Lead Creative UI/UX Designer

| Greater LA Area
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Reporting to: VP of Content
Many startups believe that amazing UI/UX is a “nice to have” -- for us, it’s a “need to have”. At first glance, our mission to create the world’s best online courses seems like it revolves around course content and production quality. But in reality, that’s just the beginning. In order to truly set our students up for success, we believe we need to utilize UI/UX as a huge role in our students’ learning process. That’s where you come in.
Jumpcut is a Y Combinator company, and went through the startup accelerator in summer 2016. We've raised around $2M to date in venture funding, and are currently profitable. We create cinematic online courses with some of the world’s biggest influencers. Our founding team has years of experience creating binge-worthy content -- and now we are on a mission to interrupt the online education industry by creating courses for the modern world that are as addictive as your favorite TV show.

An Insider's view of Jumpcut

How does your team reward individual success?

Whether reward comes through bonuses, trophies at our all hands meetings or just a simple “great job” on Slack, my success is viewed as Jumpcut’s success. That’s never been unclear at a company that values “Helping People Grow”. It’s hard not to be thankful and even harder to not give my very best.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Jumpcut, our mission is to help our students learn valuable skills. Education is a tricky area because everyone is so different in the way they learn and absorb information. Our biggest challenge is building a flexible online educational platform that works for every single kind of student out there, no matter your background or learning style.


Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Jumpcut 10 mos. ago as a Customer Service intern - now I direct the entire CS team and am building our recruiting team, all while knowing that if I wanted to join a different department to learn new things, I'd be fully supported.

Point being: Jumpcut isn't kidding around when they say one of their core values is to "help people grow".


Customer Success Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I originally was hired as a junior copywriter. I literally started out writing content emails. It's pretty crazy but over the course of 2 or 3 years, I ended up learning how to do product launches and learning how to put together marketing funnels that have made millions of dollars. It still sounds crazy to me.
