Join our team: Shape the design education of tomorrow

Career Opportunities at the IDF

The Interaction Design Foundation is the world's most prestigious community and course platform for User Experience designers. We've spent the last 15 years building our community and course platform from scratch – and we’re never going to stop improving on it! Join us today to make an real impact on thousands of designers worldwide and lower the cost of design education.

Here are some benefits of working with us:
Make a real impact in the world
Whether you are working on pushing out great code or designing awesome interfaces, you can be sure that your work will impact the lives of people around the globe. As a non-profit organisation focused on offering high quality, low cost design education, we are improving the lives of thousands of learners across the world.
Work anywhere, anytime
We have an amazing international team from diverse cultures (from sunny Singapore to colourful Turkey and more!), united by the common goal of producing an awesome, rock-star grade product. Working from home means working anywhere – and at your own schedule, too. Work smarter, not harder.
Amazing work meet-up trips
A team that meets together, stays together. Remote working does not mean working in isolation – we meet up with the rest of the team several times a year at spectacular locations, from exotic islands in Thailand to the breathtaking mountains of Patagonia in Argentina (see our pictures below).

Our work culture

  • We love results, productivity, focus and efficiency – achieved through an approach of "Working smarter not harder", a love for what we do, and taking great care of each other.
  • We value concentration and believe that interruptions, meetings, and egos can kill productivity. That's why work often does not happen at work.
  • We believe awesome results are produced when being in flow. That's why we value location independent work.
  • We celebrate each other’s work and consider what we do a labor of love.
  • We get inspiration from books like this one and this one.
  • We have no set hours, no uniforms to wear and no fixed location of work – we believe that creativity combined with motivation are the keys to success rather than meaningless conformity.
