Job: Senior Full Stack PHP/JS Developer – Product / Blog

Hi there!

This might be your lucky day.

What is FluentU? 

FluentU is an education company (started in 2011) that helps people learn languages with real-world videos like movie trailers, music videos, news, and inspiring talks. We have a website, iOS app (usually in the top 20-40 grossing iOS education apps), and a soon to be released Android app. Many people know us through our blog, which is visited ~4 million times every month (which makes it, as far as we know, one of the biggest language learning blogs online). 

Why would you want to work here?

  1. We’re a 100% distributed/remote team. We have a work style that a lot of developers might like (mainly communicate via text with very few or no calls/meetings).
  2. Have freedom to work when/where you want. We believe in hiring capable people who can largely manage themselves.
  3. We have a flat, collaborative environment.
  4. We make decisions based on logic/reason. We prioritize communicating clearly.
  5. You’ll be working in a small team of talented individuals.
  6. We’re a profitable, stable company with a long-term focus – proudly self-funded.
  7. We’re constantly evolving and learning – you will be too.
  8. We work reasonable/flexible hours.

Why wouldn’t you want to work here?

  1. We’re a 100% distributed/remote team. Not the most social work environment. We mainly communicate via text with very few or no calls/meetings.
  2. We might not give as much hand holding as other companies. We don’t want to tell you exactly what to do.
  3. We can be direct with our feedback.
  4. With freedom comes responsibility and extra need for accountability. We’ll ask you to report # of hours worked and what you’ve accomplished each day.
  5. Things can change a lot – we are always experimenting and trying new things.

What is this job about? 

This job has a broad range of potential responsibilities. They potentially include:

  • Working with our blog team to manage our WordPress-based blog (which is what you’re reading right now). 
  • Working with our main dev team that builds our FluentU product for web, iOS, Android.

You’ll be working directly with the CEO or founder.
