About Koru Kids

Koru Kids is building the world’s best childcare service, starting in London. We’re making it easier and more affordable for families to access high quality childcare. If you want the opportunity to do irreplaceable work on a unique problem alongside people that will challenge, inspire & scare you; keep reading.

About the team

We have a radically transparent and kind team culture. To say people at Koru Kids are passionate about our mission is not PR bull, we all very much care about helping parents reintegrate into the workplace (especially mums) and about improving the face of child development. We’re committed to working with integrity, doing the right thing and building a company we are truly proud of. We’re growing super fast but we also want to make sure that we are building a company on really solid foundations.

About the role

We’re looking for someone with a strong background in UX/Product Design with some Product Ownership or Product Management experience/interest, who can help us discover which problems to solve, and then design solutions to those problems.

Instead of an endless product roadmap, we run short development cycles to test assumptions and make smart decisions quickly. You’ll work closely with engineers and operations to find and build creative solutions for business problems and make sure we’re delivering the most value to our customers. We all want to create a compelling and beautiful experience, but we all favour progress over perfection.

The sorts of problems you’ll be tasked with solving are:

We hope you’ll agree, these aren’t your run-of-the mill tech problems.

About you

You're a very strong critical thinker who can rationally prioritise which problems to solve as well as discover how to solve them. You consistently put both users and data before your ego. You have lots to teach others about the value of design, and are equally willing to learn from those around you. You welcome and give honest feedback, especially when it’s hard to do. You’ll seek to create incredibly useful & engaging experiences, and will know how to balance perfection with progress & learning.

Must have knowledge/experience:

Must have behaviours:

If we had to sum it up in three words, they’d be “Smart, Kind, Creative”.

What you’ll be asked to do:

How you will be measured:

Ultimately, it comes down to two things, in order of importance:

  1. Your impact on your OKRs
  2. Your contribution to Koru Kids culture


Competitive salary (£60-85k) and generous share options (0.1% - 1%). Very flexible working (including remote). Highly subsidised childcare (a Koru Kids nanny for half price).

We work from a beautiful co-working space near Old St in central London. The office has showers, bike storage, free snacks and drinks, and a programme of social events.
