Swing Education was founded by three high school friends: Mike, Asha and Oz. Years later, their paths crossed again when Mike enlisted Asha and Oz to help find solutions to problems faced by schools. They found that schools had a huge substitute teacher shortage, came up with a product that resonated, and has grown the company exponentially.
A year and a half later, Swing Education employs over 30 individuals, work with over 1,000 substitute teachers, and engage over 400 school partners. We're incredibly committed to our mission. We strive to create a diverse, inclusive workplace, and culture is our highest priority.
In EdTech, design isn't thought of as a competitive advantage. We believe in disrupting the design status quo as our competitive advantage. We strive to create a product that is intuitive, user-friendly, simple and beautiful - a product that's so awesome that subs and schools want to continue using it. So far, our school partners who start using us end up using us more. They don't churn. The #1 advantage of our system versus another system (in their eyes) is our ease-of-use/simplicity, which we strive to achieve with our visual, UI, and UX flows.
This Head of Product Design hire at Swing Education is a critical one for us. We're looking for the right designer who wants to disrupt the EdTech design status quo and deliver an amazing experience for our users.
