Duolingo is the most popular language-learning application in the world, with over 500 million users and over half a billion exercises completed daily. Beyond our core learning product, we have entered into literacy with Duolingo ABC and English proficiency testing with the Duolingo English Test.

We are passionate about educating our users, making fact-based decisions, and finding innovative solutions to complex problems. We offer meaningful work, limitless learning opportunities, and collaboration with world-class minds. Come brighten your life and over half a billion more!

As the New Initiatives Support Lead, you’ll be Duolingo’s link between our New Initiatives teams and their support communities. Currently our New Initiatives teams include Duolingo for Schools and Duolingo Events.

Duolingo for Schools is a free, learner-centered platform designed to facilitate additional world language learning in classrooms by enabling teachers to roster students, create assignments, and view student activity. Duolingo Events are relaxed online gatherings for learners to practice speaking a language together, make mistakes, and have fun with fluent hosts.

You’ll help lead and grow our support operations, ensure that users around the world have the help they need to use Duolingo effectively, and advocate for their needs internally. This is an incredible opportunity for an experienced community support leader to have a tangible impact on global educational access.
