About TOA

What started as the world’s first crowdfunded festival seven years ago, turned into a 4-day flagship festival in Berlin and a series of event chapters around the world. We’ve just delivered our 7th festival edition in June 2018 for 21,000 attendees with 100+ Satellite events from across Berlin city, and our Conference covering 6 stages, 24 themes, 10 formats, 100+ Exhibitors at the Haus of Tech, and TOA Night with art and music at its core.

Our mission is to make you future-proof.

We are the world’s first crowdfunded conference. Today we are building a global, inclusive platform for knowledge exchange and collaboration.

We believe that technology is transforming the way we work, live, and relate to others. Next to the challenges this brings, it also catalyzes opportunities for positive change in the world.

We provide access to the people building impactful technology and who share their expertise with our community for everyone to experience the culture of Generation We. Join us for one hell of a ride this summer!

Ideal Candidate

  • You’re a natural storyteller and instinctively know how to identify a story

  • You’re passionate and interested in the tech sector and its impact on the rest of society
  • You’re a self-starter, creating your own structures and processes to get the job done
  • You’re keen on research and thrive on discovering hidden gems and following the latest trends
  • You’re focused, a great multi-tasker and function well under pressure – and you’re adaptable when things change suddenly
  • You have great creative energy and enjoy pushing yourself to think outside of the box
  • You’re incredibly detail oriented and love improving on processes to make them more efficient
  • Experience with WordPress, Hubspot and Asana is an asset
  • No worries if you don’t speak German, but your English (both verbal and written) must be fluent
