Spotlight on a HQ vacancy | Moodle UX Lead – worldwide search!

February 12, 2020 By Moodle

With today’s ever-evolving technological environment, UX design is becoming increasingly important. It is the advocate for the end user, seeking to understand the user goals, needs, and pain points; and how all of this fits in with the overall product vision.

You might be reading this because you love making the user experience the best it can be, perhaps you might want to understand more about what UX is or you might be wondering what a UX role at Moodle is all about!

Moodle is the most-used Learning Management System in the world, with hundreds of millions of users around the world.

Shifting our focus on making the user experience even better is at the heart of everything we are now doing with our products, and a top priority in our upcoming releases. Finding the right passionate, user-driven UX professional to help us achieve these organisational goals, is crucial.

Exciting Moodle HQ Vacancy
