To improve lives by improving communication

The opportunity

Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. Every day, 30 million people around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant. All of this begins with our team collaborating in a values-driven and learning-oriented environment.

To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for an experienced Technical Program Manager to join our Interfaces and Growth group, whose work directly impacts millions of users. This group is made up of curious life-long learners who get excited about solving novel technical challenges at scale. The task of the Interfaces team is to create seamless, thoughtful ways for users to directly access Grammarly’s sophisticated AI system at any time—whether it be on the web or on their mobile devices. The Growth team is responsible for improving various business metrics like upgrade rates, retention, and lifetime value across our broad product suite. As the company grows, the amount of large cross-functional projects grows with it, demanding a dedicated role to oversee this new collaboration and coordination.

Grammarly’s engineers and researchers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs—and, in turn, influence our product roadmap. The complexity of our technical challenges is growing rapidly as we scale our interfaces, algorithms, and infrastructure. Read more about our stack or hear from our team on our technical blog.

  • Take a holistic view across the greater Interface and Growth Engineering group, identifying points to improve collaboration/reuse and reduce redundancy.
  • Exercise technical judgment in evaluating projects and their potential solutions.
