MyTutor is the UK’s leading online platform for one-to-one learning, and we're on a mission to improve the educational outcomes of thousands of young people. We’re building a future where access to high-quality learning is stress-free for those who can afford it, and funded for those who can't.

One-to-one tuition is one of the most powerful ways to improve pupils’ grades, confidence and life chances. Yet it remains out of reach for many. Our handpicked community of tutors work online with students from all walks of life, raising results on average by one whole grade. Since the Covid-19 and all the disruption to education, we've worked with the government to provide safe and reliable tuition to more students than ever. We're proud to have worked with over 650 schools across the UK, and our tutors have given over a million lessons.

Since the pandemic, we've scaled up and kept a working environment that encourages collaboration and support. We always prioritise our team's development and wellbeing, remotely right now, and in an office again in the future. You can find your zen in team Yoga on Mondays, sweat it out at our Product Manager Jess's Bootcamp on Fridays (not for the faint-hearted) or get creative at Drink & Draw from our Content Manager Mariota. We have regular company socials and there are chances every week to sit down with someone for a cuppa and a chat. When it's legal, we're excited to get back to in-person socials too (landscape drawing in the park, anyone?).

About the role:

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our growing product-engineering team. You'll be responsible for talking to our users, running workshops and creating prototypes to help discover the best solutions. You’ll be working closely with Designers, Product Managers, Engineers and the wider business to help us grow and refine our existing digital product.

What you can expect:

  • It’s important that we understand our users needs and frustrations before we make decisions about our product. You’ll help conduct user interviews, surveys and run experiments on the site.
  • You’ll understand how your designs contribute to business metrics and long term goals.
  • You’ll draw on the experience of the wider team. You might run workshops, sketching sessions, or ask a team member for feedback on your work.
  • Even if they don’t work out, you'll love exploring new interaction patterns or design concepts and bringing them into your designs.
  • You’ll take your concepts and ideas through to final polished designs in Figma or Sketch and work with our development team to bring them to life.

The type of person we would love to meet:

  • We want someone who loves applying their design process to digital products. If you love trying out new apps on your phone just because they’re nicely designed then we want to hear from you!
  • We’re looking for someone who has some knowledge of the product design process. Whether it’s through side projects, coursework, or some real experience we want to see a demonstration of how you approach designing digital products.
  • You’ll spend a lot of your time working closely with a product owner and the rest of the MyTutor business to collaboratively solve problems.
  • We're looking for someone who has at least 2-3 years experience working as part of a design team, either in house at a company, start-up or at a design agency.
  • We have lots of diverse user types that we need to design for (teenagers, parents and students, teachers and operations staff to name a few) all with their own frustrations, needs and characteristics. A large part of this role will be making sure you intimately understand what they are going through and creating designs using this knowledge.
  • You’ll need to understand how your designs fit within the wider customer journey, but also love diving into the details of micro interactions, writing copy and design details.

Benefits:

  • Investment in your learning with a personal L&D budget of up to £350
  • Your own laptop (Mac or Windows) and hardware (we can help you set up a home office if WFH)
  • Workplace pension
  • Share option package
  • Private Healthcare option through BUPA
  • Enhanced parent policies
  • Cycle, tech and gym schemes
  • Mentor/mentee scheme
  • Regular team events & socials (we've just had a remote Sofar Sounds gig and wine tasting!)
  • 25 days holiday (plus public holidays)
  • A culture that champions wellbeing with monthly workshops and 1:1 coaching

 

The salary range for this role is between £40,000 to £60,000 pa.

MyTutor is committed to creating an inclusive workplace and has set up our own EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) committee who host regular events to make sure we live up to those values. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer, and all applicants will be considered.
