We are looking for a thoughtful, talented Visual / UI designer (and design thinker) to join the team to help shape a product that's used by millions of professionals, students, teachers, and parents around the world to realize their potential and where ideas take shape.

We are a digital note-taking product focused primarily on education. We are creating powerful learning & collaboration tools that meet the changing educational strategies and needs of our users, while also supporting inclusive & adaptive learning. World-class visual and interaction design is a key component to the success of our mission.

The ideal candidate:
• You are passionate about creating beautiful, crafted, meaningful interfaces and interactions with clarity and precision. You understand the critical role that visual design plays as part of user experience. You think about the big picture, the brand, and most importantly, the user from concept to execution.
• Demonstrated experience with some combination of Identity, Brand, and/ or Marketing.
• You deeply understand the fundamentals of modern visual design (and its roots in the Swiss tradition), and are able to articulate these principles both in your work and verbally to others. Your mastery of these fundamentals should be apparent in your UI designs.
• You collaborate well with team members across multiple disciplines from Design, Engineering, and Business to understand the opportunities and right problems to solve for, and then find elegant, practical solutions. You have a pixel-perfect attention to detail in your process and the implementation of your work in the finished product. Your dedication to craftsmanship in product is of the highest order.
• You are a clear, articulate communicator, and are able to share your work and thinking persuasively. Your design approach is knowledgeable and deliberate, informed by principles of good visual design (through high-level proficiency of composition, structure, visual narrative, and typography) and the needs of the user. You thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment.
• Your main consideration is the overall product experience. Everything you do will be to improve the lives of our users.


Possible daily tasks:
• Work with peers across disciplines to develop and pursue effective solutions for design problems. You will typically be paired with peer UX designers and counterparts in Business and Engineering.
• Proactively communicate with others, and seek out feedback appropriately.
• Communicate and validate your work through static and motion comps, or as interactive prototypes; you make to think and understand which fidelity is appropriate given any context.
• Participate in the design, observation, and analysis of user research.
• Work closely with engineers to ensure the design is implemented efficiently and to the highest degree of craftsmanship, and then continue to iterate in code to refine the design and respond to user feedback
• Participate in and contribute to our culture.
• Besides product design, you may be responsible for Identity, Branding, and Marketing projects.

Requirements:
• A current online portfolio. Please provide a link in your application.
• At least 4 years experience designing and shipping software.
• Fluency with designing for multiple device screens.
