Head of Platform Design

The mission

MSB is a developer-first training platform where software engineers can train on real-world engineering challenges using real infrastructure. By replicating top engineering learning environments (Netflix, Google, Uber) we are rethinking dev training from the ground up.
Our mission is to democratize access to top engineering (work) experience by merging the worlds of Education & Work and address the global shortage of qualified software engineers.

The platform

We’re building an all-new learning medium. Books & documentation have evolved into video tutorials the past decade. We believe we’re at the cusp of a fundamentally new learning era that leverages the latest technologies which will finally narrow the gap between education & work. Developers used to learn by reading, then by watching and are now finally able to learn by doing. Because the platform we’re building is pushing the limits of what is technically possible - we are looking for exceptional people who’ve mastered their craft and love challenging the status quo.

The role

As Head of Platform Design you’ll run all design efforts hands-on. Even though we are a deeply technical company, design plays an extremely important role. With endless moving parts and rich visual dashboards we seek a Design Lead that can distill, clarify, prioritize & implement novel UX/UI/interaction assets. As an early-stage company we expect a diverse set of skills and a can-do mentality. You’ll be balancing the production of all design assets with the setup of design systems and together with the founding team lay the foundation for future growth.

You have a strong track record of work
Ability to translate technology to design
You love getting things through the finish line
International (cross-culture) experience a plus
You don't settle for B-level deliverables & hiring
You can easily oscillate between pixels & strategy
7 years of experience learning & crafting great work

What we offer

We are backed by top US & EU investors and continue to attract thousands of engineers to MSB. You will join an international team (including extremely talented engineers who can realize your design assets) and who take pride in building a meaningful product with a soul. We offer a top salary and options and will get you the tools you need so you can focus on building truly magical stuff.
