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.
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!
