Perlego is building the ‘Spotify’ of Textbooks.
We are making learning much more affordable, and accessible for students and employees alike by taking on the mission of building a learning eBook subscription service that gives users unlimited access to over 200,000+ professional and academic titles, for less than the price of a single book.
With a European expansion on the horizon, a brand new office space, modern Tech Stack and our latest funding round closed, we are looking for multiple new hires to come and join us on our journey. We are a team of 36 people, with 17 nationalities, and 1 office dog. We love to learn, enjoy weekly team breakfasts and have monthly team-building trips some of which have included trips to a French Chateau – a far cry from our Chancery Lane based WeWork home.
We offer a fantastic workplace at the heart of Central London. We offer a competitive salary, a personal development budget, flexible work hours and the opportunity to design the way millions of students will read and learn. We foster a unique company culture championing self-empowerment, personal development, direct communication and mutual support.
