Senior Full Stack Engineer

We believe in breaking down language barriers and helping provide equal opportunities to all kids around the world.


Our mission

Lingokids mission is to break down language barriers and provide equal opportunities for kids all around the world. To help us on this mission and provide a reliable service to the more than 150K new families that join us every week, we're looking for a well-rounded Sr Backend Engineer that wants to join us in our HQ located in sunny Spain.

Why us?

We’re the playlearning™ app for more than 20 million families around the world. We teach kids important skills in English and help them discover their natural superpowers. Creativity. Collaboration. Critical thinking. Communication. These are some of the skills that children need to thrive. Parents can join the adventure of learning too. We’ve developed more than 600 games and activities kids and parents can play together. Our dream is to have a positive impact on 100 million families and we’re playworking™ hard to make it a reality… if you feel this dream could be your dream too, keep reading!

Are you ready to Playwork™ with us? 

The Lingokids feature teams own specific areas of our product and are responsible for designing and developing new features that help us accomplish our mission. As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, you will  participate in building the next version of our content management system that delivers our educational content to millions of families around the world.

At Lingokids we encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. We actively seek to hire individuals with different perspectives and we are eager to continue diversifying our company’s culture. We strive to be an inclusive, supportive place where you can do the best work of your career.

Our offices are in Madrid, Spain but the position is open to anyone with experience working remotely. Some overlap with Central European Time is expected though, for those times when a video call is the most efficient way to communicate.

As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, you will:

  • Gather requirements from our Interactive, Media, Kids Journey, and Parents squads.
  • Document their existing workflows for content creation, scheduling, and distribution.
  • Come up with new workflows that will help them scale content production by an order of magnitude.
  • Design and build the user interface and backend system that will make those new workflows as effortless as possible.
  • Work on a majestic modular monolith built with Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and Sidekiq.
  • Own your work from development to production and ensure its quality, maintainability and supportability.

Are you our Senior Full Stack Developer?

The ideal teammate for us would be someone who believes that communication, empathy, inquisitiveness, and open-mindedness are fundamental to being successful in any endeavour.

You must have considerable experience with Ruby, Rails, and the rest of the components of full stack web development: HTTP, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

English is a must. We are a multicultural team and we are providing a service in English so, we don’t care about certificates but we expect you to be able to communicate fluently.
You should feel equally comfortable communicating in long-form writing. Given the circumstances we have become a fully remote company and we are firm believers that being articulate in both spoken and written long-form asynchronous communication is key to working efficiently together.

Experience working closely with non-technical stakeholders to refine requirements and bring them to life is a must as we expect our Senior Full Stack Engineer to be the driving force for the entire lifecycle of this project’s development.

If you think you don’t tick all the boxes, we’d still love to hear from you. Nobody checks every box, and we are looking for someone excited to join the team.

If you are the ONE, we have a lot to offer...

We are not perfect, but we are proud of our culture and work hard to make sure every Lingoer loves what they do. These are some of the things we offer you for being a Lingoer:

  • Competitive Salary: The range for this role is between 41€ and 55k€ gross per year. 

  • Visa Sponsorship: We will fully-sponsor a visa to come work with us if needed. 

  • Holidays: 23 days of paid leave, and 14 days of bank holidays a year!

  • Family Leave: Enjoy up to 4 months of paid family leave, regardless of when you joined.

  • Stock-options: Joining the Lingokids journey means you own part of the company.

  • Flexible Hours & Remote working: We care about the results you bring to the team. 9 to 6 and constant commuting is not for us either. 

  • The gear you need, whether it’s mac or windows, a big screen or a laptop stand. Whatever you need to do your job, we get it for you.

  • Diverse Environment: Gender balanced and multicultural team with 16+ nationalities and day-to-day work in English.

  • Training: we support you to get better at your job with all the books, conferences and training you need. Including language lessons at the office in ES, EN & PT

  • Breakfast, Snacks & Drinks + Fridays Lunch: Our kitchen is always full, from beer to daily fresh fruits. On Fridays, Lingokids pays for lunch.

  • Retreats & Social Gatherings: Our team celebrates monthly get-togethers and an annual retreat.

If any of this rings a bell, let’s chat!
