UI/Visual Designer

| Hollywood

Location: Hollywood, CA

Reporting to: VP of Content

If you’ve ever taken an online course, you already know that 99% of them suck. The world has the ability to create incredible cinematic experiences, but the status quo for online education is having a dry, uninspiring instructor talk to the camera for hours on end. In an ice cream parlor of unlimited flavors, everyone else has opted for vanilla. We have our eye on the mint triple chocolate chip birthday cake cookie dough with strawberry whipped cream and banana nut sprinkles.

Jumpcut is a Y Combinator company, and went through the startup accelerator in summer 2016. We've raised around $2M to date in venture funding, and are currently profitable. We create cinematic online courses with some of the world’s biggest influencers. Our founding team has years of experience creating binge-worthy content -- and now we are on a mission to interrupt the online education industry by creating courses for the modern world that are as addictive as your favorite TV show.

For us, design is not a luxury -- it’s a necessity. Our mission to create the world’s best online courses is not just about course content and production quality. In order to truly set our students up for success, we believe we need to utilize design as a learning instrument to help our students learn. That’s where you come in.

 

Role Overview:

We’re looking for an innovative designer who isn’t afraid to take creative risks and has a thoughtful approach to UI. You’ll be responsible for interpreting all visual elements of the Jumpcut brand and integrating it into our marketing pages and learning platform. You’ll work with our Creative Head and our Product team to implement your designs and your goals will be twofold: how can you best improve our students’ learning experience, and how can you do so in a magnificently beautiful way?

 

Responsibilities:

  • Leading the implementation of our branding, including both our brand redesign and continual interpretation of the Jumpcut brand. This includes beautiful illustrations, typography choices, interpretations of the color palette, and designs with creative risks.
  • Improve conversion rates of final sales by 10% through improving design on opt-in pages, landing pages, home page, etc.
  • Create aesthetically beautiful assets for our platform, including: thumbnails, banners, product images, etc.
  • Improve our students learning experience by creating/iterating on features dedicated to student success (ex: bootcamp, video player page).
  • Collaborate with the product team to quickly create mockups for new features and make changes based on feedback.
  • Work closely with our front-end developers: This includes collaborating with, getting feedback from, and implementing changes based on technical-related feedback. For example: creating designs at varying screen sizes, as well of the limitations and common practices of web.
  • Work alongside our UX designer to visually implement and iterate on their user stories, wireframes, or flow charts.

 

Role Requirements:

  • 3+ years of design experience in a team working on consumer facing products
  • Fluent in Sketch (preferred), Photoshop, Figma, etc.
  • Able to produce work outside of own personal style and aesthetic
  • Accept feedback and improve quickly -- highly adaptable
  • Easily brainstorm and produce oodles of ideas
  • Impeccable communication skills

 

Additionally, you might be a good fit if…

  • You have experience designing learning platforms
  • You have experience managing junior designers + helping them grow into a senior role
  • You have experience growing a design team (hiring)
  • Your portfolio is filled with designs that we would love to have our name tied to

 

Benefits, Perks, and Compensation:

We’ve got some pretty sweet digs, catered meals, unlimited PTO, and a full suite of benefits. Check out jumpcut.com/about for more information and to meet the team!

Compensation is competitive, and dependent on experience: $90,000-130,000 annually.

An Insider's view of Jumpcut

How does your team reward individual success?

Whether reward comes through bonuses, trophies at our all hands meetings or just a simple “great job” on Slack, my success is viewed as Jumpcut’s success. That’s never been unclear at a company that values “Helping People Grow”. It’s hard not to be thankful and even harder to not give my very best.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Jumpcut, our mission is to help our students learn valuable skills. Education is a tricky area because everyone is so different in the way they learn and absorb information. Our biggest challenge is building a flexible online educational platform that works for every single kind of student out there, no matter your background or learning style.

Catherine

Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

I joined Jumpcut 10 mos. ago as a Customer Service intern - now I direct the entire CS team and am building our recruiting team, all while knowing that if I wanted to join a different department to learn new things, I'd be fully supported.

Point being: Jumpcut isn't kidding around when they say one of their core values is to "help people grow".

Terry

Customer Success Director

What are some things you learned at the company?

I originally was hired as a junior copywriter. I literally started out writing content emails. It's pretty crazy but over the course of 2 or 3 years, I ended up learning how to do product launches and learning how to put together marketing funnels that have made millions of dollars. It still sounds crazy to me.
