🙌 The role

Product at Learnerbly

At Learnerbly, our Product Teams are empowered to solve problems and create products our customers love.

Practically, that means Designers are working collaboratively with Product Managers and Engineers to own a problem and go through the end-to-end development cycle of discovery and delivery. Senior Execs or Product Managers do not tell Designers and Engineers what to build. Sorry, no Feature Teams here (not sorry!)

We have a small (but mighty💪) team and we are looking to rapidly scale up to meet the demands of our customers.

We are looking for a Head of Design to join us and spearhead design at Learnerbly. You will create, steer, and deliver on the design vision for the product. You will also oversee design across the company from Marketing to Operations to People. This is a great opportunity for someone who not only wants to grow as a creator but also gets exposure to all aspects of building a company.

What you'll be getting up to:

  • Build, develop, and lead the Design Team: from identifying talent and hiring through to day-to-day coaching.
  • Collaborate with Designers and the wider team to set and evolve the design vision for the product and the company.
  • Create the design principles, processes, and systems to realise the vision and set the bar for quality.
  • Be the voice of design insider and outside of the company, sharing its work, evangelising its success, articulating its vision. And sometimes this representation means encouraging others to rethink the status quo and design a better solution.

This role will be a great fit if:

  • You are an experienced Product Designer in digital products (service design is a major plus) who has directed Design Teams before or is looking for that next level up.
  • You love working cross-functionally in a multi-disciplinary Product Team in a fast-paced startup environment.
  • You enjoy teaching design and building and coaching teams towards achieving a vision.
  • You are obsessed with solving hard problems with simple, minimal solutions.
  • You want to help us put a dent in the universe.

Please include a link or share your portfolio if you have one. It doesn't need to be up to date, we know at this level you might not have a typical portfolio. We'd just love to see any examples of previous work, your thought process and the results you did or didn't deliver.

Research shows that some people are less likely to apply for a role unless they are 100% qualified. Your experience, skills and passion will set you apart so tell us about your achievements, irrespective of whether they are personal or work-related, tell us about your journey, and about what you learnt.

So, if this role excites you, don't let our role description hold you back, get applying!

💛 Our Values

We look for people who share our values and can add to our culture. Values are shared beliefs that guide our decision-making, culture is how we function as a group and how we live our values as individuals.

  • Always Grow: We are curious and continuously take ourselves out of our comfort zone to spark new ways to develop ourselves, and each other. We humbly respond to feedback and proactively share advice with others to reveal new insights and accelerate growth. We proactively share what we learn and seek the contrary opinion in the room to diversify perspectives.
  • Include Intentionally: We go the extra mile to include diverse perspectives in everything we do, to create an environment where everyone can belong. We deliberately default to trust and embrace everyone, to create a safe space to share our thoughts and make mistakes to learn from. We bring our best authentic selves to the party, to live more fulfilling lives.
  • Create Impact: We think big and bold, and use our resourcefulness to bring solutions to the table and achieve Learnerbly goals. We experiment and deliver fast, and take pride in the quality of our work to drive the best outcome for our user. We set boundaries and prioritise ruthlessly to protect our time, focus, and wellbeing, so we can perform sustainably.
  • Win Together: We are accountable to ourselves and each other, we communicate clearly and simply to drive alignment and enable action. We make the time to support others and are able to ask for help when it's needed to move forward as a team. We celebrate each other's successes because when we win, we win together. And if we don't win, we learn together.

🌈 Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

At Learnerbly, we're committed to cultivating an environment that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. We are a global community and we believe our unique qualities should be celebrated as they are critical to our innovation. It's essential to us that you bring your authentic self to work every single day, no matter your age, ethnicity, religion, citizenship, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, caring responsibilities, neurodiversity, or otherwise. Inclusion isn't just an initiative at Learnerbly. We strive to embed it not just into our values but throughout our entire culture.
