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.
