Our mission

We're going to upskill humanity

We have an ambitious mission to 'upskill humanity' by building word-class edtech products, first tackling the cyber security skills shortage.

To do that we need an amazing team who share our ambitions and want to make a difference, and so we're creating a people-first company which provides an environment where creativity and innovation can thrive.

What makes us great

We set out on day one to build an amazing company

A team that loves coming to work each day are going to build amazing things. That's what we believe anyway, which is why we set out to make Magnetic Rock an incredible place to work from the start.

We're a start-up with enterprise reach

We were founded explicitly to be an innovation centre for new products, so we have the space and freedom to explore exciting new concepts at speed. But we're also well networked, with strong partnerships and several established routes to market. That gives us an unfair advantage and makes us a great place to both have fun and make a huge impact.

We're part of a bigger group

James and Tim, the founders of Magnetic Rock, also lead a variety of other companies including Helical Levity, Spinning Fox and Secure Impact. The companies share expertise and experience, and together we are stronger.

Icon of money

We're privately funded

We believe in what we're building, so we've put our money where our mouth is. Not having external investors to worry about means we can focus entirely on making great products that align with our mission and the needs of our customers.

We offer flexible and remote working

Our business is remote-first, with flexibility for you to work in tandem with your home life. We also have access to an amazing office in the Cotswolds so we still meet up whenever we need to.

We use the best equipment and tools

All team members use high spec Mac's or PC's and the latest software to make working enjoyable and easy. Plus, we can kit you out with any peripherals you may need.

We care about your training and development

Self-improvement is an important part of our culture, so we are committed to funding your development, every year. To do that we provide a £1,000 annual training bonus.

We provide a generous holiday allowance

We work hard because we love what we do, but we also know taking time to recuperate is vital to having a healthy team. That's why we offer 28 days plus bank holidays per year as standard, and we close over Christmas.

We make onboarding a great experience

Joining a new company can be daunting. We want you to enjoy your first few weeks and set you up for long term success at the company. So we have a programme of activities to get you up to speed with our culture and your role. Oh, and we throw in a cool swag bag!

We offer private health insurance

We offer Vitality health insurance that comes with its own perks, from free cinema tickets to a discounted Apple Watch.

We have a referral programme

We are growing rapidly and need more talented people, so if you introduce us to an amazing person who joins the company then we'll pay you £1,000 as a little thank you.

Our beliefs

A people-first company with strong values

We may be a diverse team with a wide range of skills and experiences, but we're held together by a strong set of values which drive how we approach making great things.

Value 01

We don't stop at great

We have the opportunity to imagine new solutions and bring these to life. Our products must delight their users, serve a purpose and gain recognition that aids our commercial success. Great isn't good enough.

Value 02

We know when to move fast or slow

We prioritise our time and effort on the most important projects. We know when it is important to gold-plate a product and when 'done' is more important than perfect. We have a ruthless streak when it comes to efficiency and seek to optimise our processes. Quality over quantity.

Value 03

We care for each other

We are one team. We must treat each other well, be proactive and helpful. Open, clear and honest communication is critical to our success. We do not tolerate ego's.

Value 04

We are relentlessly curious

Always have an open-mind, be inquisitive, educate yourself and others. Remember, if you are not learning then you're standing still. Most importantly we all welcome regular and constructive feedback.

Be part of the journey

We need amazing people, like you

We're tackling some really hard challenges in the dynamic and growing spaces of edtech and cyber security. But we can only do that with a team of world class professionals ready to roll up their sleeves and change the world. Sound like something you'd be interested in?
