Design and user experience (UX) are at the heart of how teachers and coaches connect with our applications and the work they do together at BetterLesson.

You will help launch the product by testing it — working with the engineering team to ensure that the code and interactions match up to the design. At each stage, you will be a user advocate and ensure that the final product delights both users and stakeholders.
