Vacancy opened 23-03-2019


Babbel is the world’s top-grossing and most effective language-learning app. No small feat, and no small challenge. In a moment rife with talk of walls, we’re building bridges — making the language-learning journey as exciting and empowering as possible, helping people forge new connections and participate in worlds bigger than their own.

Babbel is for everyone, not some niche or elite strata of learners. Everyone. That means reflecting the dynamism and diversity of our users, as much as possible, in the production of Babbel. We currently have 750 people from more than 50 nationalities working in our Berlin and New York offices. A culture of difference and dignity is critical to how we’ve connected with millions of users in every hemisphere.

We are looking for a Program Lead for our Engineering Mentoring Program to start immediately in our office in Berlin, Germany!

You will be guiding the next phase of our Engineering Mentoring Program, named Babbel Neos, wherein you will shape the concept, train mentors, hire participants and inspire them to grow.

  • Select, train, and support mentors from our engineering team
  • Create a safe environment for learning and growth
  • Motivate people to step outside of their comfort zones
Nice to have:
  • Hands-on experience teaching software engineering concepts and practices (at a university / coding camp / coding school)
