Meet DeepL

DeepL is Germany's best-known AI company. We develop neural networks to help people work with language. With DeepL Translator, we have created the world's best machine translation system and made it available free of charge to everyone online. Over the next few years, we aim to make DeepL the world's leading language technology company.

Our goal is to overcome language barriers and bring cultures closer together.

What distinguishes us from other companies?

DeepL (formerly Linguee) was founded by developers and researchers. We focus on the development of new, exciting products, which is why we spend a lot of time actively researching the latest topics. We understand the challenges of developing new products and try to meet them with an agile and dynamic way of working. Our work culture is very open because we want our employees to feel comfortable. In our daily work we use modern technologies - not only to translate texts, but also to create the world's best dictionaries, and solve other language problems.

When we tell people about DeepL as an employer, reactions are overwhelmingly positive. Maybe it's because they have enjoyed our services, or maybe they just want to get on board with our quest to break down language barriers and facilitate communication.

What will you be doing at DeepL?

We’re looking for a motivated self-starter to help us to rapidly grow our Enterprise footprint. You'll be responsible for building relationships with enterprise businesses within Japan, with a focus on both winning new business and maximizing expansion. We are looking for a proven track record as an Enterprise AE, who is passionate about our vision of a world without language barriers. As one of a small, strong team of Enterprise AEs, you will play a key role in shaping our Enterprise processes and playbook.
