Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model, which combines the flexibility of working from home with the benefits of gathering in person. Team members can work primarily remotely in the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, and Portugal. Conditions permitting, teams will meet in person a few times every quarter at one of Grammarly's hubs, currently in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York, Vancouver, and Berlin, or in a shared workspace in Krakow.

Grammarly team members in this role are required to live within a daily commutable distance to Berlin. Grammarly may provide relocation assistance.

The opportunity 

Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. Every day, over 30 million people and 50,000 teams around the world rely on our AI-powered communication assistance technology. All of this begins with our team collaborating in a values-driven and learning-oriented environment. 

To help us reach that goal, we’re looking for an Applied Researcher with a keen interest and background in natural language processing (NLP), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) to join our NLP team. The majority of the problems Grammarly’s NLP team is tackling haven’t already been solved elsewhere, which provides the opportunity for creativity and innovative problem-solving. This individual will work with other researchers, engineers, and linguists to create the next generation of writing and communication assistance tools. 

Grammarly’s engineers and researchers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs—and, in turn, influence our product roadmap. The complexity of our technical challenges is growing rapidly as we scale our interfaces, algorithms, and infrastructure. Read more about our stack or hear from our team on our technical blog.
