(₤60000 - ₤80000 per year)

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. To further this, we are looking for a Senior Software Engineer (salary: 60,000 - £80,000 + benefits) to work on our learning algorithm.

Your mission will be to drive engagement and learning efficacy through continuous iteration on Memrise’s learning algorithm. Hopefully you will have some or all of the following:

Solid commercial engineering experience

Demonstrable commercial experience in Python

Experience developing scalable systems on cloud infrastructure

Exposure to native mobile development

Experience deploying ML models (bonus)

Ability and willingness to independently work on challenging problems without given solutions

Excellent communication skills

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.
