Job Description

Who we are

Most people dream of being able to play a musical instrument. We develop outstanding products that enable anyone to achieve this dream. Our first product is flowkey: a revolutionary app for learning to play the piano. After our launch in 2015, flowkey quickly became one of the global leaders in its category, with more than 5 million users from over 100 countries. We are also one of the exceptions in the startup world, as we have been profitable from the beginning. This enabled us to go our own way and create a great culture.

Why join us

We believe that the best companies will help you live your life the way you want and become the person you want to be. Here is how we strive to do that:

  • Flexible working hours: We only schedule a few fixed meetings every week—you're free to arrange the rest of your time in the way that best suits you.
  • Remote work—and a beautiful office: We’ve found that it makes a difference whether we see each other in person or through a screen. That’s why we’ve put much love into designing our beautiful and spacious office in Berlin. At the same time, we deeply value freedom so we’ve set up our collaboration in a way that enables us to work from anywhere.
  • Shared success: We distribute part of the company's annual profits among the whole team, on top of a competitive salary. This way everyone shares in our continuous business growth.
  • Support for your growth: If you want to learn a new language, attend a conference, or pursue other self-development goals, we'll cover the costs—up to €2,500 per year.
  • Love of music and a piano for your home: Whatever style of music you enjoy, you’re sure to find like-minded people among us. And you’ll get your own piano to play at home.

Your role and responsibilities

As a Course Creator for Contemporary Piano Styles you will be part of our Course Team, which develops educational content for the course section in our app. Complementary to our classically oriented curriculum, you’ll be developing new courses and exercises for contemporary piano playing, including chord accompaniment and improvisation in various styles. You’ll work together with other pianists, teachers, copywriters, and video producers to create interactive music lessons that delight millions of piano players. Together we will take a new lesson from idea to release, including pitching the concept, defining a structure, drafting a script, finding appropriate repertoire, composing engaging exercises, and producing the video material.


We’re looking for a passionate, natural-born teacher who can break down topics into clear, engaging narratives and explain complex musical concepts in simple terms. You're someone who wants to teach our users how to play the music they love by working with fun and innovative methods that reach beyond the norm.

You should also bring:

  • Completed piano studies with a focus on popular styles or equivalent qualification
  • Strong knowledge of classical and jazz music theory
  • Proven ability to teach player of all levels with the priority of developing a love for music, rather than perfect playing technique
  • An affinity for forward-thinking technologies in order to maximize fun, engagement and skill development
  • A strong feeling for pedagogical progression and the ability to generate lessons, exercises and musical ideas at appropriate levels
  • Great creative thinking, organizational and communication skills
