Grammarly offers a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members can work primarily remotely. Teams will meet in person every quarter in one of Grammarly’s hubs, currently in San Francisco, Vancouver, New York, and Kyiv. To ensure that teams are able to overlap in their working hours and to meet face-to-face when needed, all team members need to live within three time zones of their direct team. Grammarly team members in this role must be based in Canada or the United States. The opportunity  Grammarly empowers people to thrive and connect, whenever and wherever they communicate. Every day, 30 million people and 30,000 teams around the world use our AI-powered writing assistant. 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 a Software Engineer to join our On-Device Machine Learning team. This role will help build a more private and reliable version of Grammarly that is fully offline and can function exclusively on a user’s device—whether it’s a phone, tablet, laptop, or browser. It’s a great way to explore every part of Grammarly’s system and understand all of its components, from the classic NLP pipelines with parsers and text classifiers to the cutting-edge deep learning models that now power the Grammarly system.   Grammarly’s engineers and researchers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs—and, in turn, influence our product roadmap.
