Voxy is changing people's lives for the better every single day. That’s not an overstatement, it’s the truth. Learning a new language is the single hardest things that you can ask an adult to do. We make it happen. Every. Single. Day.
Voxy provides a cloud-based English language learning platform that’s based on 20 years of cutting edge scientific research into language learning. It’s proven effective, in the lab and in the wild. It’s a tough problem, but that’s okay, we like tough problems and you should too.
Come join a growing start-up as we tackle the old-school entrenched players in a $60B/year industry that hasn’t seen any real innovation in decades. If it’s a kick-ass culture, paying customers and top-tier investors that you’re looking for, well, we have that.
These things are important to us, and they should be important to you too:
What we’ll ask of you:
You’ll be responsible for day-to-day management and technical leadership that the engineering team needs, and will spend around 50% of the time hands on with engineering. At Voxy engineering and product are very closely aligned and you’ll work with the VP of Product to help define, refine and contribute to the product roadmap. Responsibility for communication between the engineering team, product team and Senior Leadership will be yours.
