The app gives users video lessons from Hollywood accent coaches and instant feedback from speech AI. Founded by immigrants who have felt the pain of being misunderstood or overlooked due to their accents, our mission is to empower every non-native English speaker to speak with their clearest, boldest voice.

Today, BoldVoice is one of the top Education apps on the App Store and serves non-native speakers of 100+ different language backgrounds all over the world. The company is backed by Y Combinator and VC investors, and has been featured on TechCrunch and Forbes.

About the role

Tech stack: React Native (iOS & Android), React (CMS), Node / Express, PostgreSQL

👩‍💻👨‍💻 Role

As a full-stack engineer at BoldVoice, you will own features end to end, working on:

  • iOS and Android mobile apps that thousands of users open every day
  • Data models and APIs on the backend
  • Admin CMS which we use to manage content in the app and see what is going on

There’s so much that we want to build. If you’ve ever seen how engaging and interactive an app like Duolingo is, you’ll understand how much building we’ve got ahead of us. We want to create a similarly engaging experience for people who already know English, but now want to work on their accent and speech confidence.

We're a small team and you will get to work hand in hand with the CTO and CEO on coming up with features and then implementing them.

😀 Who you are

  • You work fast, aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, and focus on simplicity to solve problems the right way
  • You care about the small stuff, you believe that details matter, and it’s always worth it to deliver a better user experience
  • No job is too small, nor any problem too big to work through
  • You know a thing or two about React, React Native and Javascript best-practices

✨ Requirements

  • You’ve worked before on a small team at a fast-paced company
  • You have at least 3 years of experience as a full stack engineer
  • You’ve worked on a production React Native app before
  • We work out of our office in downtown NYC, and want our team to be in person at least 3x a week

🎁 What we offer

  • You will be compensated in salary and generous stock options -- we want you to feel like an integral part of the success and growth of the company
  • Benefits include excellent fully paid health/vision/dental insurance and 401K
  • Access to exclusive startup events, conferences and networks

📲 How to Apply:

  • Reach out here or email us at founders [at] boldvoice [dot] com to start the conversation!
