About us

The CoderDojo Foundation is a Dublin-based educational charity that works to give every child the opportunity to learn how to code and create with technology. We do this through supporting the volunteer-led CoderDojo movement. Founded in July 2011, the movement is based on open-source principles, meaning that anyone anywhere in the world can start a Dojo. Clubs (Dojos) run all over the world on a regular basis, giving young people between the ages of 7 and 17 the opportunity to learn how to build websites, apps, programs, and games, and to explore technology. There are now more than 1750 active Dojos in 75 countries reaching 45,000 young people regularly.

In May 2017, we merged with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK-based charity that has the mission to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. Together with Raspberry Pi, we represent one of the largest, sustained global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2018-2020 strategy.

The CoderDojo Foundation staff is a team of fifteen people based in Dublin. Our offices are in Dogpatch Labs, a co-working space in the city centre, where we also run a Dojo for local young people twice a month. We are known for playing card games over lunch. If you are looking to have a real-world impact, then this is the organisation and role for you. Find more information about our team here.

The role

We are looking for an exceptional Senior Community Manager to execute our ambitious growth goals. This newly created position will lead on mobilising and supporting our global community of volunteers and partners, helping us provide new opportunities for hundreds of thousands of young people attending Dojos around the world.

Reporting to the Executive Director (CoderDojo Foundation), you will be responsible for driving our growth strategy and support channels for the global community. The ideal candidate will be an experienced community manager with a track record in scaling programs across multiple locations. You will be both a team leader, able to support other people to do the best work of their careers, and an outstanding individual contributor, ready to roll your sleeves up and generate brilliant work yourself.

You will work closely with the General Manager (Outreach and Engagement) and the wider Raspberry Pi Youth Programmes team in the UK and North America.

You will lead the execution of our community support and scaling. The ideal candidate will be a natural at strategic thinking, have strong sales skills and the ability to identify opportunities and devise and implement measurable methods to monitor and track our efforts.

While we expect you to come with an impressive track record, you will be joining a fast-growing non-profit organisation that offers unparalleled opportunities for development and growth. We pride ourselves on being a brilliant place to work, with a fantastic team, and positive work culture.
