Senior Backend Engineer - Localisation

Senior Backend Engineer - LesanThe Nas Company is on a global mission to share incredible stories about amazing people (Nas actually means “people” in Arabic), and inspire others to do the same. We have achieved this by producing world-class content at our Studio and by empowering creators to productise their knowledge at our Academy. 

To achieve our mission, Tech is one of the primary enablers for making our processes smoother and scaling our impact. So, we’re building technology products by creators, for creators. And one of the key tools that we develop is Lesan. It’s our localisation management platform that combines a streamlined subtitling/translation process, a deep understanding of social media, and thoughtful user experience. This is what enabled Nas Daily to grow on Facebook, from just one English page to 13 localised pages – tripling the total number of followers, to 40 millions, in 4 years. In addition, thanks to Lesan, Nas Academy( became one of the few EdTech platforms to offer an inclusive online learning experience through subtitled videos in multiple languages.
