We are a team of language and technology enthusiasts building the best language course search site. We're currently recruiting an intern to help us build relationships and negotiate complex multi-faceted deals with new partner schools.
We do (humbly) think Language International is a cool place to work. Our team is the most diverse you'll find in terms of cultural background, languages spoken, race, color, gender, nationality, talent, ideas, music preference, taste in clothes, wine preference and shoe size. But there is one thing that binds us all: we are a tenacious bunch. We'll do whatever it takes to deliver the best language course search experience, even if it means staying up to fix a website bug or responding to customers on weekends. It’s an intense fast-paced environment where we all work very hard, but we tend not to kill ourselves with a million hours per week.
And don't worry, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Whether it’s showing off our culinary skills during team cooking events, showcasing our hidden genius in impromptu talent shows over catered lunch, or rehearsing the train dance during our summer party cruise or weekend party in Vermont, we love to have a good time together!
Today, we serve over 50,000 students a year and we have local Language International sites in thirty languages in fifty countries. We’ve developed a passion for our team, product, and customers that is parallel to none. If you’re energized by what we do, want your coworkers to feel like family, and love to be challenged by working alongside the very best, then Language International is the place for you.
