A superhuman, AI-powered language tutor in your pocket
Our mission at Speak is to teach the next billion people how to speak English.
We believe that speech recognition and machine learning will transform how people learn English. We're building this future now: software that can understand what a student is saying, give them immediate feedback, and guide them towards fluency, all on their phone.
Currently, over 1 billion people around the globe are trying to learn English to build a better life. Unfortunately, almost nobody learning English gets to fluency because doing so is expensive, arduous, often embarrassing, and requires human tutoring at hourly rates. We believe that by using AI and technology to replace much of the human involvement in the English learning process, we'll be able to help hundreds of millions of people gain fluency in English who otherwise wouldn't be able to learn.
Speak quickly became the fastest growing language learning app in our first market, South Korea, due to our novel speaking-centric approach. Now we're launching globally! We recently raised an oversubscribed $15m Series A from some of the top investors in Silicon Valley, including Y Combinator, Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, Sam Altman, Justin Mateen and others. We're a team of 20, spread out across SF, Seoul, and Remote.
Your main responsibility will be to build and maintain a suite of extremely important internal tools that allow our content team to build Speak's unique content rapidly while also enabling them to make the content intelligent via the Speak platform.
There will be many fun and unique challenges and each project will be different. You'll be able to write code very quickly, ship frequently, and make a huge impact on our business by helping us scale our content.
While you'll be building tools primarily for our content team, there will also be opportunities to help our marketing, ops, and CS teams scale a well.
What we offer: Competitive salary, generous stock options, insurance and other benefits including stipends for learning, fitness, and more.
