Careers at Tandem

Let’s invent the future of learning together

Who we are

We are a team of digital innovators and language enthusiasts, hailing from all corners of the world.

Together, we are on a mission to build a product that not only teaches a new skill but also encourages cross-cultural conversations.

We are inspired by the success of our members and the impact Tandem has on everyone’s learning journeys. This sense of community drives us to tackle new challenges and continue to connect people across the globe in meaningful ways.

What we value

Commitment to Learning Care & Community Expertise & Growth Transparency & Autonomy Cultural Diversity

What you can expect

Passion for languages

We're a team of 24 people speaking 20 languages fluently between us. For those wanting to improve their German (or Denglisch!), you can join one of our German classes on us. We also run regular Spanish, Russian, and German lunches!

Take a deep dive

As a Tandem team member, we’ll give you a budget for up to 6 “Deep Dive Days” per year. Pick a topic you’ve always wanted to explore for your professional development that has never made it out of your backlog. Then book a cabin in the woods or whatever matches your individual learning style.

Teams who train together, stay together

We offer Urban Sports Club gym memberships to boost our team’s physical and mental health. If you prefer, we'll contribute to your monthly public transport ticket instead.

It takes a team to Tandem

Bonding with our teammates outside of our normal work routine is important to us. We organize regular team events: from day trips to weekly lunches, to Friday beers, summer BBQs, and board games.

Balance matters

Life isn’t just about work. We know when to snooze Slack notifications, recharge our batteries, and take time out for our personal hobbies. As we’re mostly working from home right now, it’s even more important to be able to switch off from work and relax.

Modern family

As part of our family-friendly company philosophy, we embrace flexible working hours, welcome families to our events, and love for our kids to visit the office and get a taste of life at Tandem.

An office that sparks joy

Our open-plan working oasis is located in the heart of Berlin-Mitte. We offer a free choice of IT setup and whatever tech you require. As an added bonus, our kitchen is always fully stocked with free drinks, healthy snacks, and fresh fruit.


Relocation without the stress

If you’re looking to relocate to Berlin, we’re ready to assist you with the infamous German bureaucracy. Many of us have been through it before, so we have plenty of tips to share. You’ll feel settled in no time.
