Product / UX designer
at Obby in London
(₤40000 - ₤60000 per year)
Obby – https://obby.co.uk – is London’s leading education marketplace. We help independent teachers, makers and artists earn a living doing what they love – teaching, whilst providing Londoners with the best educational classes, courses and workshops.
From painting to pottery and soon to include language lessons, music classes and more, Obby’s mission is to provide incredible learning experiences, help people get offline and learn something you fall in love with.
What we are looking for
We’re looking for an experienced UX / UI Designer who can take over our design team and help us build a product that our users love. Our goal is to put design at the focus of our product & brand and we are looking for the right person to take on that challenge.
How we work
The engineering team is led by Pedro. Pedro loves building things from scratch (especially electric Skateboards and lately, building a fully electric bus), cryptocurrencies, and tweeting about Elon Musk.
The product team is led by our co-founder Max, who loves Bayern Munich football club, Pirate Metrics and listening to Pedro talk about Elon Musk.
We work remotely across a shared timezone and are focused on building new products from scratch and running a continuous growth process.
We are building a product-focused culture and despite working remotely, try to get together in Lisbon, or London, once a quarter to work together for a week (and also spend some time together listening to Pedro talk about Elon Musk – he really likes Elon).
You will be working directly with Pedro and Max, speaking to users, redesigning existing features, running quick iterative tests and building new products. Additionally, you will take lead on owning and updating the brand & messaging.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for someone with 2-3 years of experience in UX / UI design at a technology business. We focus on aptitude over skill – what we look for the most is that you are eager to learn and take on new challenges, and have a keen eye for beautiful products & brands.
Additionally, we are looking for team members who are excited about the Obby mission, providing independent teachers with a platform to share their skills and generate an income doing what they love.
