Coursera was founded by two computer science professors at Stanford with a vision of providing life-transforming learning experiences to anyone, anywhere. It is the world’s largest online learning platform for higher education. 200 of the world’s top universities and industry educators partner with Coursera to offer courses, Specializations, and degrees that empower over 48 million learners around the world to achieve their career goals. Over 2,200 companies use the company’s enterprise platform Coursera for Business to transform their talent. Coursera is backed by leading venture capital firms such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, New Enterprise Associates, GSV Capital, International Finance Corporation, Laureate Education Inc., and Learn Capital. The Design & Research teams are part of the larger Product Organization and are responsible for gathering learner & partner insights and translating those into a seamless & empowering experience across the platform. These teams are broken down into three branches, Growth & Discovery, Learner Experience, & Enterprise/Partner Experience, similar to other teams within the Product & Engineering Organizations.  As our Head of Design & Research, you will lead a strong team of mission-driven designers and researchers in guiding prospective learners to their educational goals, educators to teaching tools, and enterprises to managing their employee experience. You will help mentor our product design team to envision, develop, and launch experiences that create frictionless discovery, personalized learning, and the first impression that all users, from core learners to university partners to enterprise companies, have with Coursera. You’ll have a strategic design hand in bringing new products to life, working every day with your partners in Product Management, Data and Engineering. From brand stories to personalized recommendations to data visualization to mobile, the user experiences you design are used by millions of thankful, motivated learners every day to improve their career growth and livelihoods around the world.
