Verbling is a San Francisco startup helping the world learn foreign languages. Students on six continents use Verbling to realize their dreams. We're looking for amazing people to make more dreams come true.
At Verbling, we see the faces of our users every single day. They're more than numbers on a graph. Language students fumble with grammar, learn slang, and laugh in live Verbling classes 24/7. We're still data driven, and the numbers could become very large. We're targeting over a billion language learners previously locked into a dead, broken market, now ripe for disruption thanks to technology.
What we look for
The first ten team members shape the company's culture, a culture that will mean everything as the organization scales. Therefore, we look for those with founder mentality. We want to bring on board people who take initiative, who aren't afraid of responsibility, and who understand the inherent value in moving fast and taking risks.
