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 annual 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.
