About Growing Up

Our mission is to simplify good and environmentally friendly parenthood by making science accessible to parents.

Through science, playtime can be optimised for the cognitive development of the future generation. Our solution is a digital platform for the parent where they have access to a science-based parental guide, playtime tips to optimise cognitive development, and a function to track their child's unique progress. We are focused on parents with children aged 0-5. Our subscription-based service re-directs the responsibility of fundamental education back to the home whilst dematerialising childhood to make it more environmentally friendly.

In addition to the playtime guide, we will offer a subscription service for science-backed children's toys. Through the subscription model, we will take a circular approach to the toy industry and the rapidly growing field of educational technology. Our vision is to become the first-choice environmental solution for playtime.

Our focus is on science-based solutions that prioritise environmental sustainability and cognitive development.

After winning Best Project in the Circular Manufacturing Systems course, our next step is to create an MVP (minimum viable product) and join the KTH Innovation pre-incubator program. To take that step we need to expand our team.

Join Growing Up's exciting journey as our Software developer!

About the position

We are looking for a partner who can complement our competencies regarding web- and app development. Although your main responsibility regards software development, in this early start-up stage you will have the chance to influence all aspects of the company, from technical decisions to company values. As customer experience is essential, you will be implementing new features and functionality into our infrastructure based on results from experiments, user interviews, and usage data. As we believe it is important to work together in physical meetings, it is a must to be able to meet at KTH.

Responsibilities include:

  • Developing the mobile application from the start.
  • Developing the website and database.

Work with great people

Skills & Requirements

Who you are

We are looking for you who believe in our idea, are dedicated, and who are in it for the long run. We also prioritise a good group dynamic. You need to have great communication, be organised, and be self-driven. As the role includes combining experimental data from early users, it is important that you are social, collaborative, and can concretise user feedback into technical solutions. Since you will be working with all parts of our IT systems, you should feel comfortable and have experience with relevant technologies and programming languages. We do not require knowledge of a specific technology, but that you are willing and able to quickly learn whatever is needed to solve the issues at hand.

Clear and confident English is a requirement. Although not required, it is strongly meritorious to have a portfolio of software development that can be showcased. Also, an eye for design and aesthetics is beneficial.

What we offer

As Growing Up is an early-stage start-up, there is no salary included in the position initially. Instead, the position entails the possibility to become part of the founding team and a shareholder. This position offers a unique entrepreneurial experience. Furthermore, as Growing Up is founded at KTH, we have support from a Business Development Coach at KTH Innovation.

We believe in diversity and therefore welcome all applicants regardless of gender, background, orientation, or beliefs.

Great Place to Work
