[REMOTE/Berlin] Senior Fullstack Engineer (M/F/D)

RemoteBerlin, Berlin, GermanyTech

Job description

About Tomorrow’s University
Tomorrow’s Education is an early-stage Edtech startup based in Berlin founded by serial entrepreneurs, Christian Rebernik and Dr. Thomas Funke. Our vision is to redesign education and educate and empower the leaders to tackle the greatest challenges of tomorrow together.

Our inspiration

We believe that one of the biggest challenges in education is the way of teaching itself. Therefore we are challenging the old teacher-oriented approach of the traditional universities, by shifting to a student-centric approach.

We want to provide our students with a unique opportunity to gain the relevant skills and mindset and then leverage their impact through a global network.

Our mission

At Tomorrow’s University, we leverage science and technology for effective learning and foster a global community for continuous growth and impact. With us, students learn by applying their knowledge to real-life challenges and interacting with world-class educators, mentors, and partners from all around the world.
