An Insider's view of Duolingo

What are some social events your company does?

I've really appreciated the high-touch, fun social activities that we've gotten to take part in – especially events like a virtual cooking class. I was so pleasantly surprised to get a personalized apron in the mail with my name on it, and learn how to make tacos from Duolingo's in-house chef!

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are part of a business unit (The Duolingo English Test) that was recently spun off into its own product. This means we have some technical debt we need to pay off because we had a lot of rapid growth. Our team also tackles ambiguous problems requiring research and development. We brainstorm and try various ideas until we have a working solution.

How does the company support your career growth?

When I first joined, I had no prior experience with iOS development. But I was eager to learn, and Duolingo was willing to invest in me. Duolingo provided me with the mentorship and resources to not only learn iOS, but become proficient enough to now build a new app from the ground up.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Duolingo feels like a family. “Duos,” as we call ourselves, are these great people who strongly believe in our mission of creating free and accessible education. They are fun-loving people, and it’s the kind of company where you feel comfortable enough to hang out with people after hours to play games or just joke around.
