We create tools that empower people and teams around the world to do more and stress less and, as a freelance translator, you will play a key role in helping us inspire the global workplace of the future.

We work hard to provide an amazing, localized experience– when your productivity app speaks your same language, you can focus on your most important tasks right away.

In this role, you will deliver excellent translation services, delighting our customers with localized app, help, and marketing content.

You will also be responsible for identifying and addressing linguistic issues, and maintaining language references such as a glossary and style guide.

* Native-level fluency in English and Swedish

* At least 2 years of translation experience, preferably for a tech company

* Demonstrated passion for localization quality and consistency

* Extremely proactive work style with the ability to deliver on a tight schedule

* Bonus: an understanding of translation management tools, glossary, translation memory

Who we are and what we value

At Doist, we’ve always questioned the conventional way of doing things. While other startups live and die on VC funding, we’ve built our company independently and sustainably. While other companies seek a quick exit by acquisition, our team doubles down on our long-term vision.

Our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a calmer, more balanced, more fulfilling way of working and living. We value simplicity over complexity, democracy over hierarchy, and craft over credentials.

The Doist team’s core values are: responsibility + independence, passion + craftsmanship, awareness + balance, team-player, respect + professionalism, clear communication, focus + impact, self-mastery, and courage.

BENEFITS

Doist is a diverse, remote-first team that’s committed to building a sustainable company that will continue to grow for decades to come. Our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a calmer, more balanced, more fulfilling way of working and living.

Some benefits include:

* Flexible schedule and location: this is a remote freelance position, so you are free to work from wherever you please on whatever schedule works best for you

* Joining a dynamic international team that spans 20 countries
