Hi! We are a German Pre-Seed-Startup which is developing online solutions (internet platform, tools, app) for international students that want to come to Germany.

Graduate in Software Engineering or Computer Science (Bachelor/Master) wanted in order to make international students happy
(3rd team member for EXIST fellowship program)
Do you want to develop with us the best online solutions (internet platform, tools, app) for “studying in Germany”? Then you are the one we are looking for!
What is our vision?
We want to develop an internet platform in 2018, which helps international students from all over the world (starting from some target regions like Latin America, North America, India and China) on their way to university in Germany, and that will revolutionize the marketing of German universities and colleges. The main challenge will be to provide a service for millions of users in a very individual way, for which we will try to automate as much as possible.
What makes us special?
One of our innovations consists of brand new tools, through which the international students will receive an individualized online service for the first time in an automated way. These tools are based on scientific research on the mobility and study success of international students and also on our professional experience abroad. As office leaders of the world’s largest funding organisation for Academic Exchange we have provided service for thousands of young people in Italy (Tobias) and Peru (Stephan), and noticed how little their needs were met by the current solutions.
What would your exact tasks be?
Software development for 3 automatic service tools for international students
Developing the system architecture of our website
Developing a mobile first-, video- and funnel- optimized website
Interactive form for inquiry of user profiles (e.g. on the basis of a typeform)
Integration of third party software: Email marketing and CRM software, Webinar Software, Membership platform for videos and other content (from a third party provider), Analysis tools (Data science, SEO, Social Media Monitoring)
Development of a system infrastructure for our office (data protection and data security, cloud computing, infrastructure for video products with freelancers)
Perspective: further development of a third party app
What you should bring with you?
Inspiration for our vision (We want to build the best online platform for international students, with probably millions of users)
The ability to work in the various different fields mentioned above (that is why we are looking for an allrounder rather than a specialist)
Communication skills (to be able to work together with non-techies)
Spirit of adventure so that you can immerse yourself in a startup ☺
What we offer:
What can you expect?
founders with international expertise
an innovative business model
responsibility for the whole tech part
family-friendly working hours (remote work is possible)
What is our scientific network?
We are supported by the founding service of the Free University of Berlin (Profound Innovation) and by our mentor Martin Neugebauer, professor for empiric educational and school research. In February 2018 we will apply for the EXIST Business Startup grant (that supports founders from the scientific community for 1 year with up to 3.000 euro per month). Independent from the support decision we will launch our solution in autumn 2018.
