The Role:

Join Carrot Fertility and become a Localization Program Manager! You will define and build out our localization function from the ground up by partnering with other teams across the organization and engaging with external vendors. You will be a key contributor in defining our localization strategy and will plan and execute a variety of language localization projects while ensuring a great customer experience and speedy time to market.


  • Lead our language localization and translation strategy.
  • Design and implement efficient and scalable end-to-end localization frameworks and processes for our software and content.
  • Deeply understand target markets, languages, and cultural contexts in order to support the optimal end-user experience for each geo.
  • Project manage end-to-end localization or translation projects while partnering with internal product, design, engineering, marketing, customer-facing teams, and external vendors.
  • Stay on top of risks and determine mitigation strategies that allow the organization to move forward.
  • Manage all the details to optimize for an ideal outcome: a high-quality localized experience, speed to market and/or within budget deliverables.

  • Excellent communication and organization skills. The ability to explain complex concepts in a simple way and provide high level summaries and drill downs to the details, when necessary.
