VP Product

London, England, United Kingdom · Product

Description

Join our mission. To make every kid feel like a hero...

...To bring coding down to earth with a KAPOW! Making it messy. And creative. And cool. To show
mums, dads and grandparents that tech-time doesn’t have to mean screen-time. That skills they learned in school – like sewing, drawing or making rockets out of cardboard tubes – are all still part of the story. That anyone, and everyone, can do this. And that ‘this’ can be whatever you want it to be.

We’ve always believed that technology is the future . And not just for the coding wizards or the
spaceship engineers. For all of us, big and little. So back in 2012, we got to thinking about the ‘little’ part – how can we motivate kids to learn the skills they’ll need to shape tomorrow?

We started at our kitchen table in East London, experimenting with different make-it-yourself kits that use everything from coding to electronics. We realized that kids learn more when they feel inspired to make something amazing. And so, our first Tech Will Save Us kits were born.

Our range of digital and physical toys combine education with play to help kids find their superpower. Teaching kids about tech doesn’t start with a university diploma in quantum-computing science. It starts with a ‘PING’, the lighting up of a bulb and a smile from the world’s newest creator.

Now you can find the award-winning Tech Will Save Us kits in over 97 countries and in over 4000
stores
including Target, Best Buy, Nordstrom and John Lewis. Leading brands such as Google, Code
Club, The Prince’s Trust, BBC Microbit and Disney seek us out to collaborate on innovative products that reach kids.

Bring your Superpower to Tech Will Save Us and help our team of innovative engineers, product designers, marketers, educators, content producers, support reps, financiers, sales people and user experience specialists empower the next generation.
