Our mission at Duolingo is to develop the best education in the world and make it universally available. But we’ve got more left to do — and that's where you come in!

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 also 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!

Keep Duolingo free for millions with a premium experience that learners love.

As a content designer in our Monetization area, you’ll write the words that encourage learners to subscribe to Plus and work hard toward their goals. You and your teammates will be tasked with finding new pathways to Plus, making good features better, and crafting new features that help learners level up their progress and dedication.

Do you love experimenting with content and using data to see what resonates? Awesome! We're all about testing and learning at Duolingo, so we're looking for someone who's ready to write, test, and rewrite. (Then share what you found out — we're learners first.)

This role reports to the Senior Content Designer as a member of the Design team, the instrumental creative partner in most projects at Duolingo. At Duolingo, we take pride in making learning fun and effective for everyone, and you’ll play a meaningful role in helping our learners reach their goals.

  • Build and maintain content style guides for the Monetization area
  • Constantly experiment with copy and iterate based on data
  • Help to champion a content strategy that weaves the Duolingo brand message and voice into every touchpoint
  • See strings through the localization process, ensuring A+ translation
