Blue Canoe is seeking a Mobile Application Developer to join our team and help us build a revolutionary solution to help millions of people around the world improve their English pronunciation.

This position is full-time based in Bellevue, WA.

Blue Canoe is the English pronunciation expert. We are a well-funded start up with an experienced and successful leadership team that is focused on improving the English pronunciation of non-native speakers, the challenging “last mile” of learning English. Mastery of English pronunciation is mission-critical for hundreds of millions of jobs around the world, and enables people to be truly effective and able to build empathy and rapport with customers and colleagues.

Our pronunciation platform includes a mobile app that engages English learners through a spoken game and other learning activities, using speech recognition and machine learning, and provides learners with personalized feedback for improvement. We were selected to be part of Paul Allen’s Institute for Artificial Intelligence incubator (AI2), are patent-pending, have deployments in the US and in 15 other countries around the world with stellar brand-name companies, won a Tech Impact Award, and are growing quickly.

About the role:

At Blue Canoe, you’ll play a key role in a small (5-person) dev team, and each of your coworkers will be among the best at what they do. We all help out wherever we’re needed, so versatility and flexibility are critical, but you’ll also have ownership of one or more key pieces of our technology. If you enjoy taking on hard problems, and having the autonomy to see a project through from conception to release, this role is for you!

We would love to hear from you if:

  • You have 4+ years of experience in a software engineering position
  • You have developed and published mobile applications for iOS (Objective-C or Swift) and/or Android (Java).
  • You have earned a Bachelor’s degree in computer science (or equivalent experience)
  • You have a passion for building clean code & beautiful UIs
