Job Description

We're Growing! Our student base is growing rapidly, and we are currently hiring for multiple positions across several departments! Our expansion stems from two key factors: our commitment to providing exceptional educational content to our students by scaling our team with passionate individuals and our pursuit of new opportunities to enhance our students' learning experiences by broadening our capabilities and expertise as an organization.

The Position
As a Senior UX Designer at Miaplaza, you will spearhead UX design efforts, mentor junior designers, and ensure that the company's websites provide intuitive and seamless user experiences, particularly for students. You will focus on understanding user needs, testing design hypotheses, and measuring the impact of UX on customer success. Your role will include creating high-quality design deliverables, collaborating with cross-functional teams, and optimizing UX processes to enhance team efficiency and effectiveness.

Although this is a fully remote position and you have the flexibility to work from anywhere, it's essential to have significant overlap with standard working hours in Europe, as most of our product team is based there. To ensure effective collaboration, you should be available to work between 11 AM EST (or earlier) and 1 PM EST several days out of the week. Outside of this core overlap period, you have complete flexibility in determining your work schedule.

  • Work closely with other designers, providing feedback and guidance to ensure consistency and cohesion across the product's user experience.
  • Contribute to the growth and development of the UX team by participating in design critiques, sharing knowledge and best practices, and helping to foster a culture of collaboration and innovation.
  • Effectively communicate design rationale and decisions to stakeholders, including product managers, engineers, and executives.
  • Contribute to the continuous improvement of the team's design processes and best practices, ensuring that all design work is efficient, grounded in user research, and is ultimately centered around creating value for customers.
