As a UX/UI designer, you’ll partner with developers and product owners to define engaging, consistent, and innovative experiences for GoGuardian products.
The GoGuardian UX Team is a close-knit group of thinkers and idealists who believe the best products are made through curiosity, optimism, and deep enthusiasm to create experiences that make people’s lives better. This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-paced, high-growth EdTech SaaS company.

What you'll do:

  • Produce design deliverables for each step of the product development process from design exploration to user research examples and final UI design, including task outlines, workflow diagrams, wireframes, interaction mockups, and high-fidelity visuals.
  • Represent the UX voice and act as an advocate for the user in all conversations when collaborating closely with developers and product owners.
  • Maintain, innovate upon, and surpass industry best practices for UX and product design methods, trends, and processes.
  • Provide guidance to our developers as they build out UI.

What you'll need:

  • 2+ years creating product experiences for browser-based applications and services.
  • Outstanding portfolio of innovative UX examples demonstrating process, design vision and real-world solutions.
  • Fluency with appropriate design tools for exploring, prototyping, testing, and delivering professional-level UX work.
  • Exceptional attention to detail and the ability to identify design solutions from a variety of data and information sources.
  • Strong communication skills and a proven capacity to prioritize and defend design decisions.
  • Familiarity with web development solutions such as HTML5/CSS3/Javascript.
  • Enthusiasm to share, innovate, and create world-class design with a like-minded team of fellow creatives.

It's a bonus if:

  • You're interested in education and possess a desire to see technology transform learning.
  • Experience with conducting user testing and research.
  • Experience with interaction prototyping using a code framework or a Javascript tool such as Framer.

Insider's spotlight

What are some social events your company does?

We love hanging out together here at GoGuardian and have a different social event almost every week! We’re not short on company events like Oscar viewing parties, basketball or crafts club and Harry Potter birthday celebrations. We also love smaller team events and have done everything from ice skating to biking on the beach to Korean BBQ /karaoke!

Tamar

Business Analyst

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our vision brings tall challenges; one of which is finding ways to sift through nearly insurmountable amounts of data, finding the important nuggets of information, then surfacing it to the right people. By using a combination of machine learning and cutting-edge data science (really), we're building better products for our users.

Zach

Senior Designer

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of GoGuardian's core values is to experiment and learn. I think the engineering team embodies this well, and one skill I have learned is to be open to all the learning opportunities available and not be afraid to try new things.

Melinda

Software Engineer

Being a company geared towards improving education it’s only fitting that we embrace the theme of the most magical school on the face of the Earth. Of course I’m referring to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There’s nothing like wrapping up a game of Fifa in the Forbidden Forest and then jumping into a meeting in the Ministry of Magic.
