Over the past year, we’ve experienced tremendous growth. More than 7,500 companies have replaced CVs with our assessments to screen candidates in an unbiased and data-driven way.
As we scale our efforts in 2022 and beyond, we’re looking for a International Expansion Manager  who’s passionate about languages, localization and helping people land dream jobs.

The job in a nutshell

Localization at TestGorilla (or, as we like to call it, international expansion) is centered around linguistic excellence, a great team environment, and cutting-edge technology. 

We are responsible for the translation and cultural adaptation of everything TestGorilla creates, from our scientifically designed skills tests (ranging from coding to personality and cognitive ability tests) to beautiful user interfaces and marketing campaigns that attract customers worldwide. 
Our work is not just about translation, it’s about providing our customers and candidates with an experience that feels local.

As the International Expansion Manager, you will work directly with the Head of Product, train, grow and drive the International Expansion team and develop key relationships with our third-party linguists. You will be directly involved in all International Expansion initiatives and responsible for all elements of the localization workflow of our content, from request creation to job completion. You will become a localization champion. 
This is an amazing opportunity for an International Expansion Manager that is looking to embark on an entrepreneurial journey and is ready to put a dent in the universe! 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Creating, managing and growing the International Expansion team 
  • Implementing and optimizing end-to-end localization workflows using our translation management tools and systems
  • Managing localization projects and requirements across stakeholders
  • Driving high-quality output from localization vendors and freelancers
  • Managing independent projects within the program
  • Working cross-functionally with TestGorilla stakeholders to identify critical business blockers and collaborate to solve and optimize these
  • Identifying and managing project risk through prioritization, bug management, and any other means necessary
  • Managing the localization budget for your projects by gathering data on the cost, timeliness, and quality of your projects
  • Leading project kick-offs and meetings with cross-functional groups for planning
  • Promoting international expansion to stakeholders

Here’s what we are looking for:

  • You are inspired by our mission to put 1 billion of people in dream jobs
  • You are fully aligned with our values
  • You have experience leading a team of project managers
  • You have a strong ability to balance hands-on execution and strategy
  • You have a strong knowledge of industry-standard localization tools
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • You have strong analytical problem-solving skills
  • You are proactive and innovative by nature
  • You have strong attention to detail
  • You are comfortable with the ambiguity and pace of iteration of an early-stage startup
We typically expect candidates with at least 5  y. of experience in project management, preferably working on Localization projects that involve language launches, software, and/or creative content localization, into have the skills mentioned above.

Bonus points if…

  • You have experience working in a SaaS company and a fast-growing startup
  • You are multilingual (for example, English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Dutch)


We don’t offer rainbow glitter unicorns or dog-friendly offices (we literally don’t have an office), but we do offer real people, solid core values, and a product meant to give everyone a fair, unbiased chance at their dream jobs.
Here at TestGorilla, we eat our own dog food. We use our assessment platform to make sure we make the best hiring decisions, faster and bias-free.
So if this role sounds like a good fit for you, I’d like you to take an assessment so we can get a better idea of whether you would be the perfect fit for this role. It’s also a great opportunity for you to get to know our product!
If you’re hired, I’ll do everything I can to help you succeed at TestGorilla and throughout the rest of your career.
