Finance Analyst – Working Student (Berlin, m/f/d)

Quality education for all

We believe that all children should be given the chance to reach their full potential. However, more than 600 million children in the world do not achieve foundational skills like literacy and basic numeracy – despite the majority of them going to school. 

At EIDU, we are creating the next-generation ed-tech platform for children who lack access to the high-quality education that all children deserve. We currently serve a quarter of a million active students in Kenya, and we look forward to serving up to 30 million students by 2030. A recent Randomised Controlled Trial places EIDU among the top 10% of educational interventions worldwide, demonstrating a 65% increase in learning rates among children. We also have fascinating projects with leading technology companies to further enhance learning outcomes through AI. 

EIDU is funded by well-known development agencies, foundations, and impact investors and we are about to scale our programs rapidly through partnerships with governments.

With a mission like EIDU’s, diversity of thought and background within our team is crucial. We value those who can bring a diverse perspective to our platform and help us provide high-quality education to as many children as we can across the globe.
