Here’s the deal:
Skillzilla is in search of a product designer who has a passionate drive to design inventive user experiences, create aesthetically, and breathe life into digital experiences and services through prototyping and experimentation. This person moulds simplicity out of complexity and finds fulfillment in making an impact on people's lives and their futures.

As a product designer at Skillzilla, you will wield an immense influence over every aspect of our products and services. You will use human-centered design as a means of innovating how people find work.

People should have a sense of purpose in their work, they should feel that they are working towards something greater for themselves. Your role is to design the experiences that lead people to their next step.

What does Skillzilla offer you?
Skillzilla is early stage, and some of our biggest challenges right now are design-oriented. Thus you will be instrumental to our success as a company, and to those that it serves. We are a small team, but relatively we have a lot of talent and resources at our disposal, and you will have the full weight of the team behind you. There is a real opportunity to do something big here, and when we succeed, you will reap the rewards that go with that. This is the most important position that we will hire for at this stage of the company; you will feel that when you work here.

About Skillzilla
Our goal is to get people jobs that they feel fulfilled doing. We actually started out trying to build an education platform, but quickly learned that there are problems in the way we hire that make advancing education very difficult. We now know that these problems don’t only harm one’s ability to advance their education, but also keeps employers from accessing a larger network of potential talent, which slows the advancement of society as a whole.

We are a team of people of unconventional backgrounds and our expertise ranges a wide variety of fields. We value creativity and the path less traveled. A team of well-informed optimists looking for the right person to help us advance to that next step.

Once here you will:
