  • It might be helpful if you possess a degree in English language/literature, Journalism, Business Communications/Public Communications, Translation, or Public Policy (even though it’s not critical for this position).
  • Why is working at Infermedica awesome?

  • You choose the form of employment according to your preferences - we are flexible.
  • Interview steps

  • A short call with selected candidates. It would take about 30-40 minutes.
  • A translation assignment as homework. You would have 2 working days to do the task in the most comfortable time.
  • Next, a team interview is planned. A meeting with the Translation Manager to discuss your assignment and better understand your experience, expectations, and motivation. This would be done remotely and could take about 1,5 hours in total.
