CommonLit is a nonprofit EdTech startup dedicated to providing high-quality literacy instruction to low-income students and students of color to prepare them for success in college and careers. We operate a free online reading and writing program, www.commonlit.org, that is used by 7 million teachers and students monthly. We are a team of passionate professionals — many of whom are former teachers — that has grown very quickly in the past five years, especially since the need for distance learning resources has grown due to the pandemic.
As a UX/UI Designer at CommonLit, you’ll work with our Chief Product Officer and product team to design user interfaces and experiences for millions of students and their teachers as part of our digitally-delivered literacy curriculum. You’ll work closely with many teams at CommonLit (Product, Engineering, Curriculum, Data, Partnerships, and Coaching) to identify user needs and customer priorities, develop and test prototypes, write product requirements and design mockups, support engineers throughout development, and track and continually improve product usability.
CommonLit’s product roadmap is driven by user interviews, data, feedback from teachers through our User Support team, and partnerships with schools and districts across the country. We work in small iterations and deploy several times a day. We’re building an application that’s used by students and teachers across a broad range of technology and connectivity access, and we take accessibility seriously.
The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is committed to our mission and excited to work for a fast-paced nonprofit startup.
