Apply for this job

At Flatiron School, we’re helping people get a chance to change their career, as well as enable them to pursue a better life through education. We’re building Learn.co, an online platform for teaching and learning technical skills like coding and data science. Everyone's passionate about technology and education here, and we're designing and building tools that will shape the future of education for the better.

We are looking for a talented Senior Product Designer to help bring to life digital learning products to support the School's mission. This individual should have a strong design philosophy, prize simplicity and be able to handle a variety of projects across multiple platforms. You'll be joining a lean product and design team where your work will have a big impact on the product.

This is a great opportunity for someone that wants to be involved in education and technology and is excited about building tools for education.

What you’ll do

  • Work through design problems from beginning to end: translating insights into ideas that form a meaningful and delightful user experience
  • Create user flows, wireframes and prototypes that bring to life ambitious plans and generate productive discussion
  • Collaborate with product managers and cross-functional teams, as well as with our students, to create, iterate on and communicate designs
  • Give and solicit feedback from other designers and engineers in order to continually raise our bar for design quality
  • Push and evolve our design process and be an advocate for design thinking
  • Be scrappy and help test software as it is built

What we’re looking for

  • You have experience designing digital products and systems, not just websites. You have already helped ship products.
  • You're excited about the prospect of working on a team with other designers, sharing feedback and teaching each other
  • You're self-directed and know when to embrace ambiguity – you enjoy being in a situation where you don’t know the answer, and are driven to try and figure it out, even if it means failing or asking for help.
  • You have strong communication skills, precise attention to details and ability to articulate ideas
  • You know when to apply, manage, and adapt design fidelity to the project you are on
  • You have mastered Sketch and know your way through other design tools (Zeplin, Principle, Invision, Atomic), as well as like exploring new tools
  • You have a coherent understanding of web capabilities, including HTML, CSS, and Javascript (bonus points for coding proficiency and use GitHub).
  • You have a portfolio that showcase your recent work highlighting your responsibilities, iterations of wireframes and prototypes, and impeccable UI design.
