In the face of a very challenging year, Lingokids tripled its international growth in 2020. We now have more than 25 million families around the world playlearning™ with us. The best part? It’s only the beginning.
Launched in 2016, Lingokids is a playlearning™ app in English for children 2 to 8 years old. With games, songs, and other activities, our app helps kids develop skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. After only five years, we’re now considered one of the benchmark startups in Spain! Our growth is largely due to our commitment to talent and diversity as a fundamental factor for innovation and development.
And that is exactly what we’re looking for now to grow our amazing team.
Calling New Talent!
We’re on the lookout for fresh talent at the senior and director level to join our team of 85 people! Our goal for this year is to welcome around 30 new Lingoers from all over the world.
We currently have 21 open positions for engineers and data experts, as well as roles in marketing, content, and human resources.
Why Join Our Team?
Playworking with Lingokids means being part of a diverse team of like-minded creatives and innovators. It also means that you get to help make an impact on millions of families around the world. That being said, it’s important to us that we create the best possible work environment for our Lingoers so that they can do what they do best.
To support our employee-centric policy, we give our employees the opportunity to work either entirely remotely or from our headquarters in Madrid. “The candidates, like any of our employees, can live anywhere in Spain and even in Europe, as long as they demonstrate a high level of efficiency, leadership, and autonomy. Additionally, they must share our values and, of course, meet all the requirements for the position,” says Leticia Castro, Head of People & Culture at Lingokids. We feel this flexibility helps our team maintain a healthy balance between their professional and personal lives.
We also prioritize and support continuous learning for our Lingoers, which is why we offer up to $2,000 for training, books, and courses, as well as language lessons in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. Other perks of being on our team include the option to own company stocks and free lunch every Friday!
