About Us

Perlego is building the ‘Spotify’ of Textbooks. We are making learning much more affordable, and accessible for students and employees alike by taking on the mission of building a learning eBook subscription service that gives users unlimited access to over 400,000+ professional and academic titles, for less than the price of a single book.

With global expansion on the horizon, a brand new office space, modern Tech Stack and our latest funding round closed, we are looking for multiple new hires to come and join us on our journey. We are a team of 55 people, with 22 nationalities, and 2 office dogs. We love to learn, enjoy weekly team breakfasts and have monthly team-building trips some of which have included trips to a French Chateau – a far cry from our Chancery Lane based WeWork home.


We offer a fantastic workplace at the heart of Central London. We offer a competitive salary, a personal development budget, flexible work hours and the opportunity to design the way millions of students will read and learn. We foster a unique company culture championing self-empowerment, personal development, direct communication and mutual support.

Ability to work with product teams to establish exactly what is needed to make your initiatives a reality.

Help establish all content opportunities available to Perlego.

Topic & Keyword Research

Map topics and the keywords associated with those topics to content we can create.

Research problems our potential customers are trying to solve.
Experience researching how other websites are using content, SEO, PR and marketing to generate traffic and acquire users.

Content Creation

Ability to write a content brief that is clear, concise and clearly linked to your initiative.

Able to create content to engage and educate our potential customers.

Testing & Site Optimisation

Testing to improve content keyword rankings, engagement and conversion.

Experience with, or desire to learn CRO software to optimise the content you have published.

Ability to take ownership of updating content with additional keywords/topics that might have been attributed to the content by Google (what is the content ranking on page 2 for, what can we add to the guide to bring those rankings up).

Find opportunities for internal linking to your content, and where your content can link to on the website.

Title tag research and experimentation.

Meta description research and experimentation.


Measure the impact of your initiatives and clearly explain what has been achieved to the wider business.

Identify websites whose audiences would benefit from the content you have created.
