LearnUpon is looking for a Senior UI Designer to join our team in Belgrade or Ireland. We allow our employees to choose where they want to work*. You’ll have the option to work remotely, in the office, or a mixture of both that you have the flexibility to decide on.
LearnUpon LMS helps organizations train their employees, partners, and customers. Businesses can manage, track, and achieve their unique learning goals — all through a single, powerful solution.
With offices in Dublin (our HQ), Philadelphia, Belgrade, and Sydney, we are a team that puts our customers' experience at the heart of everything we do. We're always striving for the best solution (not the easy one), and we go the extra mile to deliver work we're proud of.
Our offices are open, collaborative environments where our team and individual accomplishments are celebrated and encouraged. Join LearnUpon, where we work together as a friendly, supportive team who, most importantly, like to have fun.
The LearnUpon Brand is a critical part of our company, and layering it into our products is an important job.
Our platform allows our customers to build their own branded experience, and as such our LearnUpon personality must be flexible enough to blend into the background and get out of our users' way, while also being supportive and practical.
Our design system provides the building block components that keep our products consistent, beautiful, usable, and accessible. Our design system ensures LearnUpon feels like LearnUpon—and that means our design system should be infused with our brand’s qualities and sensibilities. This role will connect the brand and product and report to our Director of Product Design.
