You are a talented, hard working human being who is hungry to do big things. You’re a doer. You’ve got the imagination to design heretofore unseen study experiences, and the experience to see that they get shipped. You’re organized, and it shows.

You maximize utility and minimize effort for users. You’d rather call users “people”. You believe, as we do, that the product experience is the core of the brand.

You’re comfortable working quickly and collaboratively, iterating towards a solution. Your taste exceeds your ability, but only just. You reconcile attention to detail with a broad product vision to deliver delightful, seamless, multi-device experiences for students worldwide. Your work speaks for itself, and when called upon, you can articulately speak for your work.

The idea of millions of students relying on a product you dreamt up then designed energizes you. You’re up for changing education, for everybody, forever.

The job.

As UI Designer you’ll move product from sketching (wireframes and workflows) to shipping (hi-res comps and production-ready assets). You’ll work closely with the Senior UI Designer to ensure your designs embody and/or extend user experience, brand identity and business goal requirements. You’ll also collaborate with developers to ensure your designs are realized in the way you intended.
