Memrise is an award-winning language learning system which combines cognitive science, entertaining content and advanced tech to empower our millions of users with linguistic confidence in just a few months of learning.

We were awarded “Best App of 2017” at Google I/O and featured prominently this year at Apple’s WWDC. We work closely with both Google and Apple and are one of the top go-to developer partners when they launch new features on iOS and Android.

We're looking for a Senior Product Manager to join us for 3-6 months, leading the creation of new in-app learning experiences and optimization of existing ones that help people learn the language’s core basics as fast as possible. This is a great opportunity to work with a talented team who are passionately committed to pushing the boundaries of what a language learning app can do.

The squads are focused on a specific aspect of the product and people with different skill sets are working together to solve the same problem. Our squads are collaborative, innovative and small. Together, they test new ideas, launch and optimise new features and strive to give our users confidence in their language skills.
