About the job

We believe that design and usability are the foundation of an excellent product experience. Our small Product/Design and Engineering teams work together very closely all the way from concept to final implementation. We use an iterative process, release often, and stay open to feedback.

As we are starting on some major product improvements, we are looking to add an experienced React developer to join our team in order to expand the scope of what’s possible with Chatterbug. Our web and mobile app are written in React and React-Native respectively and we work on both.

About you

You’re a multi-talented engineer who wants to join our team, building our language-learning product and infrastructure. You will be part of a small development team and have the opportunity to own major components of our systems.

You’ll ship new features to our students and tutors, you’ll help be in service of our growing curriculum development team building our language learning content, and you’ll assist in digging into technical issues in our stack.

You’re an active learner whose passions may include learning languages. (If you know a language other than English please tell us!)
