ClassDojo's goal is to accelerate humanity’s progress, by giving every child on Earth an education they love.

We started by building a network that connects teachers, children, and families. ClassDojo’s flagship app is the #1 communication app connecting K-8 teachers, children, and families, globally. They use it to share what’s happening throughout the day through photos, videos, messages, and activities. It is actively used at an unprecedented scale: in over 95% of US schools, reaching ~51 million children in ~180 countries, with a team of just ~200 people [1]). We are now beginning to use this network to give kids the best learning experiences in the world, far beyond those a standard school can provide.

We hire for talent density. Our team comprises the most talented, entrepreneurial, and innovative teammates from around the world, with experience in education and large scale consumer internet companies, including Instagram, Netflix, Dropbox, Stripe, Uber, Y Combinator, and more. We’re building a company where the most talented people want to work. We believe you’ll do the best work of your life here—and you’ll pioneer the future of education, too.

What you’ll do:

Iteratively develop our brand aesthetic across, all of our email campaigns, and our broader marketing work — including new product launches. As part of this, you’ll build out and lead a team over time, both by leading design work across some of our most important projects yourself as well as supporting and challenging your team to deliver incredible work.

We’re looking for an incredible creative leader to help us build the world’s leading brand on par with Apple, Airbnb, Nike, and Tesla built entirely around kids, families, and education.

You will be a match if:

  • You have 15+ years of design experience
  • You have 5+ years of team leadership and management experience
  • Deep experience in brand and marketing design
  • Comfort designing across touchpoints — from small emails as part of a larger campaign to expansive landing pages that live online to advertising campaigns.

You’re likely a great match if:

  • You’re a student of great design work as well as the tactics of framing and influence
  • You’re relentless in your focus on doing incredible work
  • You can break down why a design detail works and why that was the right approach
  • You can’t stop thinking about how to make that image or layout better (even at night)
  • Your leadership style is a combination of hands-on work and team leadership
