About Us

Different Class Solutions is a small company the specialises in data rich software solutions. As the company grows, there is a need to add structure to the roles within the company. Junior developer is one such role and is a core part of the development team.

Company culture

The company is light on meetings – most of your time will be working on projects. Sometimes you may be expected to move from one project to another without much notice, and then back again. As a small company we have many projects, but we cannot dedicate resource to specific projects. We need to assign resource based on the immediate priorities and this can involve rapid change, requiring flexibility.

Our Mission

Using our expertise, passion and significant financial investment, we plan to at least double our clients over the next year. So please, feel free, to email your CV and a covering letter so we have you on record.

Some of Our Awesome Team

Mark Bedwell

Mark Bedwell

Director

After a brief foray into academia Mark has worked for over 10 years in Education management. Working directly with schools LAs and on government projects has given Mark a deep understanding of school performance data and information. Whilst Head of Research for Stoke-on-Trent LA Mark was instrumental in moving all assessment and tracking systems on-line. After leaving Stoke-on-Trent he acted as a DFE consultant for Cumbria constructing a powerful new data architecture. Mark believes that technology should be used to do the processing so that professionals can get on with analysing and producing intelligence that will help pupils and schools progress and develop.   

Paddy Guest

Paddy Guest

Director

Paddy studied chemistry at university for eight years before realising his passion and strength were in IT. He worked in a local authority for seven years developing and managing IT systems for education. Working with schools, teachers and heads directly for this amount of time led to his realisation that systems for schools were severely lacking in usability and elegance that so many other sectors benefit from. This drives his desire to make the systems that Different Class develops powerful, yet user-friendly and intuitive.
