We’re recruiting a Youth & Family Coach and for our UX Design Fellowship!

What’s it like to work for Kudoz? Watch Janey give you the tour.

Youth & Family Coach

Do you have a background in positive psychology, working with diverse groups, and coaching – plus a strong motivator of change that knows how to get people out of their comfort zones?

Are you jazzed by helping others bust barriers to getting to the change that they want to see for themselves? Do you approach challenges with a growth mindset with a good measure of grit thrown in? Able to read people and non-verbal cues and adjust your approach?

If the answer is ‘yes’, keep reading. We’re on the search for a passionate and intrepid champion to be our next Kudoz Coach and help us take our award-winning platform to scale.

The Coach role is about getting to know people on their terms. They listen, observe, and play reflections back in such a way that enables individuals to gain clarity and initiate the changes they want to see in their own lives. Coaches hold the space for people to venture outside of their comfort zones, explore their values and strengths, and practice strategies to overcome anxieties. They do all of this by drawing on a variety of frameworks, including positive psychology and self actualizing theory, plus their own warmth and intuition. You skillfully break down opportunities for change into bite-sized pieces – steps that ask people to stretch, but don’t feel overwhelming.

You’re able to coach individuals and their families to get the most out of Kudoz and experiences!

You’ll join our team of other creative souls whose only limits are what we can imagine and make happen.

Does this sound like you? Ready to be part of an amazing team?

Please apply online only by April 19th, 2019.

UX Design Fellowship: Tech Coach & Design Researcher

#Fellowship #uxdesign #user research #engagement #techie #datascience #accessiblity #UI #designprocess #attitudinal #behavioral #qualitative #quantitative

part-time (3 days a week, 3 months)

We’re cooking up a new residency for 2018. It’s a unique opportunity for a tech savvy student or recent grad wanting experience with a social services startup.

We’re asking for a 3 month commitment. This will be an awesome resume building opportunity.

As our Tech Coach, you will primarily support adults with a disability to use apps to respond quickly, stay organized and collect media to reflect later. You will run coaching sessions, host tech focused experiences in the catalogue, and do first hand user research, reporting trends in user behaviour and considering new features.

You will also gain experience working on our internal tech stack (Python/React) as well as other UX, engagement and analytics tools like Invision, Sketch, Mixpanel & Twillio.

What we offer

Experience working with an international team at the forefront of social design. We’re an international team of designers, doers and social scientists, working with developers, researchers and filmmakers. We operate from our studio in Mt. Pleasent, Vancouver.

Exposure our work features in design journals and at conferences, and so will yours. This is the year Kudoz is getting traction. We’ve were shortlisted for an international Service Design Award (SDN) and won Vancouver’s Best of Show + UX for Good Awards. We’re recognized as a case study of a new kind of social service, with the promise to change the existing system. 

Impact you’ll be able to see your work and it’s impact in the real world. A big part of our work is testing directly with ‘real’ users — people with disabilities, their families, staff, and volunteers. We’ve been live prototyping for two years with about 200 users. Over that period we’ve designed several versions of a website, a mobile app and lots of printed materials. You would help us to test our  system to find gaps and opportunities for improvement.
