Who we are
At Busuu, we make learning a language easier by combining AI-powered courses, instant feedback from our global community of native speakers, and lessons with qualified teachers.
If you love languages, want to work with smart, creative, energetic people and possess the initiative, confidence and good judgement to make independent decisions every day, then you’ll love working with us!
Our core belief
We believe amazing things happen when we learn together.
We offer the best way to learn a language remotely. We do this through our unique offering, which combines human interaction, AI technology and our teaching expertise.
The EdTech industry has seen monumental growth – and so have we. We’re building a strong, talented team so we can continue to dominate in the language-learning space.
Our company values
We give everyone responsibility from day one. We always deliver on our promises, and treat each other with respect.
For us, empowering our customers means solving the right problems – then going above and beyond to get stuff done.
We always think big and try to go the extra mile – and we pride ourselves on leaving a legacy.
We like to question the status quo. We test, learn and share so we can better ourselves and our work every day.
We bring our passion to what we do, but we support and celebrate each other along the way (and we love any excuse to party!).
Some of the perks
Develop personally and professionally every year – it’s on us.
We may have to “namaste” at home, but at least this way, we stay zen together.
Private health insurance
Healthy mind and body come first, always.
We are currently fully remote, and when possible, plan to come back to work in the office 2-3 days a week.
We throw virtual socials, parties and even rent entire islands for our team trips!
We care about your future and have an attractive company pension scheme.
Ever wanted to travel the world, or just put your feet up for a month? Take a fully paid 4-week break after 3 years.
Late takeaway dinners
Need to work late? Order in. We’ll foot the bill.
We offer enhanced maternity and paternity leave.
More about our story
It all started when Co-Founders Bernhard Niesner and Adrian Hilti met at IE Business School in Spain. Frustrated by the traditional means to learn Spanish, they wanted to create a new solution. Something that combined online courses and interactions with native speakers, allowing everyone in the world to learn a language.
Their idea took form when they founded Busuu in 2008. Named after an endangered language in Cameroon, today Busuu is one of the most globally recognised brands in language education, with offices in both London and Madrid, over 120 million learners worldwide and a trophy case full of awards.
