Product UI/UX Designer - Lambda Labs Student Development Team

Remote
Learning – Lambda X
Full Time
Lambda School is a combination of a school and an investment fund. Lambda School's mission is to find untapped or underutilized talent, and to train that talent for the most in-demand jobs in the world. Lambda School is pioneering a new model of higher education in which the school invests in the students, instead of the other way around.

Lambda has just successfully completed its Series B fund raising round with premier tier venture investors. We are operating in 40+ states across the US today and eyeing international expansion opportunities. 

As a product designer in Labs you will be working with a product manager, student developers and internal stakeholders to craft a product vision that will be built by new junior developers fresh out of the Lambda curriculum and into an apprenticeship environment.

You’ll be working with 2 main objectives:

1. Deliver meaningful product concepts to students that allow them to create impressive capstone projects.
2. Help and support product leadership craft a product vision for the Lambda product suite.

The most revolutionary part of the process will be the sheer volume of engineers that will be building the product concepts you craft alongside a product partner and product leadership.

We need the right mix of leadership and vision to craft not just the current projects, but to scale the product concepts for thousands of developers. There will be a significant amount of products needing to be scoped and delivered.
You must be self-starting with the ability to effectively work autonomously with little oversight.
