Project Details


Description and Impact

We founded our organization to harness the energy and skills of teachers worldwide in overcoming limited resources as a barrier to quality education. In 2017 we aim to have 400 UK and US teachers supporting 2000 teachers across 10 countries. 

Experteers will work alongside our CTO product owner to take our web platform to the next level by: 

  1. Improving UX. 
  2. Helping build a back end to help us manage growing numbers of users. 
  3. Implementing an a/b framework. 
  4. Integrating a monitoring and evaluation dashboard which we aim to build with mapbox based on a tableau dataset. 

Our site is built in Laravel, with React.js and we have integrated SalesForce to help support our growth. We use GitHub and scrum methodology. 

Deliverables

This project will position our organization to move from our current 200 fellows/ year to having 1000 fellows/ year by 2020. 

This project will be considered a success when we see a direct impact in terms of our recruitment performance and how effectively we are presenting and our impact. 

We take an agile scrum approach to planning and development so specific outcomes will depend on when Experteers join us and for how long. ​

We are a fast growing social enterprise and we have a footprint across 10 countries. We have built a lean operating model and we will happily share with you how we have done that. 

We enjoy working together and like to think of ourselves as a movement of globally engaged teachers.
