The Opportunity

Cambly is building a world where language helps unlock people’s potential. More than 1.5B people around the world are trying to improve their English, and we believe that we can accelerate their journey by disrupting the traditional language learning dynamic.

The language learning industry is stale, fragmented, and doesn't work for most people who are serious about learning English. Rote memorization, traditional classroom-based instruction, and online vocabulary games don’t take people far. Language is learned through active and immersive moments on a recurring basis. Cambly has built the most comprehensive, technology-forward English learning program available, centered around conversational learning with native speakers and an AI-enabled learning assistant capable of telling learners the best way to use their time based on personal progress, goals, the time and effort they have available, and other data.

Generative AI is finally beginning to unlock the promise of advanced education, and internet-native marketplaces have enabled access to education in ways we have only begun to explore. This is a pivotal moment to join our team, offering a unique experience that blends Silicon Valley's innovative spirit with Turkey's deep cultural richness, and rapidly changing education landscape.
