Work at tonies GmbH

We are the Tonies behind tonies®. We have completely rethought listening for children by transferring our passion for audio play to digital. Our products and applications create their own ecosystem that combines valuable haptic experiences with smart technology in a contemporary way.

With over 450 employees working in our 4 offices in Germany as well as in the UK, USA and France, we are dedicated to creating intuitive products with outstanding design, tailored to children.

Our company culture 🤝

At tonies®, creativity, smart technology and a love of storytelling come together. Above all, the people behind the professional qualifications are important to us, which is why there is no dress code - you simply wear what you like.

After all, we want to help you build your strengths with us. That's why we value flat hierarchies – excellent ideas don't just walk down the organizational chart, they pop out of every corner. Our personal culture also helps us to work dynamically and agilely, while always treating each other straightforwardly and respectfully. Diversity has many dimensions, faces, and stories at tonies®. It is an integral, indispensable part of modern society and is part of the foundation of our corporate culture. As a signatory to the "Diversity Charter", we understand first and foremost, but not conclusively, the equal worth of all people - regardless of gender and gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion and world view, sexual orientation, social or ethnic origin, nationality, and age.

We have flexible working embedded in our DNA. Equipped with your tech tools, you'll sync up with the team to strike that ideal balance between work and free time. And, of course, celebrating together is a key part of our culture!

The tonies principles 🌟

Our tonies principles are an important aspect of our corporate culture. They serve as a guideline for how we work together, what drives us and what makes us who we are.

Christmas season 🎁

The festive season is in full swing, and alongside the smell of delicious biscuits, hot chocolate and mulled wine, it's also the season of giving and bringing joy.

Following the heartwarming support from last year, we have asked our tonies® employees to help us again this year to fulfill Christmas wishes of children and young people whose circumstances are not so easy and who currently live in Housing Groups of Diakonie Düsseldorf.

The support in the last weeks was overwhelming. We collected 71 lovely wrapped Christmas presents, which we have now handed over and brought some smiles and warmth into their lives. 🎁🎄

Our AI ourney continues 🚀

3,000 tonies accounts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the UK can now test our enhanced AI Storyteller. Families can create personalized stories and instantly listen to them on the Toniebox.

At tonies®, it has always been our mission to provide kids with access to technology in a responsible and child-friendly way. With our AI-based story generator, kids can tap into their unlimited creativity and keen sense of storytelling.

💡 Families can choose the age of the child, the names of the heroes, the type of story, and the combination of themes (such as friendship, courage, or adventure).

🎤 Dr. Christian Sprinkmeyer, our Chief Product Officer (CPO), said: “The feedback from our initial UK test was overwhelmingly positive: kids and parents loved the stories created with their own children's names as heroes. Families also said that their children's creativity was enhanced, and their understanding of artificial intelligence increased.”

Feedback from the first round of testing in the UK has been implemented and the tool has been improved:
✔ Longer stories (around 10 minutes instead of 3)
✔ Continuation of the story with more episodes
✔ Sound effects
✔ Story creation with a multi-step process that guides families through the input screen

Sustainability at tonies 💚

Taking another (little) step towards Sustainability: We're now able to save approximately 0.6 tons of CO2 and 0.3 tons of packaging material per year by optimizing our transportation routes for large returns.

📢 Following the successful implementation of the “pre-loved” Tonieboxes, our program to re-activate returned Tonieboxes, we are excited to announce the next step to improve the sustainability profile of the pre-loved Tonieboxes: By adjusting transportation routes directly to our refurbishment partner, we will save 0.6 tons of CO2 and an additional 0.3 tons of packaging material per year.

🌳 This move demonstrates our strong motivation to continuously review our operations and reduce our CO2-footprint. We truly believe that it's also the small steps that lead to fundamental change and can make a big difference.
