Mango Languages hires 13, moves to bigger Farmington Hills office

Mango Languages is best summed up with one word these days growth. The Farmington Hills-based start-up has enjoyed triple-digit revenue growth that has pushed it into double-digit job creation.

"We have grown more than 100 percent year after year over the last three years," says Beverly Cornell, director of marketing and social media for Mango Languages. "We have been extremely focused."

The foreign language instruction provider has expanded to a staff of 35 employees, two independent contractors, and a couple of interns in Metro Detroit over the last year. It also employs another 150 independent contractors around the world. That's after it hired 13 people and created work for about 100 independent contractors over the last year. It has four job openings now in sales, design, and software.

moved to new offices in July, occupying 10,000 square feet and becoming the anchor tenant in its building. The move is expected to provide enough space for its anticipated expansion over the next few years, which should include 200 percent revenue growth and another 10 hires over the next year.

"We have some very high goals," Cornell says.

Mango Language's primary product helps users master foreign languages. That product has been adopted by libraries across the country, such as New York and Seattle. The firm expects to double the number of languages offered to 70 within the next four months. It's also expanding its product line to include an iPhone app, MP3 version, and more niche products aimed at sectors such as federal government agencies and general consumers.
