Join the tiney team

And help us build the future of childcare.

Working at tiney

As well as a rewarding mission, our team benefits ensure that your hard work is rewarded too.

Rest is Rocket fuel

We offer 28 days annual leave, with an additional 'First Month Reflection Day' because starting a new role is a big life change and you don't tend to want to request holiday early on. At tiney, we encourage 'defaulting to transparency' in everything we do and so this really helps people switch off and refuel.

Play is a superpower

We all get together in person every quarter to relax, socialise and reset - last time we did ukulele playing and white water rafting! Every month we have remote socials to bring the team together, we've done everything from drawing workshops, laughter yoga and magic lessons. When you join us, you'll also get a treasure hunt to complete to find your welcome treasure!

Asking for help shows wisdom not weakness

Mental health is the same as physical illness. We want to create an environment where people feel empowered to talk about it. We offer everyone annual subscriptions to Headspace, discounts to Calm, training for mental health first aiders and access to counselling.

People policies with children at the core

We have a forward-thinking approach to supporting employees and their families. We offer £5,000 of childcare through a tiney childminder for parents returning to work and with our flexible working policy, individuals structure their work around their family time. We also have company wide life insurance, sickness cover and contribute 3% towards your pension but we don't see this as a 'benefit'.

Compensation and options

We offer every full time member EMI Options so that you own a part of tiney. For your salary, we will always post this on our job roles so that you don't need to negotiate. We have also built our own feedback system where you will have three monthly feedback conversations with your manager to make sure you're growing at tiney.

Remote first benefits

We want to make sure we're providing the same people experience to everyone, regardless of your location. We give everyone access to coworking spaces near your home and you'll receive up to £2,000 worth of equipment when you start to make sure you have all the tools you need to do the best work of your life.

Business with a deep rooted social purpose

At tiney, we believe that a high quality early education is the right of every child. We also know (and studies have shown) that improving childcare options for children impacts the whole of society. At tiney, we are enabling this social impact 3 fold; creating job opportunities for childminders, providing flexibility and choice for working families and delivering amazing early education for children!

As part of our commitment to social impact we have pledged to play our part in meeting the 2030 Global Goals initiative around Quality Education set by World Leaders. We are also proud to be part of the Meaningful Business Network.

Brett's story

Our CEO Brett formed tiney after 15 years leading Teach First, a charity that has worked with over a million children. He realised more support was needed for children from an even earlier age. He created tiney to help make that difference.

"We’ve been fortunate to build an outstanding team at tiney so far; adding people who’ve done amazing things at other tech startups and in the world of education. As founders who’ve all built successful companies in the past we’re excited to do it again and see our vision come to life."

- Brett Wigdortz OBE, tiney CEO and former founder at Teach First

We’ve worked hard to develop a set of shared beliefs that unite our team.

We believe that

Every day we can earn trust.

At tiney, nothing matters more than trust. Every day families entrust their children to us and every day we have the opportunity to reinforce that trust through our decisions and actions.

We believe that

Rest is rocket fuel.

We believe that we’re at our best when we make time to rest. When we’re rested we not only make better choices in our work, but are also choosing to prioritise our own self care as individuals.

We believe that

Play is a superpower.

Young children learn best when they play - we believe that often applies to adults, as well. As adults we can dismiss the value of play and in doing so, miss its crucial role in creativity, problem solving and building relationships.

We believe that

Curious minds see more.

We believe that curious people help us make better choices. When we’re curious as a team we learn more, navigate uncertain times with more confidence and avoid blindspots.

We believe that

Asking for help shows wisdom, not weakness.

We believe that the smartest people amongst us are those that know the value of asking for the help of others. When we ask for help we not only show an awareness of our own limitations, but also show others that we value them.

We believe that

You grow stronger after a fall.

As a child, the only way we learn is through trial and repetition. Falling down is not a sign of failure, but a natural part of learning and growing.
