Welcome to ABA English, the full-digital academy specified in English learning!

What is our day-to-day life ? Programming of course, but also touching so many other things! In our company, tech and product genius are working really closely to provide our students the best experience. Our main goal always remains to produce the highest value by playing as a team and thinking together about our next new great feature. To do so, creating maintainable and modular architecture along with refreshing the core experience is our daily battlefield!

Our app is already one step further in its development-life: optimization and quality are the keys. The app may sound simple the way it works but a lot of features are actually offered to our student. Some example are the possibility to study in every moment thanks to the full offline mode, the progress tracking in the course allowing student to follow-up their achievements and keep them highly motivated, the optimization of the different features to take the best advantage of phones and tablets screens, the multi-languages support to have the most accessible course possible. And so on.

If you’re always ready for new technical and creative challenge, you will feel great in ABA !

ABA English Culture 

Here at ABA English we don’t rely on machines to produce our product, we rely on people. With that in mind we constantly strive to provide the best working environment possible to ensure the success of each member of the ABA team. 

When choosing a place to work, we believe culture is one of, if not the most important differentiator. After all, it's where you'll spend the majority of your week! Our office in Barcelona is in a start-up hub for creative businesses. 

When we wake up we look forward to coming in, and find our jobs challenging, stimulating and enjoyable. We take pride in working for a business that's both highly innovative and making a lasting positive impact on the world, and enjoy kicking back after a hard weeks work with an inter-company hangout and beers. Every quarter we try to go out for a cultural or team building event. 


If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, then we would love to hear from you! All applications must be in English.
