Memrise is an award-winning language learning system with a growing user base of over 50 million.
At Memrise we know it's impossible to learn a language unless you can master three key skills.
1. Basic translation of words and phrases
2. Understanding them when they’re used in real-life situations
3. Being understood by other people
Translation is the easy part and many other products do this well but our method is the only one that will help people to master all three.
You will lead the Memrise platform team’s efforts to build backend and data infrastructure as well as supporting innovative new product features that delight our millions of users.
This is an opportunity to run the platform engineering team of a popular consumer product that is regularly featured on the app stores and has millions of users.
The team has a high level of technical quality but there’s still plenty of opportunities to raise the bar and have an impact.
Memrise has big plans for development on new areas of the product in 2021. We aren’t sitting still with what we have – we’re developing entirely new concepts that will immerse our users in language and allow them to communicate with each other.
Memrise has a diverse, harmonious, humble engineering team. We don’t have rockstars or ninjas; at Memrise, humility is a virtue.
Our team values empathy for the people we work with and the community we work for. We support each other. We are purposeful in our actions and effective at collaboration.
You’ll be in a key leadership role of a team that is around 15 strong with growth plans to increase that number. You will be part of our engineering leadership and participate in crucial decisions alongside Product and Design team members.
This position is mostly based in London although we do have some flexibility around working location.
We’re an equal opportunity employer. If it’s okay, we’re not going to list examples of people and groups we don’t discriminate against. We don’t discriminate, full stop. We celebrate.
What’s it like to work here?
Interesting. Fun. Challenging. Serious. Odd. Silly. It just depends on the day, really. But whatever day it is, we love what we do: helping people all around the world learn more about languages, new cultures and each other. They use our product to broaden their minds and horizons. And that feels pretty good.
You’ll join our UK team of open-minded, big-hearted, goal-oriented ‘Memrisians’, made up of linguists, developers, designers, marketers and more, all working together to do great things. Get in touch if you want to join the team.
