Lead Communication Designer

London, England, United Kingdom · Design


Memrise gives people learning superpowers. We aim to help anyone achieve confident, real-world language skills in just a few short months. Our product is innovative and fun, and it delivers the goods.

We were awarded “Best App of 2017” at Google I/O and featured prominently this year at Apple’s WWDC. We work closely with both Google and Apple and are one of the top go-to developer partners when they launch new features on iOS and Android.

We are now hiring a Lead Communication Designer to help us bring our language learning communication to life through playful, bold and empathetic experiences.

We have just completed an in-depth rebrand project and now have clear direction on how we can best manifest our character through our products and communications. Now is time to bring that identity to life! It’ll be your mission to own this direction and ensure that it permeates the visual language and branding of Memrise communications across the whole organisation. We’re still a startup though so you’ll need to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in too.
