Job Description

Correlation One is seeking an experienced Lead Product Designer to join their team. This position is 100% remote, although the ideal candidate would be based in the New York area.  

OUR CLIENT  

 

Correlation One is an education technology company whose mission is to create equal access to the data-driven jobs of tomorrow. 

 

They have developed a new model for education that eliminates traditional barriers to opportunity. They run university-level programs that are 100% free for students, financed by enterprises that train or recruit program graduates. This model aligns incentives between the education provider, student, and employer, where everyone wins when the student gets hired.

 

Example programs include Data Science for All, a masters-level data science bootcamp for individuals from historically underrepresented groups, and Amazon Career Choice, an analytics training program for frontline warehouse workers.

 

Their model is not just more equitable, but it is also inherently more scalable than traditional education providers. Each program is taught by tier-1 university professors and teaching assistants, delivered virtually to cohort-based learning communities. They currently run programs for 5,000+ students each year in 10+ countries, and they plan to grow 5-10x in the next two years.

 

Their clients include over 50 blue-chip companies, such as Amazon, Citadel, Accenture, Target, EY, BlackRock, and Johnson & Johnson. 

 

These organizations work with Correlation One to train their employees, to recruit program graduates, and to proactively invest in talent from traditionally underrepresented communities.
