Lead Product Designer

| Remote
We set out on a mission in 2018 with one goal in mind: to expand perspectives through the wonder of learning. To accomplish this goal we knew that we had to make learning fun. From the start, we’ve known that the email inbox has the power to spark curiosity, and from that curiosity to inspire learning in an engaging, immersive way. We believe that learning is how we grow as individuals and more deeply connect to each other.
The Likemind team shares four core values, lived daily by each of us: radical connection, insatiable curiosity, intentional intrepidness and infectious optimism. Living these values, we are able to operate seamlessly as a distributed workforce, working collaboratively around the world. 
Joining Likemind is simple: just be curious. Go with our learners on a journey that blends education and fun, igniting an opportunity to learn a fact, discover a passion, and share a story. It’s our way of connecting a vast community and striving to make the world - both online and IRL - a brighter place. 
We are Likemind.
Join the wonder.

An Insider's view of Likemind

What’s the vibe like in the office?

That's the best part... we all work remote and have the autonomy to plug in from wherever we want. Sometimes you can find me on my couch and other times I escape to my favorite local coffee shop. All team members get a $150/month to go towards coffee shop beverages when we want a change of scenery. Love it!
