Bab­bel (Les­son Nine GmbH)

Any­one can learn lan­gua­ges. This vis­ion has dri­ven the Bab­bel team since 2007. The mar­ket-lea­ding app for online learn­ing makes lan­gua­ges from Eng­lish to Indo­ne­sian eas­ily acces­si­ble from home on a com­pu­ter, or on the go with a smart­phone or tab­let. Bab­bel sup­ports those who dis­co­ver the joy of inde­pen­dent learn­ing out­s­ide of a pro­fes­sio­nal or edu­ca­tio­nal set­ting. By using Bab­bel cour­ses in their ever­y­day lives, lear­ners stay moti­va­ted over time and use Bab­bel far in excess of 12 months on aver­age. The pre­mium busi­ness model ensu­res an ad-free expe­ri­ence with the focus remai­ning squa­rely on con­tent.

Bab­bel com­bi­nes high-qua­lity cour­ses with mod­ern tech­no­logy. Con­tent is deve­lo­ped spe­ci­fi­cally for every lan­guage and level of dif­fi­culty by a pro­fes­sio­nal team of didacts, aut­hors and lan­guage teach­ers. The app is data-dri­ven and con­stantly learns from input gene­ra­ted by actual use.

Bab­bel is led by foun­ders Mar­kus Witte (CEO), Tho­mas Holl (CTO) and Lorenz Heine (Chief Inno­va­tion Offi­cer), as well as Mar­kus Cor­allo (CFO). The com­pany employs a team of over 300 at their head­quar­ters in Ber­lin. The ser­vice is avail­able world­wide at Bab­ (and on iOS and Android mobile devices), offe­ring cour­ses in 14 lan­gua­ges with seven source lan­gua­ges cor­re­spon­ding to the respec­tive mother ton­gue of the lear­ner.

Work­ing field:



Hallo! Bon­jour! Hi!

We believe that every­body should have the chance to learn a for­eign lan­guage. Lan­guages are about much more than simple every­day com­mu­nic­a­tion, they are a unique win­dow into a rich world of diverse and col­our­ful cul­tures. Bab­bel exists to offer every­body the chance to learn lan­guages.

Bab­bel offers 14 learn­ing lan­guages - from Eng­lish to Indone­sian - and, since found­ing in 2007, we have grown to become the mar­ket leader in app-based lan­guage learn­ing. There are 450 of us from over 41 dif­fer­ent coun­tries work­ing hard to keep this going - we call ourselves ‘Bab­be­lo­ni­ans’.

We want to achieve and cre­ate even more. That’s where you come in.

As our Fron­tend focused Soft­ware Engin­eer, you will be self-motiv­ated, full of ideas as well as energy and drive the engin­eer­ing of Bab­bel’s new products and ser­vices.

So, from one kind of lan­guage to another, we are look­ing to talk with pas­sion­ate and ded­ic­ated Soft­ware Engin­eers who speak our lan­guage….JavaS­cript. Of course, we under­stand that with any lan­guage comes dia­lect, and we par­tic­u­larly enjoy listen­ing to React.JS and Angu­lar.JS dia­lects. Poly­glots who also speak Ruby/Rails are also wel­come to join our party too. Exper­i­ence in JS and Ruby test­ing frame­works (we use Mocha) using BDD/TDD as well as solid know­ledge in REST-based API. Bonus points are on offer for those with AWS ser­vices exper­i­ence, or know­ledge of other server side frame­works like Sinatra or Node.js.

More broadly, we are look­ing for smart, pas­sion­ate engin­eers who can share in our goal of widen­ing access to lan­guage learn­ing. You care about main­tain­ing a clean code base and strive for tech­nical excel­lence in the build of our product. Above all else, you are always per­son­ally learn­ing and devel­op­ing, and you have the matur­ity and skill base to make timely and sus­tain­able indi­vidual con­tri­bu­tions. And finally, excel­lent verbal and writ­ten Eng­lish skills are must.

If this sounds inter­est­ing, why not learn more about the excit­ing cul­ture that we are build­ing in our Engin­eer­ing teams.
