Build beautiful user experiences and products from the ground up with our growing design team. In your first 90 days: you will ramp up on our growth product experiences and website as they are today, then work with our Head of Design, Sr Product Designer, Head of Product & CTO on the product roadmap. You will ideate with those key stakeholders on a new public facing site and then design and deliver product solutions from start to finish that drive new students.
You have worked with increasing responsibility on 2-4 successful launches from start to finish (a few failures are OK too). By from start to finish, we mean you identified or were given a problem to solve, designed a solution and delivered it to engineering. It was then built and went live.
