Synthesis is an online enrichment program that aims to cultivate a generation of supercollaborators: individuals with the capability to solve the most challenging problems of our civilization…together. We offer students ages 8-14 the regular opportunity to practice what schools prevent: making consequential decisions, growing through reflection and course corrections, collaborating intensely with peers from around the world, and connecting powerful concepts with real-life application. School is largely a static and single-player experience, while the world demands a dynamic and extensively team-based approach. Consequently, we create team thinking games that are original, unapologetically complex, and designed to surface many kinds of collaboration – only playable within Synthesis.
We are looking for an experienced UX/UI designer with the ability to bring this platform to its full potential and refine every aspect of the Synthesis experience. In this role, you will work within a cross-functional team to design the next phase of Synthesis and develop the information architecture, user experience, and interfaces that will set the standard of quality across every tool and touchpoint.
We are teaching the world’s most valuable skill: the ability to solve complex problems with a team. Our goal is to make an education experience so great that even billionaires couldn’t buy anything better for their kids, and then make that affordable for as many people as possible. Join us.
As a Senior UX/UI Designer working within the various Synthesis platform teams, you will:
