Learning Designer (m/f/x)

Coleap is on a mission to make lifelong learning 10x more engaging, accessible and effective. We are building a platform to enable thousands of quality learning communities to emerge.


 Your mission at Coleap

Our ambition is huge and we are searching for equally ambitious people to help us build a generationally-significant company. As our first Learning Designer, you will be responsible for creating, planning and driving incredible outcomes by working directly with creators and learner communities  💫

🎨 What you will be doing

  • Enabling top-tier operators and influencers to transform their knowledge into inspiring, practical, and engaging learning paths. By modelling, teaching and supporting them in creating a learning community, you will play coach to them as they find their ‘teaching voice’. This requires taking both a 3,000 ft view of the overarching course strategy, as well as translating that into learner-facing curriculum & peer-learning activities
  • Designing each step of these learning paths with the goal to deliver a phenomenal learner experience that helps them make leaps in their careers. This is our North Star at Coleap: we regularly achieved 80+ NPS courses, and want to maintain an aspirational standard for all our learning communities
  • Working closely with Coleap’s Head of Education, Director of Learner Operations and Community Leads to implement a seamless journey for the learners
  • Collaborate with our product team to turn learnings and insights into features for Coleap’s peer-learning platform
  • Running creative experiments, setting up guides, and creating content to democratise what we know about building great learning communities
  • You’ll have opportunities to move up and across the organisation over time!

🔎 Who we are looking for

  • You have the ambition of building a generationally-defining venture for 100s of millions of users, joining as one of the first 20 team members
  • You have a passion and a driving “why” to make education more effective, engaging, and accessible
  • You bring 2+ years of working in instructional design or educational content creation in edtech, universities, or creative organisations. Familiarity with ADDIE, backward-design, Adobe Articulate 360 and other instructional design frameworks is a big plus!
  • You have the ability to work effectively with a range of stakeholders across product and operations in a remote team setup
  • You embrace the ambiguity characteristic of an early-stage startup as an opportunity to ask - “what else might be possible here?”
  • You have a keen eye for what will attract and engage learners across the lifecycle of a learning community, from the very time they see the landing page, to the testimonials they write for future cohort
  • This is key: we want to go beyond a creator-centered, “sage on the stage” model towards a true community and peer led model. You bring excitement to experiment with radical models of learning

💖 What is waiting for you

  • A meaningful mission, a global vision and the opportunity to help millions of people around the world build a fulfilling career. Coleap aims to redefine the way lifelong learning operates, and you'll have a chance to mould our trajectory
  • Ownership: This is day 1 on our 100-year mission. You'll get to define and drive some of Coleap's most strategic initiatives
  • Competitive salary & equity: we pride ourselves on ensuring that you have significant stakes in the company. Everyone in Coleap receives equity in the business. Expect a generous fixed & variable compensation package on top.
  • Remote-first culture: work flexibly from anywhere in a team that cares deeply
