Head Of Developer Relations

Location: Copenhagen

Who we are:

We are building the largest platform of educational gaming apps for primary school kids with a disruptive product approach. It’s a talented team, a meaningful product that impacts daily life of kids, parents and teachers, and growing rapidly.

In a nutshell, Skidos is:

  • Providing value: Around half a million kids use one or more of our educational gaming apps to master mathematics, reading and other skills.
  • Making an impact: Educational gaming is broken. We’re helping fix it. Already today, because of Skidos, kids are spending more time learning and improving their school skills than playing mindless casual games. And we just started.
  • Venture funded: We are backed by one of the largest early stage VC funds in Denmark along with high profile angel investors who have backed global unicorns like Zendesk.
  • Growing like superstars: Our apps are used by kids in over 100 countries and growing. Why? Because they love them.
  • A solid fun team: Good people who enjoy coming into the office and like to break bread together around 12:00 every day.
