We are looking for a German Assistant to help create useful and interesting content for our users.

Update May 24, 2021: We are no longer accepting applications for this position. You can find other opportunities for working with FlunentU at our careers and job openings page.

Job Description

We are looking for a German native speaker who can support various simple tasks for our German service. Your responsibilities would include:

  • Checking images for our German annotations
  • Remapping words to the correct annotations
  • Transcribing German videos
  • Supporting the content team with other various tasks

Job Requirements

  • Native level of German language and fluent English language skills: You must have a strong understanding of the German language and excellent English communication skills.
  • Strong editing skills and attention to detail: The assistance you provide to the content team should be professional and accurate.
  • The ability to work remotely with a team: Our team is distributed around the globe. While working remotely sounds great at first, if you haven’t done it before, you’ll find that there are many challenges and it’s not necessarily a perfect fit for everyone.
  • Having a self-driven and productive attitude: You have to be able to get things done and be ready for a high level of freedom and responsibility.
  • Strong written communications: Being an organized and clear communicator is key.
  • Stable commitment: You should be able to work 7-10 hours per week on a regular, long-term basis.

Please note that there will be a test that simulates actual FluentU work, and that also the first 90 days are a trial period. If at any point either party thinks we are not a good fit for each other, they can end this process immediately. Passing the trial will result in an ongoing position at our company. Of course, you will get fully paid during the trial period.
