About us

We are an international team from all over the world, speaking a variety of languages.

Our office is a place where people enjoy learning about different cultures and practicing their language


If you want to get to know us a little more, watch our culture video on the busuu you tube channel.

On your first day: Please introduce yourself on our slack channel #hiiamnew telling the team who you are

and what you do, what languages you speak/learn and who you will be working with. It’s always nice to

post a random fun fact about yourself, so feel free to do so!

Intro to our culture

Here's the bottom line. There are plenty of ways of getting things done but there are five qualities that we'll

never compromise on at busuu.

So the final must have you need to work at busuu is a commitment to the values that are central to our business

- being Trust, Effictiveness, Ambitions, Curiosity and happiness. Get the acronym? Yes that’s right, they say


Living these five values is an essential part of working here. It's sort of fundamental.

Our perks
