About Ans

Starting off as a student project in 2015, our founders Kerim and Benjamin noticed the need for digitising paper-based assessments. During their time as teaching assistants they noticed reviewing written assignments could be made more efficient by making use of digital tooling. Today, we help more than 75.000 educators around the world assess their students. To do so, we have grown into a company with more than 40 employees representing 15+ nationalities.

At Ans, we are committed to bringing satisfying assessing to all educators around the world. We strive to do so by making assessing more enjoyable every time.
