Remote Lead Product Designer User Motivation

Brilliant makes learning STEM fun, through problem solving and interactive explorations – from foundational math and science to cutting-edge computer science and professional topics.
Brilliant helps over 9 million students, professionals, and lifelong learners around the world cultivate problem solving skills, build intuition, and master concepts rather than memorize them. To understand more about our approach, see our learning principles.

About the role
We’re seeking a seasoned product designer to lead our efforts in user motivation, drawing inspiration from the worlds of game mechanics and storytelling to help learners feel accomplished and inspired as they achieve their goals in STEM.
Product design at Brilliant currently works across five domains: growth, learning experience, user motivation, authoring, and interactives. You'll have opportunities to collaborate with teammates from each of those domains.

You’ll work with a diverse team of artists, animators and educators, and you’ll use data and user research to inform new ways to motivate users. Your work will help learners around the world understand topics from logic to vector calculus to neural networks in an inspiring and interactive way. The transition from passive to active learning online is still in its infancy: come build the future of interactive learning with us!
