    We’re looking for talented individuals interested in joining a new and growing global company. At Slang, you’ll be an early team member of a well-funded startup spun out from MIT. We’re building a world-class team to revolutionize language learning with cutting-edge technology and beautiful design.


    What we’re working on at Slang

    Slang started at MIT as a research project on using AI and NLP to make learning a new language as efficient as possible. Our technology powers a highly adaptive e-learning platform that offers an unprecedented variety of specialized English courses and proficiency tests for career development in over fifty fields like Sales, Finance, Logistics, Medicine, and Law. With just a small team, we’ve already created the largest professional English offering in the world. Now, we’re scaling up to release 1,000 more courses over the next three years.

    Learn more about our unique approach at slangapp.com. We’d love to field any questions you have about our product and vision!


    What this role is about

    In this role, you’ll be involved in both product development and company strategy and execution — you’ll own the research, design, and development of the back ends of new features and you’ll help us refine our product roadmap. We have tens of thousands of active users and many subproblems in language learning to tackle.


    Our codebase is built with best practices in mind and our product is designed with proper user and developer experience at the forefront of development. The work we’re facing encompasses interesting infrastructural hurdles and data-heavy modeling and algorithmic tasks.


    Some of our technology comes from the open-source community, so be prepared to contribute back!

    Some interesting problems we’re tackling

    How can we determine what parts of a language a user already knows from a small sample of test exercises? How should we decide which parts of a language a user should learn next?

    How should we architect our database to support the growing number of activities our users submit every week (currently at more than a million per week)?

    How can we aggregate and communicate the learning statistics of a company’s employees for display to their managers?

    How can we analyze and leverage the massive amount of learner and content data we have to improve our learners’ experience?

    Skills and technologies

    Two or more years of experience in modern back-end web development, including…

    … Experience with modern web API stacks and related technologies, with a preference for Ruby on Rails experience.

    … Experience with database technologies, data structures, and related optimization. We currently deal with large amounts of data in PostgreSQL and Redis.

    A strong desire to maintain a clean, reliable, maintainable, and efficient codebase.

    Excellent discipline and focus, especially in autonomous environments, and strong English communication skills. We’re a small team and we’re moving quick!

    A plus: interest or experience with computational linguistics, natural-language processing (NLP), language-learning, speech recognition, data science, or machine learning.


    What Slang can offer you

    Our compensation package includes a competitive salary, company equity, and unique benefits.

    Most importantly, we offer the special experience of being part of a fast-moving and quickly growing international company within the entrepreneurial ecosystems of Boston and MIT.

    For more information about Slang and our ecosystem, check out our El Tiempo interview from our beta launch; the portfolio of Social Capital, our lead investor and investor in companies like Slack and Intercom; our Crunchbase profile; and the profiles of our founders, Diego Villegas and Kamran Khan.


    Where we’re located

    Our team is currently split between Boston and Bogotá, and we are recruiting great people in these locations and around the world who are able to work remotely. This role provides an opportunity to travel to our current offices in Boston and Bogotá and the new offices we’ll be opening this year!

    Our US headquarters is located in the Cambridge Innovation Center in the heart of downtown Boston, easily accessible by public transportation and alongside other innovative companies. Our Colombia office is located in the Rosales neighborhood of Bogotá.

    Job Description

    We’re looking to hire a backend developer to join our team working on PSPDFKit for Web. We are building a modern PDF SDK with technologies like Elixir, React, PostgreSQL, Docker, and WebAssembly. Your role as a backend developer will be to implement new features, improve the reliance of our server component, and work on scalability problems in a well-tested Elixir application.


    You Will:

    Work as part of a small, driven team that builds new features and fixes existing issues on a steady schedule.

    Make architectural decisions that will impact thousands of products for years.

    Write readable and well-documented code with meaningful tests so that we can ship new releases often and without fear.

    Take the time to do things correctly instead of coming up with quick fixes.

