Everyone deserves access to world-class opportunities for education and professional development, but the vast majority of high-quality learning and development material is encoded in one language: English. Billions of people are being left behind. Slang is closing this knowledge gap with the largest offering of professional English courses anywhere.
Slang was born at MIT out of the collaboration between two students, Diego and Kamran. Through Diego’s personal experiences — watching the employees of his companies in Latin America and his international classmates at MIT struggle with field-specific English — he realized that there was no English-learning solution on the market that could meet the needs of professionals and businesses, needs that go beyond basic English.
Kamran’s expertise in ML and NLP was the missing piece to make this dream a reality. Together, they developed the cutting-edge algorithms that form the backbone of Slang’s adaptive approach.
We have a flexible, adaptable culture and a relatively flat organizational structure. We focus on being collaborative over hierarchy-oriented, and we believe good ideas can come from any experience level.
Our culture is results-oriented, built on trust and autonomy. Every Slanger is encouraged to cultivate a continuous improvement mindset and find new ways to operate.
We are a people-oriented company: we encourage a healthy work-life balance among our team members and do our best to take care of it.
We’re committed to creating and sustaining a healthy work environment where every team member feels respected, valued, safe, and able to realize their full potential. Every Slanger can create the career path they seek without fear of stereotyping, unequal opportunities, or other forms of discrimination.
Our team is currently lucky enough to include people from Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, the United States, Nigeria, and Rwanda. We’re working to expand the range of cultural backgrounds among our teams and to ensure gender balance within each area as the company grows.
We don’t assume that the current way things are done is the best way they can be done, and we push the boundaries to try new things.
The passion, perseverance, and growth mindset required to achieve goals.
A humble and gracious approach to understanding and learning from others, with a willingness to share and recognize diversity while relying on it to guide your actions.
The focus and attention on producing output that we are proud of and excited to share.
