Chatterbug is entering a new chapter in our mission to bring language learning into modern times. We've already helped thousands of students speak a language for real with our tutors, but we want to take the human element of learning even further. Introducing Chatterbug Streams, a brand new mobile app which brings live streaming into the Chatterbug ecosystem. About the job Although we are a small team, we have a big product. We are an experienced team with backgrounds at GitHub and other major tech companies with funding from top investors in Silicon Valley and Europe. Our team works extremely reasonable hours and we have a strong commitment to work-life balance. We believe that design and usability are the foundation of an excellent product experience. Our small Product/Design and Engineering teams work together very closely all the way from concept to final implementation. We use an iterative process, release often, and stay open to feedback. As we are starting on some major product improvements, we are looking to add an experienced React developer to join our team in order to expand the scope of what's possible with Chatterbug. Our web and mobile app are written in React and React-Native respectively and we work on both. About You You’re a multi-talented engineer who wants to join our team building our language-learning product and infrastructure. You will be part of a small development team and have the opportunity to own major components of our systems. You’ll ship new features to our students and tutors, you’ll help be in service of our growing curriculum development team building our language learning content, and you’ll assist in digging into technical issues in our stack. You’re an active learner whose passions may include learning languages. (If you know a language other than English please tell us!)
