About the role

You will get to work with our Classroom Experiences team, imagining the future of our teacher and student apps!

  • Partner with research to test design work at critical junctures and use these findings to validate design decisions and adjust accordingly.
  • Present UX and design work often and openly, seeking feedback from stakeholders and keeping wider audiences informed.
  • Contribute to, and align design work with, our internal design system where possible.
  • Provide constructive and thoughtful feedback that creates a safe space to freely ideate and collaborate.
  • Be curious, open, positive, collaborative and empathetic.
  • Think like an owner – scrappy, proactive, organized and detailed.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years of experience in visual and UX design, research methodologies, and product design.
  • Experience designing for touch screens.
  • · Strong visual eye and portfolio demonstrating modern and clean design (typography, color, grid, layout).
  • Foundational knowledge and experience using UX principles and UCD (user-centered design) methodologies.
  • Experience creating artifacts such as wireframes, user flows, functionality specs, prototypes and high-fidelity design.
  • Ability to use qualitative and quantitative data (as well as a strong gut instinct) to make informed design decisions and establish hypotheses.
  • Experience working cross-functionally with product teams and engineers.
  • Understanding of viewports, responsive design and grid structure.
  • Functional understanding of design systems.
  • Ability and desire to communicate design vision clearly and fearlessly across all teams, early and often.
  • Ability to receive and give constructive feedback in a positive manner.
  • Proficiency with design programs such as Figma, Adobe CC, etc.

  • Extra Credit
  • Accessibility expertise and/or experience designing for those with disabilities (temporary or permanent)
  • Experience designing for software purchasing and management processes.
  • Experience creating motion design (micro-interaction and other) – tools, techniques and understanding of how motion enhances the UI, focuses attention, creates hierarchy, and provides important user feedback.
