What is Cadmus?

At Cadmus, we are committed to improving teaching and learning in higher education. We believe assessment provides a powerful learning opportunity, which is why we have spent the last five years building an online assessment platform that puts simplicity and learning at its core.

We pour quality and care into everything we do; allowing us to develop a product our users love, and strong relationships with our community.

Today, Cadmus is used by universities globally to create and deliver incredible learning experiences to hundreds of thousands of students. Join us on this learning journey as we transform education across Australia and beyond!

Why do we need you?

As we scale our product, it is important that we maintain a high-quality experience for teachers and students all over the world — ensuring we are constantly learning from our users and customers to create high-quality, creative solutions to improve learning. That is why we are looking for a talented Product Designer to join our product team. With countless opportunities to make an impact, you will help us solve exciting design challenges and deliver improved design experiences that will take Cadmus even further.

What's the role?

You will use UX & UI best practices to help us build new features, manage our design systems, and evolve our brand strategies. This is a truly unique opportunity to help shape our product, design processes and contribute to the culture of our product team.

As our Product Designer, your goal is to:

  • Contribute to our product vision and build a strategy that takes us from 100K users to 1 million.
  • Design and build a globally recognised, market-leading assessment-for-learning platform.
  • Build a best practice, in-house design function that helps us scale our operations globally.
  • Champion a company-wide culture of design thinking, embedding UX and UI best practices into our products and daily operations.
  • Evolve and help communicate our brand, principles and product to our global higher education community.
