Join us in our mission
We’re always on the lookout for exceptional people.
What we’re like to work with
At Siyavula, we’re seriously passionate about improving maths and science education and we've got a unique product worth throwing our weight behind. We're set to expand our reach, taking our online learning platform not just further into South Africa, but also out to the rest of the world.
Our highly-driven team work out of offices in the Cape Town and we are interested in people who are good at coming alongside and working together on a project, but are also capable of managing their own efforts, getting on with the job at hand and delivering a high-quality service, every time.
We’re still a bit of a start-up and start-up culture permeates a lot of what we do. We work with a relatively-flat organisational structure, enjoy flexible working hours and our shutdown over Christmas doesn’t come out of your leave! We also offer 2 personal admin days off a year and you get a day off for your birthday.
We’re working hard to make a big difference and to enjoying the ride. If this sounds appealing to you, get in touch.
What are we passionate about?
"I have an opportunity to make an impact on thousands of students scattered in several countries. It’s a responsibility that I take seriously."

"I'm dead passionate about striking a balance between purely academic knowledge, practical experience as well as creative endeavours."
"Chemistry opens up a whole other way of seeing things, a different way of understanding the world around us. That fascinates me, and I'd like to pass on this interest in understanding the world we live in."

"I believe that science is really about learning how to ask and answer questions about the surprising, fascinating world in which we live."
"I am passionate about the way education can shape and change someone behavior and approach to life. That moment a student realises he/she has applied something they thought impossible to grasp at first."
