ZEREN has partnered with Twinkl, an established EdTech business that is trusted by teaching communities around the world. They provide instant access to a complete range of teaching, planning and assessment materials to support learning at all ages and levels.

You could be the next Senior Software Engineer working on the Twinkl Create self-publishing application. This is an innovative solution that allows their clients to create their own tools to align with their teaching/learning needs.

If you want to see it in action, the Twinkl Create application is available to test out at: using a 'free' Twinkl account (requires sign-up but does not require payment).

Twinkl understands that great ideas aren't confined to an office. That's why their tech teams embrace a remote-friendly culture, giving you the flexibility to choose where you work best. Whether it's from their HQ in Sheffield, mainly remote or something in-between, they believe that your best work happens when you have the freedom to create your ideal workspace.

Your role

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work on the successful Twinkl Create product used by thousands of users already. You will be building new features to add to the already existing application as well as aiding in a continuous modernisation of the platform in line with the most up-to-date and functional technologies.

As well as this, there is a lot of work ongoing in embedding AI into the product so there is an opportunity to explore AI in this role to optimise its application.
