Trala is a tech-powered online music school. Our mission is to make world- class music education accessible to every single person on Earth.
Right now, music education is so expensive that the joy of music is available only to the rich and urban. Imagine instead a world where all 4 billion people who will pick up an instrument in the next 30 years could get a world-class education. Imagine how much more music and joy there would be in the world. That is the future we’re obsessed with creating.
Our first product, Trala: Learn Violin, is a mobile application that teaches anyone how to play violin. We do this using movie-quality tutorial videos featuring diverse violinists, signal processing that listens to students play their real violins and gives instant feedback on every mistake, and a curriculum that prioritizes accessibility and diversity. This is crazy-hard and requires us to solve novel problems in signal processing, app design, user psychology, and education theory.
Over the last 3 years, we have organically grown Trala to 250,000 downloads, students in 100+ countries, and support from some of the most celebrated musicians in the world. Our students are ages 7 to 70 and live in rural Montana, Lebanon, tiny Pacific islands, Hong Kong, and our hometown of Chicago. They’re not businesses or governments, they’re people. They’ve dreamt of learning an instrument for years and we’re fulfilling those dreams.
It’s going to be a massive challenge. That’s where you come in.
We’re a fully remote team headquartered in Chicago. This is a fully remote position.
You will be the second designer on the team. You will own the visual design for everything user-facing at Trala, including our mobile apps, website, and marketing materials.
Ever look at a brand or a product and think, “If I were the designer this would be so much better”? In this role, you’ll have complete ownership over Trala’s visual designs.
Your mission will be to engage users with appealing user interfaces that are consistent with the Trala design style and branding. You will be involved in the entire product life cycle, working closely with our UX Designer, Product Manager, and CEO to identify, research and provide high-standard designs for a variety of projects. You will be the final design eye on anything that goes live to our students.
