Here at MotaWord, we work hard to build the world’s fastest, lowest-cost, cloud-based, and collaborative business translation platform. We provide translation service in 90 languages, 55 countries, and through the work of over 17 thousand translators.

We generate data on the client-side and on the vendor side, we learn through process experimentation and work on building algorithms that can replace human project managers on translation projects.

We allow our clients to order translation services through our award-winning website, mobile apps, our solid API, multiple plug-ins, and extensions and we want to grow that. As we want to speed up and provide our solutions to the translation ecosystem in an even faster and better way, we are looking for talented software developers.

We want you to join our team where we enjoy the freedom to innovate with a variety of technologies in a truly international entourage.

You will utilize your programming and software design skills to design and maintain the most intuitive mobile applications for our customers and translators. If you are a resourceful team player who does not shy away from taking responsibility in all stages of development for a new venture, we want to meet you.

Our HQ is located in New York City, but we are wizards of remote-working also. We document everything and hold impromptu Google Hangouts meetings any time of the day to bring our teams closer to target.


  • TypeScript
  • Latest versions of reacting, react-redux, react-native
  • Private packages on npmjs

We are a highly interactive group, so you will feel free to contribute in any stage and aspect of the development. We have two core values that we expect from our colleagues: research and learn from each other. We truly enjoy helping each other out, as long as you do your homework.


  • Develop new features for all aspects of our mobile app, from real-time collaborative translation experience to smart and intuitive workflows for our customers
