UX and Visual Designer

Pathstream - San Francisco, California or Remote - Full time

At Pathstream, we are on a mission to create radical impact on career and economic mobility, through high quality and accessible career-focused education. To do so, we are building an online platform which teaches job-critical tech skills, and completely changes the nature of the online learning experience. Whereas most online learning consists of passive video lectures, Pathstream users learn and build career skills within actual software platforms that are authentically used on the job, ensuring they are ready to perform in a real work environment. Throughout the courses, users build a portfolio which demonstrates their skills and ultimately earn a certification from the relevant software platform company, both of which ensure that their efforts translate into actual career mobility.

We are building courses for our first two major clients, Facebook on Digital Marketing and Unity on VR/AR. We are additionally establishing partnerships with 25 colleges across the country to ensure these courses and skills are accessible to traditional learners as well as working adults.
