UX Designer EediLondon, England, GB
We have a groundbreaking vision for our product and exciting challenges to solve.
Eedi provides tailored learning, delivered by real tutors, for less than £2 per week.
We have retained qualified tutors where they add value and blended them with propriety technology and content seamlessly to automate the areas of tuition where time and money are wasted.
These efficiencies mean we can deliver on our mission to help every child build the skills and confidence they need to thrive in a rapidly changing world, at an affordable price.
We’ve seen rapid growth of our school’s product during lockdown, with teachers in over 17,400 schools using Eedi’s free diagnostic questions & formative assessment quizzes and have been fortunate to be backed by the likes of LEGO Ventures, Dulwich College International, Emerge, Ascension and Founders Factory. Our culture is informal, hard-working and kind, we embrace trust and collective responsibility.
Like the children and teachers who use Eedi, we are always learning, we are committed to working with integrity, doing the right thing and building a company we are proud of.
What you'll be doing
This is a rare opportunity to join a startup solving a human problem at a pivotal moment. You’ll be a hands-on product designer working closely with the product manager, engineers and operations, you will help choose the most important business problems to solve and deliver value quickly to our customers.
The sorts of problems you can expect to take on:
- Help children feel the success of learning;
- Create motivating content and tools that can help children achieve their potential;
- Ensure our tutors can identify those who need help quickly and provide assistance.
This role brings together creativity, deep problem solving and collaboration.
- You’ll be comfortable in a role with unlimited opportunity, as well as endless minefields, shaping the role as we grow;
- You’ll be comfortable with – not just tolerant of – change and uncertainty;
- You’ll operate with transparency, explain your thought process and how you’re weighting each decision. You have to be able to sell your design vision to the entire company;
- You’ll think with scale in mind and won’t get caught up in checking the next task off the list, you’ll be putting systems in place that will scale as the team grows;
- You’ll be our only designer so you’ll need to be a jack of most trades, a little familiar with almost everything, but resourceful in finding the answer if you don’t;
- You’ll work quickly: as our only designer we expect you to be pedal to the metal for the first year or two. Process is important, but losing sight of good for perfect is not a privilege to a design team of one. Speed is not a dirty word.
Things to know
- We’d like to have the right person in place by the end of April.
- The salary range is £50-65K, depending on experience.
- This role should be of interest to mid-level designers wanting to test the breadth of their skills with a well-funded start-up with an established user base.
- You can do this role from anywhere in the UK. We are unlikely to hire someone living outside the UK.
What you'll need
- This is not a junior role, you will need 3+ years of UX experience in designing world-class consumer applications in a technology company or a reputable multidisciplinary design agency, over and above any other experience.
- Open-mindedness to non-traditional solutions is essential.
- Outstanding skills in Figma, Miro and other collaborative tools.
- Speed. You’ll need to quickly generate lo-fi wireframes for discussion alongside physical & digital prototypes for testing and hi-fidelity design for release, all the while optimising your work at every level.
- The ability to understand technical implications in your design decisions.
- The ability to take ownership of the design process and work as self-directed member of the product development team.
- Strong UX focus and understanding of human behaviour.
- Confidence in working with product growth experiments.
- Great communication skills: whether it’s talking through your work with the team or speaking with teachers, parents and children, you’ll need to be able to get across your point and empathise with those of others.
Nice to have's
- Any gamification experience would be hugely advantageous
- Experience working with parents and/or children is definitely beneficial
