Many of our teammates have spent over a decade working on the goal of universal information access. This isn’t a job to us. It’s a calling. We love nothing more than recruiting talented peers. Join Us

Who We're Looking For

We seek teammates who share our values:


The tricky combination of humility, grit, and competence (i.e., professional excellence). Competent people are never satisfied; they always want to improve. While they may need organizational structure, they rarely need motivation.


Find a way. We look for people who are independently motivated and resourceful. They get things done in spite of adversity. They are self-managing.


Those who stay will be great. We’re working on a big problem that will take some time to solve. We need people who will persevere.


No jerks. We value manners and tact. We believe that it’s important to treat all people (colleagues, customers, service providers) respectfully and courteously.


We hire service-oriented people who represent the company well. Every person that we hire reflects our culture, mission, and values.


We hire people who care about solving core problems for humanity, of which natural language understanding generally and language translation specifically are two significant examples.


We like to hire people who have a personal connection to the problem of language barriers. Maybe they have a relative who doesn’t speak English. Maybe they struggled to attain a professional level of proficiency in another language.

Working & thriving go hand-in-hand at Lilt.

“Starting as a translation student in 2015 I've watched the steady growth of technology in the industry and can say that Lilt is perhaps even further ahead of its competition today than it was at its inception. Working with Lilt has been a dream of mine from the first time I used the product and I am thrilled to make that dream a reality.”

“Although challenging, it has been very enriching and satisfying. My opinion has mattered from day one and my work has impacted deeply in the company. Together with a very supportive mindset, I love the recognition we all get from the work that we do. The working environment communicates very openly which also makes the time difference to be barely noticed.”
