Memrise is an award-winning language learning system with a growing user base of over 50 million. By leveraging lots of brain science and plenty of humour, we’re striving to enrich people’s consciousness and help people achieve confident, real-world language skills in just a few short months.
Memrise has a small web team that punches above its weight. We are half way through migrating away from our Django system into a brand new React one. After that we have ambitious plans for completely new features which markedly improve language learning.
We’re looking for someone to add to our already impressive knowledge in React but also to act as our subject matter expert on the frontend of our product. We have an exciting stack that needs a contributor with extensive frontend knowledge as well as awareness of best practices in this area.
This is an opportunity for someone to focus on developing not only their own skills but also contribute to architectural decisions and help the team learn and grow, alongside the Engineering Manager.
Our web team is made up of a diverse and talented mixture of backend and frontend engineers. We are led by a hands on Engineering Manager alongside three developers with a mixture of technological experience.
We are currently looking to expand our frontend expertise and if you consider yourself to be a highly competent and knowledgeable React Engineer we’d love to talk with you.
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.
This position is open as a remote position to anyone in the UK. Though the team is mostly based in London, we are committed to building a sustainable remote-first culture.

Salary: £65,000 - £85,000
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 app 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.
