Duolingo is the world’s #1 way to learn a language, with more than 300 million learners worldwide. We’re here to develop the best education in the world and make it universally available. Our global team of Duos work together to make learning fun, free and effective for anyone who wants to learn, wherever they are.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We work hard to foster an environment where everyone feels valued — no matter who they are, where they’re from, and how they identify. Building a representative workforce is up to all of us. We know that diverse teams yield better results. Our workforce needs to reflect who’s learning on our platforms in order to understand and meet their needs. Duolingo is for everyone, and that starts with the people who work here.
