Voxy is changing peoples lives for the better every single day. That's not an overstatement, it's the truth. Learning a new language is the single hardest things that you can ask an adult to do. We make it happen for 2.5 million people. Every. Single. Day.

Voxy provides a cloud-based English language learning platform that's based on 20 years of cutting edge scientific research into language learning. It's proven effective, in the lab and in the wild. It's a tough problem, but that's okay, we like tough problems and you should too.We're looking for product managers who want to join a growing start-up as we tackle the old-school entrenched players in a $80B/year industry that hasn't seen any real innovation in decades. We've got a kick-ass culture, paying customers, top-tier investors, and we can make it happen.

Things that are important to us:

  • Data and User Feedback. Our product roadmap is informed by talking to users, mining our advanced data warehouse, and staying up-to-date on the latest research on second language acquisition. Iterative product development and fast-feedback loops drive our processes.
  • Communication, it's the core of our company and the product team keeps it flowing.
  • Thirst for learning. What we're working on today may be something different tomorrow, and as a company we support that.
  • Respect. We're a team, value each other's opinions, and motivate each other to do our best every day.

Competitive salary, stock, medical, dental, vision, etc. Yep, we've got that, plus a whole host of other benefits like CitiBike memberships, gym reimbursements, snacks, beer (to offset the gym memberships), unlimited vacation, free Mandarin/Spanish/French lessons, and a bunch of other stuff. HQed in NoHo, with offices in Chelsea and São Paolo, we are situated amidst multiple train lines, restaurants, coffee shops, bike stores, bars, gyms, fashion, galleries and general NY excellence.
