Who are we?

Solutionpath is a leader in the Learning Analytics and EdTech sector, pioneering new technology and data science to tackle some of the key issues facing the student, teaching and academic community today.

Our mission is to support all students to reach their full potential, get support where necessary and prevent situations that can hinder any one student in their progress.

Our product StREAM works by aggregating multiple student interactions and behavioural data. Using our algorithm, we create a simple engagement score that is used to support meaningful communication and interventions between students and their teaching institutions. The surrounding platform technology provides a range of features that enables all our stakeholders to make better, informed decisions and implement meaningful policies; and most importantly measure the impact they have.

We work in partnership with the most forward-thinking data-led learning institutions. We help each other to embed, develop and evolve our products to ensure that we are focused on the most positive outcome for the whole community on our platform. We are now reaping the rewards of all our efforts – as we see more and more evidence of how our unique market approach and methodology is making significant strides to improve the experience our student base has with their learning journeys…this is what keeps us going!

What are we looking for?

We are increasing our technical capabilities to better enable us to expand on our vision.

We are looking for individuals who want to make a difference with the work they do. Currently, we are hiring three roles within our technical team Senior, Mid and Junior.

If you love working for a small to medium-size business where you can make a real difference with your work. Solutionpath may just be right for you. We are looking to build a small dynamic team where you will have a voice in the direction and implementation of our technology.
