Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members work primarily remotely in the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, or Portugal. Certain roles have specific location requirements to facilitate collaboration at a particular Grammarly hub.
All roles have an in-person component: Conditions permitting, teams meet 2–4 weeks every quarter at one of Grammarly’s hubs in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York, Vancouver, and Berlin, or in a workspace in Kraków. This flexible approach gives team members the best of both worlds: plenty of focus time along with in-person collaboration that fosters trust and unlocks creativity.
Grammarly team members in this role will collaborate in person 4 weeks per quarter, traveling if necessary to different hubs. They are required to live within a commutable distance of their home hub of San Francisco. Grammarly may provide relocation assistance.
Every day, tens of millions of people and 50,000 professional teams rely on Grammarly’s AI-enabled communication assistance to help them communicate confidently and achieve their goals. Our team members have the autonomy to take on exciting challenges in pursuit of our mission to improve lives by improving communication. Together, we’re building on more than a decade of steady growth and profitability. We’re defining the communication assistance category for individuals, enterprises, and developers with tailored service offerings: Grammarly Premium, Grammarly Business, Grammarly for Education, and Grammarly for Developers. All of this begins with our team collaborating in an inclusive, values-driven, and learning-oriented environment.
Grammarly’s core vision is to improve lives by improving communication. The Grammarly for Developers team contributes to this vision by enabling third-party developers to use Grammarly’s assistance to serve more use cases and users than Grammarly can serve on its own. We allow developers to customize the Grammarly experience, build on Grammarly technology, and scale positive impact.
To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for an Engineering Manager to join our Grammarly for Developers team. The person in this role will lead a talented team of software engineers focused on building out and scaling Grammarly’s developer platform; delightful, context-aware communication assistance for end users; state-of-the-art AI/ML and NLP capabilities; easy-to-use and well-documented APIs and SDKs for developers; self-serve developer onboarding experiences; and an integration configuration portal.
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.
