Coursera's Product Design team is responsible for creating Course Authoring, Administration & Learning experiences for our Consumer, Enterprise & University partners. The Component Design Team creates the components & design patterns that Designers use, when designing experiences for those users.
The way companies design & implement User Experiences is evolving & the Component Design Team is at the very center of that movement at Coursera. Working collaboratively with Coursera's Design & Engineering teams, the Component Design team analyzes Coursera's current product designs, identifies components & patterns used within & simplifies them - in order to reduce complexity & deliver best-of-breed components, patterns & documentation. Their work enables Designers & Engineers to design faster, better & more consistently across every Coursera user experience - with a clear focus on responsiveness & accessibility at every turn.
We are looking for a Designer with an analytical mind, a keen eye-for-detail & a maker's level of craft - with a pure desire to create the things that everyone else at Coursera uses to design & deliver world-class User Experiences for our users.
REQUIRED: Portfolio with examples of Component and/or Product Experience designs that illustrate the quality of your work, methodical nature (!) & attention-to-detail.
