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.
Last year, we won the "App of the Year 2017" at the Google Play Awards. With near zero marketing spend we’ve grown organically to tens of millions of users, and we’re already profitable with a team of 57 (with 30+ nationalities).
We’re now looking to build out our engineering team to take Memrise to the next level. The goal in the coming years is to become the dominant product and pre-eminent brand in global language learning.
Your mission will be to ensure Memrise has world-class IT services and internal security protocols. You will continuously work towards improving the experience of working at Memrise across the company from an IT perspective. (Salary: £40,000 - 50,000 pro rata & benefits).
Ideally you will have some or all of the following:
- Highly responsible
- Great communication skills
- Previous experience in a similar position
- Experience in a mostly Mac based environment (some of us do use PCs as well)
- Deep understanding of security protocols and best practices
- Experience with workflow automation
- Basic knowledge of a programming language suitable for automating workflows, such as Python
- Bonus points for experience with SSO solutions
If you aren’t completely confident that you fit our exact criteria, please get in touch immediately with a CV and cover letter. Humility is a wonderful thing and we’re not interested in hiring ‘rockstars’ or ‘ninjas’. And we're at least as interested in character as in talent. We will also consider candidates who could work four days a week.
Healthcare and pension, with a number of discounts and cashback on important stuff like Gym membership, opticians and dentists' fees. Fresh fruit, coffee and soft drinks. We keep you fuelled with a wide ever-changing variety of healthy and unhealthy snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks, breakfast materials and weekly team language lunches and language lessons. We have frequent team expeditions, the last one being to being a trip to Iceland for a Polyglot Conference and general exploring! We run a cycle to work scheme and a selection of useful perks and benefits.
