Job Description

We built the simplest and most reliable edtech solution in the world, but thatโ€™s only the beginning. Our near future is full of ambitious new goals, features, and products that will enable us to further improve how we provide service to our users and accelerate our already fast growth.

We prioritize fast iteration without compromising quality, while maintaining an attention to detail that creates the kind of delightful interactions weโ€™re known for. Weโ€™re looking for a curious, ambitious, and empathetic Senior UX Designer to help us design the future of our products.

Why is this role special? 

  1. Design products that will advance education. Schools and districts around the world depend on Screencastify to digitize their curriculum and communication. The need for and benefit of video-based learning has never been more clear than it is now.
  2. Have a massive impact. As part of a small Product Design team you will be instrumental in the design of every feature and product that we release โ€” every one of which will be seen and used by millions of people.
  3. Work with an extremely talented team. We have teammates from diverse experiences that make working at Screencastify fun and career advancing.
  4. Work for our users. Above all else, you will be an advocate for our massive user base and will get to know their voices and stories better than most people in the company.
  5. Join us at a magical time. Weโ€™re bootstrapped, profitable, and support tens of millions of users, which gives us a huge green field to work with. Youโ€™ll join at the perfect time to shape how we grow from here.

What youโ€™ll do: 

  • Work closely with our Product team to research and solve user problems that help teacherโ€™s save time and improve student learning outcomes.
  • Coordinate with Product Managers to ensure a successful transfer of mockups/design criteria to engineers.
  • QA UI of all product updates before release to ensure alignment with designs and style guide.
  • Prepare and present designs to internal teams and key stakeholders.
  • Conduct user interviews and observations to improve product functionality.
  • Collaborate with our UX Designer to push boundaries in creating compelling and thoughtful design solutions.
  • Own and advocate for high quality UI, ensuring all designs uphold cross-product consistency and deliver the best possible experience to our users.
  • Develop Style Guides, interaction patterns, and various design artifacts to refine our product.


Youโ€™re perfect for this role if you:

  • Have 5+ years designing high quality user interfaces for SaaS based web and mobile applications and have a design portfolio to show for it.
  • Youโ€™re in the EdTech industry.
  • Are extremely detail oriented and organized.
  • Have strong visual design and branding skills.
  • Are excited about data-driven design and prioritizing user needs.
  • Are passionate about creating awesome user experiences that push beyond function.
  • Have experience with Figma and Whimsical.
  • Can internalize a design aesthetic and make it your own.
  • Care about the business implications of anything you design. Youโ€™re not just going after cool stuff โ€” you understand the balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
  • Love the challenges, hours, and ups-and-downs of startup life.
  • Are flexible, dedicated, and curious.

This is a Chicago-based hybrid position with 3 days a week in the office.
