Are you a programmer? Want to help us teach English all over the world?

Reallyenglish are looking for programmers to join our team!

We've been teaching English online for over 12 years providing services to everyone from individual students up to large universities and big enterprises like Fujitsu & Sony.

What we're looking for

We're looking for enthusiastic, pragmatic programmers with a passion for creating great software. You should be excited about new technology and constant improvement but not afraid to dive into older codebases and get your hands dirty.

A bit about us

We're very much in the small 'a' agile camp. We pair when needed; sometimes we spike, sometimes we cover a white board. We care about making code that will make sense to us in 6 months time and believe that automated tests have saved our skin more times that we can count.

We're a family friendly company and over the years we’ve found that getting the job done right is about more than sitting in an office for set hours every day. We're flexible about remote working and provided you can give us a day's work, we're pretty flexible about when those hours fall.

We have offices in London, China & Japan so there are also opportunities for travelling from time to time.

What you'll be working on

We have a large number of different applications running our services and you'll have the chance to work on projects across the stack. For example we have:

  • Ruby on Rails / Postgres-based account management system
  • Mongodb-backed Rails app running our lesson platform
  • Javascript-based Cordova app running on iOS & Android
  • Elastic search / Kibana-based analytics and graphing

Our upcoming projects include:

  • An upgrade of our adaptive learning engine
  • Breaking up some of more hefty Rails apps into something more manageable
  • Improving our registration system
  • Improved multi-device support for our lesson system
