MyTutor is hiring a

Product Designer

London, United Kingdom

MyTutor is the UK’s leading online platform for one-to-one learning, and we're on a mission to empower every pupil with the expertise they need to reach their potential. We’re building a future where access to high quality learning is stress-free for those who can afford it, and funded for those who can't.

One-to-one tuition is one of the most powerful interventions to improve pupils’ grades, confidence and life chances. Yet it remains out of reach for many. Our handpicked network of tutors work online with pupils from all walks of life, and our tutors have given half a million lessons so far – raising results on average by one whole grade. We’re proud of the fact that over 550 schools have also chosen to work with us. And that we’ve earned a TrustPilot rating of 4.8/5.

We understand the hectic lives of families with teenagers, and our flexible lesson times mean parents can juggle schedules more easily. It's simple to find a tutor each child gets on with – and every lesson is tailored to their needs. And with online not only is it safe given the current environment, but families also have access to the best tutors no matter where they live or when they need help.


About the role

We’re looking for a Product Designer to join our growing product-engineering team. You'll be responsible for talking to our users, running workshops and creating prototypes to help discover the best solutions. Reporting into the Senior Product Designer, you’ll be working closely with Designers, Product Managers, Engineers and the wider business to help us grow and refine our existing digital product.


What you’ll be doing

User research
It’s important that we understand our users needs and frustrations before we make decisions about our product. You’ll help conduct user interviews, surveys and run experiments on the site.

Help the business
You’ll understand how your designs contribute to business metrics and long term goals.

Bring others into your process
You’ll draw on the experience of the wider team. You might run workshops, sketching sessions, or ask a team member for feedback on your work.

Explore different concepts
Even if they don’t work out, you'll love exploring new interaction patterns or design concepts and bringing them into your designs.

Designing Interfaces
You’ll take your concepts and ideas through to final polished designs in Figma or Sketch and work with our development team to bring them to life.

Requirements

This role is for you if...

You have a passion for UI/ UX
We want someone who loves applying their design process to digital products. If you love trying out new apps on your phone just because they’re nicely designed then we want to hear from you!

You have can take an idea from start to finish
We want someone who has some knowledge of the product design process. Whether it’s through side projects, coursework, or some real experience we want to see a demonstration of how you approach designing digital products.

You enjoy working collaboratively
You’ll spend a lot of your time working closely with a product owner and the rest of the MyTutor business to collaboratively solve problems.

You've already started your career

We're looking for someone who has at least 1-2 years experience working as part of a design team, either in house at a company or startup or at a design agency.

You’re really interested in people
We have lots of diverse user types that we need to design for (teenagers, parents and students, teachers, operations staff to name a few) all with their own frustrations, needs and characteristics. A large part of this role will be making sure you intimately understand what they are going through and creating designs using this knowledge.

You have attention to detail and a view of the big picture
You’ll need to understand how your designs fit within the wider customer journey, but also love diving into the details of micro interactions, writing copy and design details.
