French-English Bilingual Script Supervisor

About us

Our mission is to reinvent the way people learn, starting with language. We begin by teaching the next billion people English, Spanish, and French.

English is the global language of business, culture, and communication, and over 1.5 billion people around the world are actively trying to learn right now. Others dream of communicating with the half-billion native Spanish speakers across the globe. The problem is that it's nearly impossible to learn to speak a language without constant access to a speaking partner. Grammar and vocab apps don't really help – you need to actually converse with someone.

Speak is on a journey to fix this. We're creating an AI-powered experience that replicates the flow of a conversation, without needing a human on the other end. The goal is to make it radically more accessible to be able to have conversations in a foreign language and eventually help hundreds of millions of people gain fluency who otherwise wouldn't be able to.

We started on this journey over five years ago and we've still got a long ways to go. We're thoughtfully adding new team members only when we think they can truly play a big role in our mission.

Speak launched first in South Korea where we have quickly grown to become the top grossing education app in the country. We have now delivered this winning product to more than 30 countries globally and are continuing to expand to more markets in the coming months. The company is well funded, raising a recent Series B backed by investors like OpenAI, Founders Fund, Y Combinator, Khosla Ventures, Lachy Groom, Josh Buckley, and others. We’re a team of 75 based primarily in SF, Seoul, Tokyo, and Ljubljana.

About this role

We are seeking Native French and English speakers to support the director and the French-English bilingual actor during virtual and in-studio rehearsals and shoots in our LA studio for our app-based video lessons. During shoots, you’ll be seated off-screen and read along the teleprompter to ensure the actor is delivering lines correctly when explaining language concepts and phrases for learners. While these lessons are not live, they are interactive.

Scripts also contain questions to the user and a variety of responses based on their performance. When a user goes through a video lesson, the video recording of the teaching will play, along with opportunities for the app user to practice the language we are teaching.

What you’ll be doing

  • Read scripts from the teleprompter in both French and English to monitor the actor’s reading performance as they teach French to English speakers.
  • Guide the actor and assist the director during script reading rehearsals
  • Example Video:
