The opportunity

Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. More than 20 million people around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant every day. 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 Engineering Manager to lead our Grammarly Editor engineering team. The person in this role will lead a talented team of software engineers focused on developing Grammarly’s web and desktop-based editor application.

Your impact

Our text editor experience is the primary interface for users to put their ideas on the page, refine them, and write the best version of their thoughts. The Editor team enables other teams to bring this essential editing experience to every place where people write. The Grammarly Editor is a foundational part of Grammarly’s vision of creating a comprehensive writing assistant.
