About us

Who we are

We are a fast-growing start-up that was founded on the core belief that personalized learning is an important right everyone should be able to have access to. As such, we deliver measurable business outcomes for our global enterprise clients through a digital people development platform.ย 

Personal 1:1 coaching is at the heart of our solution as we are convinced of the strong impact coaching has on personal growth. Our product has unparalleled user engagement in the market and it tackles the need of companies to manage and scale people development. ๐Ÿš€

Equity, diversity, and inclusion are big topics for us. We are convinced that fair, heterogeneous, and inclusive company culture is the key to our companyโ€™s development, exceptional growth, and achieving our goals. And as such, we welcome people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations.

We are proud to be ranked as one of the "Top Startup-Employers" selected byย Business Punkย andย Statista!ย 

Fabian, Dominik, and I founded Sharpist inspired by Tasha Eurich's claim that, while 90% of people believe they are self-aware, only 10% actually are. This fact harms people's interactions with others as well as with themselves. Bringing the most personalized way to learn and grow through coaching to everyone will change the scale.

CEO & Co-Founder

Working at Sharpist is an experience full of:

aha! moments

As a digital platform for professional development, we believe professional and personal growth should be a basic right for all employees, no matter their seniority or position. And it shows! One of the perks of joining us is free personalized top-level coaching, so you can reach your full potential.


wow! moments

Being part of our team means working surrounded by incredibly bright and talented people. Ideas fly and flow so fast itโ€™s hard to keep up. Weโ€™re excited to hear yours!


haha! moments

Having fun is an essential part of our day-to-day life. Everyone is encouraged to disconnect in order to reconnect, thatโ€™s why you will always find someone playing ping pong, having a chat while drinking tea or Club Mate (a very Berlin thing to do), or simply chilling in between tasks.


paw! moments

We wouldnโ€™t be 100 % complete without our furry four-legged colleagues! We absolutely adore having their photos get shared around, or when they crash our meetings or join us for a coffee chat (both online and offline). We are, however, always mindful of possible allergies or other restrictions of our two-legged colleagues and thatโ€™s why, if necessary, we get to enjoy the pet's presence online only. :)ย 

Join our team of +20 nationalities.


Are you ready to start growing with us?

We would love to encourage people of all ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations to apply for our open positions.

When I think about my dream job I always look for companies with the best possible combination of product and people.

The team is incredibly passionate and fully committed to our mission, I can breathe this every day. Ultimately, what for Sharpist is the core business and mission, for most companies is one item in their corporate agenda.

Being non-violent & direct is one of our cultural principles. So we not only care about giving feedback but also about the approach of giving and receiving it.
