We are a language service provider (LSP) with a full-time team of 15 people. Our number of freelancers, translators, and voice-over artists currently stands at 800, and it continues to grow daily on a global scale.

We continue to sustain our presence as a company with high international visibility, closely following and utilizing technology, and placing development at the forefront of everything we do. Our commitment to progress drives us forward to achieve even greater accomplishments.

After officially starting to work together, you will undergo a training process that typically lasts for 1-4 weeks. During this period, you will complete your training by following the videos and written materials we have prepared specifically for your position. During your training, we will conduct 2-4 question-and-answer sessions to address any inquiries or clarifications you may have. During your first 4 months, you will be on a probationary period. In this period, we will work together to create a working schedule that allows you to adapt to your new role seamlessly. We conduct periodic evaluation meetings to assess your progress and performance. After the second month and depending on your progress, we will fully transition the tasks and responsibilities of your position to you.

Question 1: Should I have previous experience in the translation or localization services sector?
Answer 1: Above all, we expect you to have experience in sales and business development.

During the onboarding process, you will be provided with internal training to quickly learn about the translation industry.

Question 2: Can you provide information about your company's customer portfolio?
Answer 2: Our company's customer portfolio is quite diverse. We have many customers ranging from small businesses to large corporate companies, operating in various sectors, who require the services we provide. In this position, you will often need to communicate with individuals from different countries. Therefore, we expect you to speak English fluently.

Answer 5: It is a remote and full-time position. In our remote work model, you can work from anywhere you choose, as long as you can provide the necessary working conditions (a distraction-free environment and a reliable internet connection). When you start working with us full-time, you will become an employee with benefits, not an independent contractor. We work from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM on weekdays. We dedicate weekends to ourselves and our loved ones by not working during that time. In the Business Development Manager position, unlike other roles, there may be opportunities for travel due to reasons such as attending fairs and visiting customers. The availability of this opportunity will depend on how well you perform in your job.



Please understand that we will only get back to you if you can meet the requirements for this position. Please feel free to send your applications with your resume, motivation letter, and reference letter(s) to


We are eagerly looking forward to having you among us!
