Total Funding

$20.8 billion

We’re looking for a software engineer to join our small, speedy, and mission-driven team. As the very first engineer, you will have an outsized equity stake in the company, significantly impact a first-of-its-kind product, and play a pivotal role in building a fun, diverse, and inclusive team culture.

💻 What you’ll do

  • Own and ship features and experiments end-to-end, taking a sketched idea (or a pain point from a user call) to a deployed feature in our production mobile app
  • Develop, improve upon, and maintain our backend services, like our core conversation and grammar services. This includes experimenting with new NLP and speech recognition models and APIs.
  • Write clean, maintainable, performant code and participate in code reviews
  • Work closely with the CTO and CEO to understand user needs, brainstorm user-facing product features, and identify new opportunities
  • Monitor and scale infrastructure as our user base and usage grows
  • Create and iterate on systems to support content creation based on product stage and need, which could range from quick and dirty one-time scripts, to building out a lightweight CMS using third party tools

🥞 Our Stack

We use Flutter, Python/Flask, Firebase, and Google Cloud Platform, and are working on big, unsolved NLP and Speech Recognition problems like dynamic conversational content generation and accurately understanding accented English.

😄 Who you are

  • You thrive in fast paced environments with rapidly changing directions, priorities, and requirements
  • You learn new things quickly, and have a strong bias towards shipping code quickly too
  • You crave, and have demonstrated, a high level of technical and product ownership
  • You believe no job is too small or not worth your time – if it needs to get done, you’ll hop in and do it!
  • You aren’t afraid to roll up your sleeves and collaboratively tackle meaty problems
  • You have 2+ years of industry experience building a user-facing consumer app (mobile or web)
  • You are a strong communicator and are able to explain and express your ideas clearly

🍰 Bonus

  • You’ve built and owned mobile apps that are used and loved by many
  • You are globally minded, or a serious language learner yourself
  • You're curious about how people learn, and are passionate about education