    Collaborate with the entire company (Android, iOS, Windows, Core, Support, Design, Marketing, and Sales) using Slack, GitHub, and Zoom.

    Support our customers in integrating our products, help them debug and fix issues, and collaborate with them to understand their requirements for our products.

    You Should:

    Be familiar with or have an interest in learning Elixir and its ecosystem of tools and packages.

    Have a high-level understanding of the web technology stack (e.g. HTTP, WebSockets, cookies, proxies, and caching).

    Have a strong interest in scaling PostgreSQL or a similar RDBMS, as well as understand the importance of consistency and efficiency when designing the data model for an application.

    Be eager to learn more about systems design, highly concurrent applications, immutable data, and functional programming models.

    Have good communication skills and enjoy working on a passionate team.

    Have a pragmatic approach to problem solving.

    Have a good command of English for writing documentation and occasional blog posts.

    Understand the challenges of working on a distributed team.

    Please note that you can be a perfect fit even if not everything we’ve outlined above applies to you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.


    We Offer:

    The ability to work remotely and set your own schedule.

    A family-friendly work environment.

    Room for personal and professional development by encouraging learning and experimenting.

    Two planned company events during the year (for example, in Croatia, Italy, Spain, Greece, and Vienna).

    A motivated team that enables you to do your best work.

    A generous vacation policy of five weeks, plus an additional allowance for conferences.

    An Application Should Include:

    A writeup explaining who you are as a programmer. We are especially interested in knowing how you started, what projects you have loved (or not loved) working on, what motivates you, and what surprising things you’ve learned since you began programming.

    A piece of code (it doesn’t have to be your own) that does something you find interesting, and an explanation why.

    Links to online profiles you use (e.g. GitHub, Twitter).

    A description of your work history (such as a resume, LinkedIn profile, or prose).

    Your Day at PSPDFKit

    Your day at PSPDFKit starts with an asynchronous today message in our team’s Slack channel, where you outline your goals for the day so that everyone on the team knows what everyone else is working on. All our regular company meetings occur on the same day each week, so most of the time you’ll be able to focus on your assigned tasks without interruptions.

    You’ll work on adding features to our Elixir-based server product and improving the stability of our existing applications together with our customers. We strongly believe in code quality over quantity, which is why new changes undergo a proposal phase where everyone on the team is invited to collaborate. We write unit, integration, and end-to-end tests and do peer reviews for every change.

    Beyond working on features and bug fixes, we also take time to help you improve upon your personal goals (through regular 1on1s and mentoring). Our remote-first focus allows you to set up working hours that best fit your daily routine. You can read more about our onboarding period here.

    About Us

    PSPDFKit helps companies and users increase productivity across the globe. With our robust PDF solutions, we ensure developers and end users have the highest quality tools available to do their best work. Trusted by industry leaders such as IBM, SAP, Lufthansa, and United Airlines, PSPDFKit is the go-to solution for integrating PDFs into your app. Find out more about us on our team page and check us out on Instagram.

    PSPDFKit is an equal opportunity employer with people from many different cultures and countries. We celebrate diversity and are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, skillsets, and perspectives, and to providing our employees with a work environment free of harassment.

    We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age, marital status, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical​​​ condition, sexual orientation, gender identity or ​expression, or any other non-merit factor. We’d especially love to receive applications from individuals who are underrepresented in the tech industry.

    We’re a rapidly growing startup transforming the way enterprises engage their customers when communicating over the phone. Some things that make us different include:

    A team of founders. Most of us have either been founders or ‘first hire’ at startups that have been acquired or gone public. We know and love building products that create big companies.

    We’re not your typical CRUD app. Our software runs across many different platforms (web/chrome/iOS/Android) and connects to a core communications infrastructure that we’ve built from scratch.

    We love our customers. Whether it’s building resources, going on-site or staying up late with them on launch day, we go above and beyond to make them successful.
