God has placed you on the earth for a reason, at this crucial moment in time. He’s given you a purpose. 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—no matter where they are or what languages they speak—the YouVersion Team is the place to start. 
With over 6,000 spoken languages and the majority of the world on 3G or slower mobile connections, the YouVersion Team is inventing technical solutions that create a first-class Bible experience for every person regardless of their heart language or location. We’re seeking a Software Engineering Manager who will be responsible for leading a cross-functional team of engineers working on mobile applications and APIs. You’ll work alongside world-class programmers to solve complex problems as you strive to make the Bible accessible in every language, everywhere on earth, on systems that are used by millions every day.
