Team Lead Linguistics for young software company

IT & Technology

Our software is an intelligent writing assistant for all common browsers and word processors. Every day, more than a million texts are checked fully automatically via our website and add-ons. To do this, we go far beyond grammar and spelling and also use AI-based technology that analyzes the style, tone and typography of the texts and provides instant contextual suggestions.

Join our company as Team Lead for our linguistics team!

Your tasks:

  • You will lead the teams that develop the intelligent writing assistant software:
  • You will be responsible for developing the rule-based style and error checking in Spanish, Portuguese, and French
  • You and your team will work closely with the AI team to help with the evaluation and corpus creation process
  • You plan and prioritize enhancements with your teams, then implement and evaluate them together
  • You are responsible for the quality of new and existing rules from your team
  • You process feedback and ideas from users and the team (prioritizing, delegating, coordinating), but you also bring many of your own ideas and goal-oriented initiatives to the table
  • You expand your team if necessary, develop the team members and are the first contact person for your team.

What do we expect from you?

  • You have experience as a team lead of 5-10 employees (at least one year); your leadership style is characterized by social skills and good people skills
  • You speak two of these languages very well: French, Spanish, Portuguese - ideally one is your mother tongue. You also speak German or English very well. Further language skills are a plus
  • You work independently and result-oriented, but at the same time you have an eye for detail.
  • You understand existing structures quickly, question them when necessary and work systematically and in a structured manner. You do not lose the overview even in complex and dynamic situations
  • You are passionate about software development and quickly work your way into existing rule syntax (XML) and other technical aspects of the job (GitHub, development environments, etc.). Programming skills are not required, but are appreciated
  • You k grammar and spelling of at least one of the above languages inside out, and you have a keen sense of style and nuance; familiarity with basic linguistics is a big plus
  • Experience in a dynamic work environment with complex responsibilities is a plus

What do we offer you?

  • You work from home or in the office (with very good S-Bahn connections to Berlin or Hamburg)
  • You work with your teams on a software that is used by hundreds of thousands of people every day
  • You can implement your ideas and initiatives immediately
  • You lead and work with international, dynamic teams whose heart beats for the product
