The World’s Leading Online Design School
A Culture of 100% Remote Work and 110% Excellence
The Interaction Design Foundation is the world’s most prestigious community and course platform for user experience designers. We’ve spent the last 18 years perfecting our community, courses, and most importantly, our work environment. And we’re never going to stop improving on what we’ve achieved so far!
We offer a 100% remote working environment where you have the freedom to become the best possible version of yourself—in both your professional and private life. But with great power comes great responsibility. The freedom of remote working places a vast responsibility on each of us here to continuously deliver excellent results, collaborate effectively, prioritize wisely, and improve our skills and performance.
Remote working is not for everyone. But all of us here who have tried and succeeded with remote working will never go back to regular 9-to-5 work, because there’s nothing quite like the freedom to work in a distraction-free and supportive environment.

Quotes That Reflect Our Work Culture
There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.
One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
