Software Engineer - Lexicon & Listening
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 well over 50 (30+ nationalities).
We’re now looking to build out our 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.
We are looking for a Full Stack Engineer to join the Lexicon and Listening squad (Salary: £40,000 - £70,000 + benefits).
This cross-functional squad is focused on delivering an experience that will not only teach language learners in a short time, but also makes them fall in love with the language. We also focus on solving problems around how to make our users better at being able to understand native-language speakers in the real world.
Your mission will be to build and improve our web platform, bringing it to the same awesome level of features as our award-winning mobile apps, and ideally you will have some or all of the following:
- A love of working in a product based environment
- Deep commercial experience of Python and Django
- Experience with SASS and CSS3, including animation and interaction design.
- Experience working with complex, existing, working code.
- Bonus points for a genuine interest in languages and learning
If you aren’t completely confident that you fit our exact criteria, please get in touch immediately. 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.
Healthcare and pension, with a number of discounts and cashback on important stuff like Gym membership, opticians and dentists' fees. We also give you budget and time to learn a language in work hours. The office is stocked with a wide ever-changing variety of healthy and unhealthy snacks, tea, coffee and soft drinks and breakfast materials. 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.
