Who We Are
At d6 education we are all about increasing the effectiveness of schools. We are passionate about improving the administrative and communication processes within schools, to increase their operational effectiveness and allow them to put their energy where it is needed most - in the classrooms!
What We Do
We develop software products to help the schools in their daily operations. Our products are developed on a pretty typical LAMP stack with all of the usual supporting technologies, but we do have a pretty cool configuration to provide scalability and resilience, including memcache, load balancing, replication and fail-over to make sure we are rock solid.
Our primary focus is on the following:
A school administration system which provides all of the administrative functions that come with managing a school - capturing family and staff information, configuring the curriculum, recording marks, attendance & discipline, calculating progression & retention, generating report cards and other reporting, managing finances and communication. This is a fully integrated product with all of the various modules interacting to provide a seamless, holistic solution for the school.
A stand-alone communication system which allows the schools to communicate directly with their parents via mobile and desktop clients.
We try to keep things as agile as possible, and work on a continuous release process to make sure we deliver the most value possible in the shortest time. We are always trying to improve what we do and how we do it, and the culture is inclusive - we are in this together and we should all be part of creating the solution and enjoying the journey.
Our Interview Process
The first step is a short interview so that we can get more familiar with one another. This will help to ensure that the company is a good fit for you and your long term goals. If we have a mutually fuzzy feeling about each other then we can move on to the next round.
The next round is a small developer challenge. The questions you can expect are based on the various technologies that we make use of in our development environment, and provides us an opportunity to see how you problem-solve, and what level of expertise you possess in the various technologies. This also affords you the opportunity to experience a bit more of our environment and our team dynamics.
The next round will be the final interview whereafter we will make you an offer based on the outcome of the meeting.
We are excited to have a new member on our team and are looking forward to creating great solutions together!
