    EIDU (www.eidu.com) has set out to create the most effective self-learning app for preschool children, and to distribute it for social impact on a global scale. Our software enables children aged 3-5 to develop cognitive abilities on their own. Starting with the early stages of mathematical thinking, we aim to cover a comprehensive set of elementary skills.

    EIDU’s primary goal is to achieve social impact. We see early childhood education as a key factor in reducing the global opportunity gap. The possibility to use mobile technology to improve educational conditions worldwide is in reach – at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.

    Product Manager

     

    Job Description

    We are looking for a Product Manager​ who will develop solutions for our challenges: 

    • How to bring our app to children in need? 
    • How to make sure that they learn when they play? 
    • How to engage their teachers into the project? 
    • How to scale globally...

    WHAT WE DO AND WHY

    We believe that all children should be given the chance to reach their full intellectual potential. For that, they need a proper foundation early on. It is our mission to help them acquire foundational skills before they start school. Our solution enables them to learn by themselves, without the help of adults, on an app that works globally, even on the cheapest devices.

    We are currently testing our EIDU app in the toughest conditions we could find: with more than 3,500 children in two of the largest urban slums in Africa, located in Nairobi, Kenya. We collect usage data from all players, and so have a vast, rich dataset of learner performance over time.
