A tech scale-up with big plans!

Founded in 2017, Lokalise has hired 200+ people across 41 countries (and counting!), raised $50m of series B funding, and brought on-board customers such as Revolut, Miro, Starbucks, and Mastercard to name but a few.

Not bad, eh?

What we do

Businesses like Hyundai use our localisation platform to bring developers, designers and translators together in one virtual workspace. They use our platform to translate and localise content so it can be delivered across the web, apps, documents and even games to customers in their native languages.

Simply put: companies that localize can connect with over 8 billion people on the planet. 

Please note that we are required to add a location to job ads, but Lokalise is a fully remote company, and you can work from anywhere.
