlap happen.

About the team

Our Data team is made up of a team lead, analytics engineer, data analyst (you!), and user researcher. We work closely with our product, commercial, and operations teams to provide the reporting and insights for internal decision makers. We are also working to provide our students and educators data and insights within the Aula platform.

Our virtues are what makes Aula as an organisation unique.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion should not be mistaken with building an organisation where 8 billion people would thrive. We lean into what makes Aula unique: we’re building an organisation where high performing people are silly ambitious about improving education - at scale.

We judge our virtues by what we do, not what we say. 

Our virtues are * 🚀 Silly Ambitious * 🔍 Uncomfortably Focused * 🗣 Transparent by Default

A fair chance

Every role in the Aula team is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the superpowers and potential of everyone; regardless of race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other difference that makes you, well, you.

More than just encouraging your application, we're committed to conscious inclusion that (we hope) cultivates an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. It’s this philosophy that drives us towards our mission, and we open our doors to those who share these motivations.
