About the role

Tech has been a gamechanger for society over the past few decades but the profits have largely gone to a handful of people clustered around a few major cities in the US. This has left people with historically disadvantaged & non-traditional backgrounds at a massive loss as they continue to fall behind despite working 2x hard because the tech/software has ‘eaten their worlds’. What's more - there are tens of thousands of unfilled jobs that fast-growing tech companies are unable to fill because there is a serious lack of skill needed to perform those highly technical jobs.

At Career Karma, we aim to solve this problem by being the marketplace & the community for rapid reskilling needed to raise living standards in the US (short term) and the world (long term).

Career Karma is on a mission to get 1 billion people tech jobs they love! We recently raised $40M in Series B funding & are backed by industry leaders like YCombinator, Softbank, Initialized Capital, Reforge, among others. Today, we’ve already helped over 350k+ workers navigate their careers. We’re looking for a Senior product designer to work on deeply understanding our users and crafting our growing line of products.

Design at Career Karma
