We’re growing the product and software development team at Edrolo. It’s a rare opportunity to join a stable, skilled, and productive team at a company that’s doing something important — improving the lives of secondary students and teachers.
We’re searching for a designer that has experience working within software teams to build web products.
We create learning resources that are used in Australian high schools. Our latest products are textbooks (yes, actual physical textbooks) that are tightly coupled with our online resources (video lessons, interactive questions and answers, etc.).
In our seven-year journey we’ve built a customer base of over 800 schools, hired dozens of passionate educators and technologists, and raised money from Australia’s top venture capital firms. Hundreds of thousands of Australian students have viewed over 180 million Edrolo videos, and responded to over 72 million Edrolo practice questions.
Our headquarters, and about 100 staff, are based in Fitzroy, right between Smith and Brunswick streets.
Our technical and product design team consists of 5 people at the moment, and is small compared to the rest of the organisation (but is growing). This is made possible because our team is very autonomous and in-control of how we build things. Currently, our team lead balances a range of responsibilities, including product design, and the goal here is to enable a designer to give 100% of their time (at work) to product design at Edrolo.
Our product and our process
Our main focus for 2020 will be around the design, prototyping, and development of a next generation digital textbook for release in 2021.
Outside of that, you’ll be working with another designer, and a team of engineers, to realise our product roadmap as we improve and build new solutions for a range of stakeholders: students, teachers, school administrators, and internal teams (content production, support, sales, etc). A key part of the role will be staying ahead of development and providing the visual designs and solutions our engineers need to deliver value to customers. Part of this will be talking to customers and internal experts to get the information you need to solve each problem well. You’ll be in a position to inform and influence the design process and see your designs come to life, and go to customers quickly – your engineering team is very effective, and moves quickly and safely.
