Lead UX Designer

| El Segundo
Who we are:
GoGuardian is transforming education.
We dream of a world in which students can leverage the power of the internet and their own curiosity while staying focused and safe from harmful content on their school-issued devices.
We're building applications to do just that. Our products allow school administrators to create freedom within boundaries by setting rules around access, teachers to guide students through online content and collaboration, and school counselors to find and help students in need. But that's just the beginning, we need you to help us with what's next.
The GoGuardian UX Team is a close-knit group of thinkers and tinkerers who believe the best products are made with curiosity, optimism, and deep enthusiasm to craft products that make people’s lives better.
Who you are:
You are an experienced Senior UX Designer who balances your day-to-day design work with broader strategic planning, in partnership with Research, Engineering, and Product Management, to produce engaging, consistent, and innovative experiences for GoGuardian products.

What you'll do:

  • Design experiences that directly connect to product requirements, specific use cases and user goals.
  • Produce design deliverables for each step of the product development process from design exploration to user research examples, to final UI design, including task outlines, workflow diagrams, wireframes, interaction mockups, and high-fidelity visuals.
  • Represent the UX voice and be 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.
  • Work with developers to provide guidance as they build out the UI.

What you'll need:

  • 4+ years creating product experiences for web-based applications and services.
  • Portfolio of UX examples demonstrating design vision and real-world solutions.
  • Fluency with design tools for exploring, prototyping, testing, and producing user experiences.
  • The ability to develop design solutions from a variety of data and information sources.
  • Collaborative communication skills and a proven capacity to prioritize and defend design decisions; strong interpersonal skills and strong opinions that are loosely held.
  • 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 have interest or experience in education and a desire to see technology transform learning.
  • You’ve conducted user testing and research.
  • You’ve done prototyping using a code framework or a javascript tool such as Framer.

An Insider's view of GoGuardian

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

What's something quirky about your company?

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.
