Director of Product Design at MasterClass
San Francisco, CA, US

Who we are:

MasterClass is transforming online education by enabling anyone in the world to learn from the very best. We are deconstructing what makes an actor able to cry on demand, how an athlete defies gravity, and what it takes to write a bestseller. Our online learning content is available to students anywhere anytime, which supports our mission to democratize education.

We are a quickly growing VC-funded start-up based in San Francisco and have created online classes taught by famous masters—Serena Williams, James Patterson, Annie Leibovitz, Usher, Christina Aguilera and many more to come.

Since launching in 2015, we are growing our team. Apply now to find out more about what we are doing behind the scenes.
