It is now one of the largest online learning platforms in the world, with 82 million registered learners as of March 31, 2021. Coursera partners with over 200 leading university and industry partners to offer a broad catalog of content and credentials, including Guided Projects, courses, Specializations, certificates, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

The Product Design team is responsible for creating core learning experiences for our consumer, enterprise and university partner customers. The Growth & Consumer (monetization) product design team focuses on creating value for our diverse customer base across a global ecosystem. We create experiences to acquire new customers, meet the customers where they are in their career path and learning curve. Our team helps discover Coursera’s various learning offerings, activate, retain customers and define the strategies for growth and revenue models. We work closely with Product, Engineering, Research, Data, Consumer Marketing, Brand & Creative. We are focused on product-led Growth (different from designing for growth marketing). Experimentation and working across a portfolio of big bets and optimizations is core to our approach in creating sustainable, scalable growth models across our various target audiences. 

We are looking for a Senior Product Designer with a strong experience in Visual/UI skillset to solve for international business growth and customer delight. This is a full-time position based out of Toronto, Canada and we are open to working remotely within a reasonable time zone difference.
