Hyperion was founded with an ambitious vision: to prove that African can teach the world a lesson. Originally formed in South Africa, Hyperion's team is split between London and Cape Town and has grown organically into the largest tech skills educational institution in Africa.
We've built a way to scale online mentor support in scarce tech skills education. We believe that machines can't match humans, and that high quality one-on-one mentor support can be scaled to better help students master complex fields like software development & Computer Science.

We prefer to dispense with the sort of rigidity found in 10 year signed, immutable "innovation roadmaps" which instead stifle innovation altogether. Our projects can be short-term but will always be high-impact for the communities we work with.
We've teamed up with the most important names in education, technology, social ventures and computer science to make sure both the courses we offer and the communities we drive are both industry-backed and world class.
Hyperion has grown from under 500 students in 2012 to over 5000 students on its courses alone, and has amassed R1.6m in funding in under a year for its drive to improve computer science in South Africa. Our reach is expected to only grow in the coming years.
Flexible startup work atmosphere
There's no uniform white cubicles or the endless staring at the same sticky notes you'd find at large corporates. Our startup atmosphere means you can put your skills to work in an environment that encourages you to excel.
Hyperion is looking for motivated people who share our mission, spirit and excitement for the future of Computer Science and software development in the country. If you think you tick these boxes and would be a good fit with us, we'd like to hear from you.
