Speechify is the easiest way to listen to the world’s information. Articles on the web, documents in the cloud, books on your phone — we absorb the world’s content and help our members listen to it on the go, at their own speed, with tools that make learning easier, deeper, and faster.

Or, put another way: what Spotify has done for audio entertainment we’re doing for audio information. And whatever we’re doing seems to be working: we’re #1 in our category, profitable, and have hockey-stick growth.

Product at Speechify is exciting for a few reasons:

  • We have a vision that allows for a lot of creative exploration. 
    • What does a future where people consume all information through audio look like? How do we create this future?
  • We have “life changing” product market fit.
    • We have multiple cohorts of users (disabilities, students, working professionals) that report life changing experiences.
  • We move very fast
    • We run a large number of experiments every week and we ship multiple times every week.
  • We are very focused on customers
    • We start from concrete user problems and build systems to maintain very high levels of user empathy.
  • We care about deep thinking
    • We get to the right answers through careful thought and experimentation and we enjoy diving into the details.

  • Excellent communication skills, detail-oriented and demonstrated ability to follow through on several complex projects simultaneously
  • Experience designing mobile apps with millions of end users (a plus)
