Senior Product Designer vacancy at Speechify
Speechify is the #1 text-to-speech app, built for your busy life.
Our amazing users are students, professionals, and productivity lovers. Many of them have learning differences like dyslexia and ADHD, while many just want to read faster and listen on the go. With Speechify you can turn any book, document, or website into audio, and listen while you’re in the car, doing laundry, walking your dog, making dinner, working out, skydiving—whatever your daily routine is!
Cliff Weitzman, our fearless CEO, founded Speechify in 2017 so he could share with others the incredible text-to-speech software he’d been working on. Cliff has dyslexia and he was frustrated with how much time and energy it took for him to read. Advanced text-to-speech technology was a total gamechanger, it allowed him to finish his readings 3x faster than a normal reader and to better comprehend and retain information.
At Speechify our goal is for reading to never be a barrier to learning for anyone. Whether you have dyslexia, ADHD, low vision, or are learning English as a second language, this shouldn’t hold you back from learning information quickly and effectively.
