Job Description
The Localization Coordinator will coordinate day-to-day needs from our volunteers to ensure an excellent serving experience as well as providing quality resources to help them serve their heart language community. 

God has placed you on the earth for a reason, at this crucial moment in time. With the smartest tech at our fingertips and more distractions vying for our attention than ever before, the need for the Bible has never been greater. If you’re looking for a place you can combine the skills God has given you with your passion to see people engage with His Word in new ways, the YouVersion Team is the place to start.

The YouVersion Bible App provides our global community the opportunity to read the Bible in nearly 2,500 different languages and interact with the app interface in more than 60 languages, allowing millions of people to draw closer to God through His Word every day in the language they know best. YouVersion’s Global Partnerships and Localization Team is passionate about working with generous partners and volunteers around the world to continue providing the Bible App in more and more languages. 

We’re seeking a Localization Coordinator to support and coordinate day-to-day needs from our volunteers to ensure an excellent serving experience as well as providing quality resources to help them serve their heart language community. From appreciating and celebrating volunteer milestones to effective communication with hundreds of global volunteers, to resourcing leaders and translators to use their gifts for their heart language community, you can ensure our volunteer community has a meaningful engagement experience and helps YouVersion reach more language communities around the world with the Gospel Message.

If you’re a leader and motivator of volunteers who excels at communication, shines on video calls, and has ninja-like administrative skills, read on to find out if you might be a good fit on our team.

Who you are:

    • Able to communicate effectively in written, verbal, and on-camera formats
    • Well-organized and equipped to follow through on timely tasks
    • Someone who loves to find creative ways to motivate, appreciate, and celebrate volunteers

What you'll do:

    • Work on strategies to recruit, retain, and grow our volunteer teams
    • Develop resources that help equip volunteers to best use their gifts
    • Provide administrative support to Localization Team

For bonus points:

    • Speak multiple languages, including English
    • Have worked with volunteers in any capacity
    • Know the differences between localization vs. translation and languages vs. locales
