About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more people to be able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed educational content and programmes that are helping millions of people learn computing and digital making.

In October 2015, we merged with Code Club, followed in May 2017 by a second merger with the CoderDojo Foundation. Together we now represent one of the largest, sustained global efforts to help young people learn computing and digital making.

You will also be responsible for the line management of developers, supporting and coaching members of the team to do their best work.

You’ll need to have excellent technical skills, with the appetite to learn what you don’t know, and a commitment to making a difference to our users. You’ll join an agile development team that works in Cambridge and remotely around the UK. We use collaboration tools like GitHub and Slack to communicate effectively, and we encourage pair programming.

We strive to make the Foundation a place where talented people who care about our
