Memrise is an award-winning language learning system with a growing user base of over 50 million.
At Memrise we know it’s impossible to learn a language unless you can master three key skills.
1. Basic translation of words and phrases
2. Understanding them when they’re used in real-life situations
3. Being understood by other people
Translation is the easy part and many other products do this well but our method is the only one that will help people to master all three.
We’re looking for a versatile Senior Android Engineer to develop and optimise our award-winning language learning experience on Android.
You’ll shape the future of our Android app, helping millions of people to learn new languages. We’re a small engineering team with a deep connection to our business, product, and users.
Memrise is a truly mobile first product. We work in cross-functional teams, collaborating with designers, product owners, and data analysts. We deliver value to our users at pace, releasing our mobile apps weekly. We also embrace new technologies to solve our biggest challenges. For example, we’re using Kotlin Multiplatform to share common code between our client apps.
Our team values empathy for the people we work with and the community we work for. We support each other. We are purposeful in our actions and effective at collaboration.
You’ll be in our award winning mobile team and working with some of the most talented engineers in London. You’ll work alongside 3 other Android specialists, within a cross-functional team of 6-8 people.
We are committed to a flexible working model that allows collaboration within our teams but that also gives our employees the ability to work from home.

We’re an equal opportunity employer. If it’s okay, we’re not going to list examples of people and groups we don’t discriminate against. We don’t discriminate, full stop. We celebrate.
What’s it like to work here?
Interesting. Fun. Challenging. Serious. Odd. Silly. It just depends on the day, really. But whatever day it is, we love what we do: helping people all around the world learn more about languages, new cultures and each other. They use our product to broaden their minds and horizons. And that feels pretty good.
You’ll join our UK team of open-minded, big-hearted, goal-oriented ‘Memrisians’, made up of linguists, developers, designers, marketers and more, all working together to do great things. Get in touch if you want to join the team.
