remote Community and Partnerships Manager at Skillcrush

Skillcrush is looking for a junior designer to join our team as a Design & UX Teaching Assistant (TA).

As a Teaching Assistant, it’ll be your job to give students the crucial feedback they need to sharpen their design and user experience skills.

This job could be right for you if you’re a junior designer/UX designer with great communication skills who cares about making technology education more fun, accessible, and personal.

  • Strong understanding of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign—You can design business cards or website comps without breaking a sweat!

  • Ability to give constructive feedback and motivate students as they work on assignments
  • Top-notch communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Evening and weekend availability in U.S. time zone equivalents

Bonuses:

  • Experience working as a freelance designer
  • Experience doing UX research, conducting user tests, and iterating on feedback
  • Understanding of digital marketing best practices, including SEO
  • Web development skills, such as HTML & CSS, Git and GitHub, etc.
  • Experience teaching, preferably online or in technology
  • Experience working remotely

Responsibilities:

  • Answer student questions about UX and visual design in our Slack student community and via email
