Wisy visualizes student progress by a no-hardware-needed method. It features an algorithm that predicts study outcomes.

By founding, building and running a tutoring school for over 5 years for experimental purposes I have come to the conclusion that measurability of student progress is the number one issue the industry currently faces. During this period of research I have developed and verified an easy to use method to assess student progress. It is also possible to assess the student before they are taking on the service and predict - provided enough data points are present - their outcome over the coming course. This way a clear and realistic value proposition can be formulated by the schools for their paying customers or for school teachers who work with children on an everyday basis.

With wisy

  • a tutoring school can reliably say "We will increase Barneys Grades by measure X in X amount of time."
  • For teachers it makes it obvious whether they are making progress with their class,
  • also to parents it's clear what they are spending their money on
  • and for schools it's easier to assess their performance as an institution.
  • And at last but not least, it also helps the student to visualize their progress (see John Hattie "Make learning visible").

Wisy is currently being founded and work on a prototype is currently being done. The method and the algorithm have been tested and proven to work. We have covered the business skills, expertise in the field of education, product design, machine learning skills, the UX/UI Part ist also covered. Our Advisory-Board consists of seasoned Entrepreneurs and Professionals from the IT and Business/VC/Consulting sector.

Yet we are looking to fill in two major roles. We need a Tech-Professional who creates a cloud-based MVP from the preexisting work like the algorithm, the UX/UI work and the preliminary database-design and is ready to take on the Tech-Lead Role as a Core-Teammember for further development in the future. Secondly we would like to fill in the role of an account manager or 'Chief Revenue Office', which will be looking into creating the salespipeline and working closely with our customers, to create a successful experience for them and their students.

Requirements: We don't hand either part to an agency and you should be based in Switzerland and ideally be familiar with the Swiss educational system or concerned with education or academia in any other way.
