About Tomorrow’s Education
Tomorrow’s Education is an 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 leaders to tackle the greatest challenges of tomorrow together, today.
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 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 of like-minded creators.
At Tomorrow’s Education, 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.
As a Product Manager your goal is to translate our learner-centric approach into impactful features that deliver the outcomes relevant for our company’s strategic goals. You will take responsibility for the results of a development team made of frontend and backend engineers as well as a product designer. With your team, you will be focussing on enabling effective processes for our faculty staff in content production and learner management by creating a powerful toolset and enhancing learner observability and analytics.
