Overview

Here at Memrise we have a fantastic team of people working on a product used by over 10 million people worldwide that makes learning joyful and effortless, leveraging lots of brain science and plenty of humour in the process.

We are looking for an experienced Android engineer to join our established and growing team of people in our converted chapel in East London. We ship substantial new features weekly, and we’re facing significant scaling challenges alongside the continual bold transformation of the product itself.

The app itself has millions of downloads, a 4.7-star rating, almost a million active users, and ranks in top-grossing charts, as well as having accolades like Editor’s Choice and Play Apps of the Year 2015.

We now want to push on and scale Memrise’s Android app to tens of millions of active users, while providing the most potent learning tech on the Play Store.

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’.

  • A high-profile, award winning app
