Mobile UX/UI Designer

About LalTal

LalTal is a peer-to-peer, audio-based learning app that maps your knowledge and guides you along a bespoke path of lifelong learning and growth, teaching you everything you need to know along the way. All of this occurs in an engaging, interactive flashcard game - think Duolingo meets Clubhouse meets Stack Exchange.

We are a venture-backed startup founded by John Cumbers, PhD, former NASA synthetic biologist and founder of SynBioBeta, and T.J. Kneale, former Navy fighter pilot and Head of Moonshot Launch at TelefĂłnica. Key investors include DCVC and Uprising as well as angel investors Uma Valeti (Memphis Meats), Neil Parikh (Casper), and Esther Dyson (EdVenture). Our advisors include Danny Hillis, George Church, Esther Wojcicki, Josh Kim (Notion), and Andy Bartholomew (AirBnB).

LalTal is a fully remote company. We have team members in Barcelona, Toronto, and across the US. Each year we choose an exciting location to meet up in person - our most recent was Barcelona.

As a Mobile UX/UI designer, you'll work directly with the CEO to visualize user experience and user interface solutions that capitalize on LalTal's unique, asynchronous audio interaction to make learning engaging and personal.

  • Clearly communicate intended designs and behaviors to the engineering team for implementation
  • Collaborate with engineering throughout the process to find solutions that balance engineering ease with ideal user experience

About you:

  • You have previous experience in mobile UX/UI design, preferably from beautiful and well known apps
  • You have experience working with agile methods
  • You enjoy bringing others' ideas to life
  • You're a craftsperson with strong skills and experience in Figma and design prototyping tools
  • You are fluent in English

Our Values

To know the kind of team you’ll be joining, we want to make sure you understand our core values:

Follow the Golden Rule

Treat others with respect. Do what's right, even when no one is watching. Do what you say you're going to do, but if you can't, admit it as soon as you know you can't. Be transparent, even about hard things.

Smash silos

We believe in a world of abundance, not scarcity. Don't horde. Share information and resources. We float or sink as a team.

Live a learning journey

Strive and grow. Fulfill your potential.

Serve, don't stalk

Respect customers' data and hold it in sacred trust. Our vow is to empower customers with their data. We use our customers' data to help them be better people.

Be curious, experiment, and learn

Don't be afraid of the unknown. Have a clear hypothesis. Test it. Know how to know when you're wrong.
