So what’s the job? 👀
You will deliver the Multiverse software engineering apprenticeship, working with highly engaged groups of young people as they start their careers in the software space.
If you love inspiring and teaching others about software engineering, get a buzz from seeing young people develop and learn new skills, and truly care about building the next generation of developers, this is the role for you.
What you will be doing:
- Teaching, mentoring and coaching your apprentices through their 18-month journey on the apprenticeship, turning them into the next generation of developers
- Delivering a mixture of face to face and online sessions with a cohort of apprentices
- Taking full responsibility for the progress that your cohort of young people make through their apprenticeship, getting to know their roles in detail and working with their line managers
Do I fit the bill? 🕵️
- Minimum of 2+ years experience
- You are completely passionate about teaching and love the detail of developing an effective learning experience
- You are a player-coach: you can provide guidance, support and encouragement harnessing your experience to support people to kick start their career in software development
- Bonus knowledge/experience in Node.js, React, Java or any object-oriented programme language.
- You believe in the principles of applied learning: it’s all about developing the knowledge, skills and behaviours in a way that can be used in a real context, straightaway
- You are a team player - part of the coach’s responsibility is to work with the team at Multiverse and clients to ensure apprentices are meeting the expectations of their employer and the qualification
- You are all about social mobility. Helping young people whatever their background to master the foundations of software development
What can I expect in terms of progression? 🚀
There are many paths you can choose to go down at Multiverse from being an Individual Contributor where you are a subject matter expert and getting more heavily involved in helping to develop the programme/ curriculum as the company continues to scale. Or if you are wanting to manage in the future there is a pathway to becoming a Team Lead where you will lead and build amazing coaching teams.

Multiverse, a tech startup with a social mission. They're building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training, to develop a diverse group of future leaders. Their impact focuses on three core areas: measuring potential beyond academics, delivering world-class job-focused training via applied learning, and helping diverse groups of young people build social capital through a thriving community.
They are one of the fastest growing businesses in Europe and also rapidly expanding in North America, working with over 300 clients including Facebook, Morgan Stanley, KPMG, Kantar, Citi and Microsoft.
They started 2021 with the UK’s largest ever EdTech funding round - a $44m Series B. Since then they've opened their New York office, and been awarded “Outstanding” by OFSTED (the UK government’s education regulator) across every category. In September 2021, they broke the funding record again with a $130m Series C raise.
They are looking for exceptional people to join them as they create something genuinely radical that will replace the way people think about accessing careers and how they learn.
