Senior Product Designer

About the job

We’re on a mission to connect every teacher, student and parent in the world to improve education. As a Senior Product Designer, you will be involved in everything from user experience design, brainstorming, visual design, user research and insights, to working alongside engineers from inception to launch to “get it just right”. Our Product team is dedicated to redefining classroom communication and we are looking for a designer who is passionate about delighting teachers through elegant interactions and a beautifully simple interface.

About us

We believe great education is the first step to solving many of the world’s most pressing problems. Our purpose is to build products to make it easier for teachers to provide that education.

Teachers are busy. Our mission is to make tools that are simple to use, but highly effective. Signing up takes less than two minutes on the website, iPhone app, or Android app, and it only takes seconds for students or parents to join a class. Safety is a primary feature, teachers never see students/parents phone numbers, nor will students/parents see theirs.

The connected classroom is rapidly evolving. We help innovative teachers take advantage of technology in a way that frees up their time to focus on what they do best: teach. Join us in our mission!

    - Partner with Engineers, other Designers, Product Managers, and Growth Experts to release products and features.
    - Constantly pushing your limits and searching for opportunities to make a better product and become a better designer.
    - Experience bringing ideas in to production using HTML/CSS/JavaScript and visualizing interactivity (using tools such as Flash, After Effects, Unity, etc).

Requirements

    - 5+ years experience as a User Experience Designer, Product Designer, or Interaction Designer
    - Experience with user experience and visual design for mobile and web
    - Familiar with technical challenges, design patterns, and asset production for iOS and Android
