Description:

If you believe that language learning makes the world a better place, congrats — you’ve just found your tribe. We hear from our team that working at Mango is the kind of job Linguists dream about. In this unique role, you’ll collaborate with our team of experts to bring the Mango language-learning experience to life. You’ll love working with our diverse group of linguists, lexicographers, and product managers to imagine and build realistic, authentic, and fun language learning tools for today’s modern learner.

We’re excited to bring on board an experienced Linguist who is passionate about language and culture. This role will position you at the center of the product development action: you’ll coordinate audio needs for all courses and projects, lead content development efforts, and coordinate our course deploy process. On any given day, you’ll work your left and right brain to oversee the development of creative and high-quality courses, modify and splice audio, coordinate the audio recording and proofing process, manage our teams of course developers, and more. It’s all in a day’s work when you’re a Mango Linguist — and we celebrate our hard work each and every week at our office-wide Fiesta Fridays.

The perfect candidate has a proven track record in language learning and content development, and experience working with multilingual audio files. We’re also looking for someone with strong communication skills and a passion for doing great work. If you’ve got a reputation as a proactive, adaptable, and resourceful team player, you’ll fit right in.

Ready to devote your linguistic superpowers to enriching lives with language and culture? We can’t wait to hear from you!
