Full Time Android Developer

Who we are, why you might want to work for us, and what we're looking for.

Who we are


We are the Foundation Stage Forum Ltd and our main product, Tapestry, is used to record the progress and care of just under a million young children. If your child is one of them, we’d especially like to hear from you.

We are not an agency, nor a start-up. We are a small organisation, owned and run by our founders, profitable and growing steadily over the past decade. For more information on who we are, see ‘Our Story’ (link below).

We have an excellent relationship with our customers – read what they say about us on our Testimonials page (link below).

We are 30-strong, and in normal times everyone (developers, product support and development, founders, education specialists…) work out of one beautiful building in the centre of Lewes, which is near Brighton on the South Coast of the UK. We believe in working closely together so, if you were to join us, you’d need to be willing to travel to work in Lewes.


Why you might want to work for us


We offer a close knit, family friendly working environment. Our developers join us and stay, and that is the way we’d like it to be with you.


What we’re looking for


We have an existing Android (as well as an iOS) app, recently refactored to bring it up to date. Our main Tapestry web service is constantly being added to with new features, and some of these then need reproducing in our apps, which are stripped down versions of the web service. This role entails developing these new features, maintaining and bugfixing the code and working with the development team as well as product support to ensure our customers have a reliable and secure product.

If you are someone who knows Android and Kotlin well, cares about teachers and children, and is willing to work from initial design through deployment to supporting end users, then we’d like to hear from you. Please get in touch at
