About the role

We're looking to hire our first product designer (in-house UX/UI expert) at Arist!

If that's you, you'll get the chance to help define the future of how we deliver learning to employees worldwide.

Specifically, you’ll get to help define what the future of creating, delivering, and analyzing message-based learning looks like, and help solve some of the core challenges that learning teams at the world’s largest organizations face.

Put simply, your job is to make sure our powerful learning solution is designed to be used as effectively as possible.

A few things you'll spend your time working on:

  • Create the UX/UI designs and mockups for all new product development work

  • Audit the user flows between pages in our product and lead end-to-end redesign sprints to improve UX/UI

  • Taking our proven learning methodology and seamlessly embedding it into our product

  • Figure out ways to effectively showcase continuous learning outcomes in our Analytics Dashboard (something no learning solution has yet figured out, but we have a good shot at!)

  • Work closely with the product, learning, and customer team to launch features that are well designed to improve learning outcomes

Who are we looking for?

We're looking for a Product Designer who enjoys leading the entire, end-to-end design process, and who is especially an expert at UX. Our ideal designer is well-versed in the user-centered design process & uses it to solve complex problems and is eager to learn from others.

Ideally someone who has:

  • 5+ years of proven UX / UI Design experience designing responsive web applications

  • Mastery of Figma

  • Strong talent for creating simple designs (from both a UI and UX perspective) that solve user challenges in simple way

  • Ability to build and execute design research methodologies and user testing protocols in a rapid development environment

  • Experience plotting and mapping a user journey from product discovery through engagement

  • 2-3+ years in a startup environment

You'll do great in this role if you:

  • Keep things simple

  • Move fast and thoughtfully

  • Love to learn and grow continuously

  • Obsess over creating incredible user experiences that solve real problems

  • Are systems thinker who understands how each design choice influences the larger whole

  • Care deeply about helping people learn (like, actually learn!)

Why you should join Arist

We're a group of kind, intelligent, and creative people - all incredibly devoted to creating and enabling incredible learning experiences that truly help make people more capable.

Our vision is to become the most effective way people learn at scale by delivering the right learning, at the right time, at the right place.

Come help us revolutionize the way people learn!
