Job description

Haven’t found the exact position at Chatterbug that you were looking for? Still have something to contribute that we need to know about? We’re continuously open to adding committed, talented and energetic individuals to our Chatterbug family.


 

About you

Ambition, drive and passion for language learning is exactly what we look for in our team members. You’re among the top of your field? Highly committed to drive value-creation? Passionate about our product? Combine this with plentiful positive vibes, trust and family-friendly values - that’s the working environment we strive for here at Chatterbug.


If you're an active language learner, that's a big plus! If you know a language other than English, we’d love to hear about it.


 

Working at Chatterbug

Our vision at Chatterbug is to build the internet’s most effective system to learn languages.


Although we are a small team, we have a big product. We are an experienced team with backgrounds at GitHub and other major tech companies with funding from top investors in Silicon Valley and Europe. Our team works extremely reasonable hours and we have a strong commitment to work-life balance.


Beyond language learning, we’re on a bigger mission to help make lots of jobs for people who only need one skill: how to speak their native language. We currently teach German, Spanish and French to English speakers, as well as English to Spanish speakers. Soon, we’ll be launching all of our courses for German speakers, too. We have an international team and an international product, and we’re proud of it.


Curious about how the company operates? Here’s a quick overview:


  • Work/life balance matters. We work a full day then go home, and please set up your Do Not Disturb. That Slack message can wait, can’t it? We think so too.
  • Remote flexibility. Our largest office is in Berlin with ~40 people, but our team is encouraged to travel and work from home when needed. Because of the vast time zone spread (9 hours now!), we focus on asynchronous communication when possible, via Slack and Basecamp.
  • Face time brings us together. Since we’re split up over the world, we put a lot of value on our weekly in-video “Chattermeet” all-hands meetings. We share what’s happening in the company, our product, our curriculum, and occasionally some tidbits about our lives too.
  • We value diversity. Chatterbug is an inclusive company - we embrace difference and strive for equality. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, identities and perspectives. We particularly encourage parents, women, people of colour and LGBTQIA+ to apply. We’re striving to create a safe environment that’s inclusive to everyone.
  • Learning first. We have monthly breakfast meetings at our Berlin office to teach about our systems and we encourage our employees to network and be continual learners at professional events.
  • Pitch us. Ideas for our company and our product can come from all levels or layers of the organization—you just need to write it up or propose it!


 

Your benefits

  • A role in a fast-moving, rapidly growing startup with a big vision
  • We’ll pay for you to learn a language - either with us or take a class, on us. You can also elect a friend or family member to learn with us for free, too
  • 26 days paid leave
  • Regular fun events, team dinners and an annual company summit abroad
  • A wonderful rooftop office in the heart of Berlin (with free fruit and amazing coffee!)
