About us

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based educational charity working to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. We want more young people to be able to harness digital technologies for work, to solve the problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

Established in 2008 and first known for our product — the wildly successful Raspberry Pi computer — the Foundation has developed education programmes, learning experiences, and products that are helping millions of young people learn vital new knowledge and skills.

Through Code Club and CoderDojo, we support the world’s largest network of free informal computing clubs for young people. Tens of thousands of educators have taken our online courses, and millions of people use our free online learning resources.

Across all of our work, we work hard to engage young people who come from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in the field of computing or who experience educational disadvantage. We work all over the world, with teams based in the UK, Ireland, North America, and India, and partnerships with mission-aligned organisations in over 40 countries.

We are at the forefront of the global movement to help young people learn about computing and digital making. You can read more about our mission, values, and goals in our 2020 Annual Review.


In addition to competitive salaries, we offer a range of benefits for all of our colleagues, including:

  • 25 days’ annual leave
  • Generous company pension scheme with 8% employer and 4% employee contributions
  • Private healthcare
  • Life assurance and long-term illness insurance policy
  • Investment in professional development and learning
  • Flexible work hours as needed, to fit around childcare or other commitments
  • Generous family leave policy
  • Cycle-to-work scheme and season ticket loan

We are currently expecting all interviews to take place online, though with the relaxing of COVID-19 measures we may invite candidates for a face-to-face interview if appropriate.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If successful in the selection process, you will be required to undergo a background check carried out to identify that you are a suitable person to work with children. Further checks will be made at regular intervals thereafter.
