Hi Potential Co-worker.
My name is Jason. I'm the CEO of GrantMe.
As the Head of Product Design, you will be responsible for spearheading the vision, design, and development of our scholarship matching app and program.
We're unlocking human potential through an empowered education. And what does that mean? It means that we help deserving students win scholarships to go to their dream school. And it means that they get to fully express their potential as a human - they're not stuck making "practical" choices because they think that can't afford to pursue their passions.
You need to have empathy for the student. You need to have ideas on how to make things cool. You need to be able to communicate your vision to a developer.
This whole UI/UX thing is a new and emerging field. So while experience is an asset, what we're really looking for is hunger, drive, and grit. Can you get excited about something and follow through to its fulfillment? Do you like growing as a person? Will you learn whatever you have to in order to succeed? Are you obsessive about detail? What cool thing do you think you could build for students? Do you have good taste? I want to know!
To be clear, you would be part of a fast-growing, high paced startup. You'll be in a leadership role within the company. You will need a vision for the product and you will need to lead the team to execute on that vision.
