Ellen Thompson Pluralsight

Video

Ever worked on a product where the requirements were dictated to you by stakeholders? Not at Pluralsight. We believe in Human Centered Design, autonomous teams, and the customer breaking the tie. Which means, you will be working on a cross-functional team with a Product Manager and a dev team who all share the same focus; learning from our customers and using that knowledge to decide what problems to solve and how to solve them. This is why we look for practitioners who are experienced, good at understanding people, and are driven by the love of what they do.

The Opportunity

Our adaptive skills experience is the best way for people to discover and learn what’s most important to enable them to get back to their next project or land a new role. The experience leverages AI to assess and guide you to what you need to know next and how to best get there. The team is responsible for the discovery and delivery of how learners will improve their skill. We are looking for an experienced, results-oriented product designer to join our team in Boston to design a best-in-class, personalized learning experience.

You will develop a nuanced and deep understanding of learning theory, designing with data, UI design and user behavior throughout the platform. You will implement a process to learn from our users and define the information architecture, interaction design, and visual design of the skills experience.

 Who you are:

  • You are focused on making progress every day

  • You ask detailed and specific questions, understand nuance, and challenge conventional wisdom

  • You are both a micro and a macro thinker - you understand the details and why they’re important and can zoom out and see the bigger picture and how the dots connect

  • You understand that what people say they want and what they actually want may differ

  • You are open to the best solution, regardless of its source

What you’ll own:

  • Planning,conducting and synthesizing user research along with the product manager

  • Collaborate with team to determine appropriate solution based on research

  • Creating concepts, wireframes, UI and visual design prototypes for testing, experimentation and development

  • Defining the information architecture, the interactions, and the visual design

  • Designing a data-driven, scalable learning experience that can change as quickly as tech does

Experience you’ll need:

  • 5+ plus years of product design and for digital products

  • A strong understanding of user research and human-centered design

  • An analytical approach to testing new features

  • Strong communication skills. Demonstrated ability to speak on a technical level and communicate clearly with developers and engineers

  • Strong interest in the learning, and in improving how consumers consume and interact with content

  • Strong interest in data science and machine learning products

Why We Work Here

Ellen Thompson Pluralsight
Ellen Thompson
Special Projects Leader

My 2.3 years of being a part of Pluralsight has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me both personally and professionally. I've been able to work with THE brightest and kindest people, all of whom are united together to change the world for the better. Pair this with the incredible benefits packages, extraordinary leadership team, and steady astronomical success? If you had asked me if it was possible to find a company like this ~2 years ago, I would've said no.

Shayna Cummings
Software Engineer

Shayna is passionate about advancing educational opportunities for everyone. She serves as a Director for Women Who Code in Boston, a teaching assistant for Girl Develop It and an instructor at General Assembly.

“Greater access to technical education is not only essential for empowering learners, but integral to helping our industry grow and bring in the diversity needed for businesses to evolve. Women and people from underrepresented backgrounds in tech need to be supported and empowered to grow in their roles.

Tech is changing (and has already changed) everything about our lives, and the more people involved in the creation and decision making, the better."

Isaac
Senior Content Technologist

Isaac is an author, speaker, technologist and STEM education advocate, and currently leading the Pluralsight Skills Strategy team. He is active in STEM/STEAM initiatives, and is focused on improving lives through education.

"Pluralsight’s mission is my mission. I had an experience where I realized I wanted to do something about STEM education. Not just worry about it, not complain
that, ‘someone ought to do something,’ but to actually find a career path that will allow me to make a difference. I found Pluralsight, and the rest is history.

Doing things for myself makes me happy; doing things for others makes me joyful."

Maureen Botoman
Engineering Manager

A self-taught programmer, Maureen is a strong advocate for junior devs. She was pivotal in starting Pluralsight’s summer internship program, now in its second year, and is a teaching assistant for the organization Girl Develop It.

“The commitment to being a steward of our community, both in Utah and globally, is one of my favorite things about Pluralsight. We are all so fortunate to have the opportunities that we have, and as a company, we need to come together to help other people receive the same opportunities. We empower people from all walks of life to obtain the tools and skills needed to change the world. Creating pathways for success for people to skill up and find meaningful work, whether or not they grew up with financial means, is one of the most rewarding things I have ever worked on.”

Curtin
Lead Analytics Engineer - Experienc

Curtis is a data visualization expert and Tableau Ambassador, and holds the title of 2016 Tableau Iron Viz champion.

“It’s hard for me to envision a future where my children don’t have the fundamental need for being well-versed in technology. Pluralsight is working on making that a reality in our schools. Our commitment to uplifting the lives of youth is one of the biggest reasons I came to work here.

My favorite opportunity that has stemmed from my Tableau Ambassador status is being able to teach data visualization in the MSIS program at the University of Utah. It’s really cool to be able to promote online technology education by day, and contribute in the classroom environment by night!”

Saswati Samantaray
Data Science Analyst

At the age of 25, Saswati moved from India to Utah to pursue a master’s degree in information systems.

“Coming from a culturally diverse and vibrant country like India, I have witnessed people who have access to the highest level of education, and also people with strong potential who have no access. Working for Pluralsight gives me immense pleasure because of the hope that we will be able to make a positive impact and elevate the lives of bright young people.

At Pluralsight we are a community of lifelong learners—we adapt to change and move forward. There is no greater privilege than doing the work that you actually love, and contributing to build a brighter future for society.”
