Person with graphic design or UX/UI knowledge for building tutoring platform for Colombian youth

What do we do?

Our social program offers free online English tutoring to young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who live in remote locations in Colombia. These young people have been affected by the pandemic, but we have realized that once they begin to learn English, their lives change radically; They have access to more online resources, and they strongly contribute to improving the conditions of their communities.

Currently, there are 70+ students enrolled throughout Colombia and 30+ English volunteer tutors helping us from different parts of the world.

Who are we looking for?

We are currently working on a mobile online platform that helps students in their English learning process by showing them different grammar lessons, scheduling practice sessions with their tutors, connecting with fellow students, among others. This platform is currently being developed on Bubble, a no-code tool, where programming of functions is done visually. We want to have a functional prototype first that we can try with students and tutors, before migrating to more advanced technologies.

We are looking for people with graphic design or UX/UI knowledge who could help us make this mobile platform look better. We believe in the importance of design, and that's why we need you in our team.

What skills do you need?

Any graphic design or UX/UI knowledge is desirable. Also, if you've worked with Bubble in the past, that'd be great, although it is not a requisite in any way.

What to expect?

Expect to learn about the process of creating online tools; translating user requirements (our students and tutors) into functionalities that will help them in their daily lives. We use a light approach of SCRUM as our working methodology, so expect to learn about it as well. This opportunity will help you practice and learn how to improve user experience on a mobile platform.

Weekly dedication?

This will totally depend on you and how many and what functions you want to take on. However, expect to spend at least 2 hours a week on this opportunity.

Economic compensation?

Unfortunately not. All team members help voluntarily. However, we can provide you with any certificates or references that you may need in the future about this experience.

Next step?
