Courses on Maven have community at their core, focus on active learning, and are available anywhere in the world. We're the leading marketplace for cohort-based courses, but are still early enough for you to make a big impact.

Our team has raised $25 million from incredible investors including Andreessen Horowitz, First Round, Naval, and more. We've launched hundreds of successful courses and helped instructors of all backgrounds make a living teaching the things they know best.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with product managers and engineers to understand user needs and define product requirements
  • Influence the shape of the product with research and data while executing designs using wireframes, user journeys, cross-platform interactive prototypes, and high-fidelity visual designs
  • Conduct customer research and usability testing to validate design concepts and gather feedback
