Citymapper is built for locals; one app that makes people feel like a local in cities across the world. Your mission is to ensure the app speaks with one voice across all languages - the bits of the app that you’ll manage are seen by millions of commuters every day (no pressure).

This role requires project management superpowers. You’ll coordinate with different teams both internally and externally - from the mobile team and design team, to internal polyglot colleagues and external translation vendors - to make sure new features ship on time in all languages with consistent tone and top quality.

As you get deeper into the role you’ll continuously challenge the status quo and push for improvements to make the localisation workflow more efficient: new tools, new processes, new external partners, new languages.

Citymapper’s main office is in London, and we also support hybrid and remote work within the UK.
