Aleph Beta

UI/UX Designer

Job Description: UI/UX Designer

Company description: With over ten thousand paying subscribers, Aleph Beta is a growing non-profit media company producing high quality animated Torah videos and podcasts for teenagers and adults. We believe that Torah is meant to be our guide, but we don’t always know exactly how. No one reads the Bible like it’s a self-help manual, right? Aleph Beta’s mission is to read the text closely, and to discover, in surprising ways, how the Torah isn’t just a rulebook, but a guidebook, one that has profound wisdom that is relevant and meaningful in our everyday lives.

Aleph Beta is unique in that it is technically a non-profit, but we are run as a startup. Working here affords you unique opportunities to hone your skills in a lean environment, focus on growth in what is essentially a SaaS business, and feel good about what you do for a living.

The role promises high personal and professional growth. We are a company of creatives, and seek to incorporate the values that we teach into our own company. We value focus, and a healthy work-life balance. We offer the opportunity to create a major impact on the world, and be well-compensated for your efforts.

Job Description: Aleph Beta is looking to make exciting investments in our product offering that have the potential to majorly impact the organization’s growth and the depth of engagement from users.
