Senior Visual Interaction Designer


Our aim is simple – we want to build the strongest design team in Berlin.

Babbel is at the center of a language learning revolution. We defined the market for online language learning, and we’re about to embark on an exciting new journey to change the way people learn.

If you’ve got a passion for designing truly outstanding products, along with the portfolio to back it up, we want to hear from you. You’ll be an integral part of an interdisciplinary, international team with the opportunity to work on a variety of projects from learning through games to shaping habit change.

In return, we offer fantastic opportunities to learn and evolve within a dynamic and fast-growing startup. And, of course, you’ll be working on a product that improves the lives of millions of people.

This is a full time role, based in the heart of Berlin’s buzzing Kreuzberg district.


– Change the way people learn. Your ideas will impact the way millions of users experience a new language.
– Design to delight, as well as to serve. The actual needs of our users are at the core of every decision we make at Babbel.
– Design in an agile environment. You’ll collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to find innovative solutions to our users’ problems.
– Teamwork. You know that good teamwork is essential to shipping the best experience possible. To that effect, you’ll be a strong communicator with the ability to inspire others and elevate design across the company.
– Continuous curiosity. You’ll keep yourself informed of the latest design and tech trends in order to adopt new ideas as opportunities arise.


– A strong and diverse portfolio. Show us what you can do. Ideally, you’ll have examples of designs produced at various stages of the development process. Please note that we are unable to consider applications without an attached portfolio.
– A minimum four years of experience designing mobile apps in an agile environment.
– Strong prototyping skills at various levels of fidelity.
