Designlab is looking for stellar Product Designers and hiring managers to join our platform as UX Academy mentors and Career Coaches for the next generation of creative talent.

// ABOUT DESIGNLAB //

We’re a platform for mentor-led, online design education with a focus on quality and outcomes. We offer a range of courses that facilitate design and creative thinking skills. Each of these courses teaches design through hands-on projects and 1:1 mentoring. Our mentors, our team and our students are all fully remote and we have built a thriving online design community.

// ABOUT THE ROLE//

We have over 400+ amazing designers from around the world mentoring on Designlab and are looking to grow this team. If you have a passion for design and get inspired by the thought of building the next generation of world-class designers, then this opportunity could be for you.

As a Designlab mentor, you will work with amazing students from around the world; connect to other top designers; and earn money while giving back to the design community. If your application is successful, you will be paired with students whose availability matches yours and you will mentor them through the duration of their course.

Designlab mentorship is part-time and flexible – you choose how many students you can take on per month, and in which courses, at the times that suit you. If you’re ready for a higher commitment role, you can apply to mentor for our more rigorous, advanced courses like UX Academy and Career Services.

Once you have committed to a student, you will need to be available to mentor them on a weekly basis for the duration of their course.
