Trala is a tech-powered online music school. Our mission is to make world-class music education accessible to every single person on Earth.
Right now, music education is so expensive that the joy of music is available only to the rich and urban. Imagine instead a world where all 4 billion people who will pick up an instrument in the next 30 years could get a world-class education. Imagine how much more music and joy there would be in the world. That is the future we’re obsessed with creating.
Our first product, Trala: Learn Violin, is a mobile application that teaches anyone how to play violin. We do this using movie-quality tutorial videos featuring diverse violinists, signal processing that listens to students play their real violins and gives instant feedback on every mistake, and a curriculum that prioritizes accessibility and diversity. This is crazy-hard and requires us to solve novel problems in signal processing, app design, user psychology, and education theory.
Over the last 3 years, we have organically grown Trala to 250,000 downloads, a worldwide student base, and support from some of the most famous musicians in the world. Our students are ages 7 to 70 and live in rural Montana, Lebanon, tiny Pacific islands, Hong Kong, and our hometown of Chicago. They’re not businesses or governments, they’re people. They’ve dreamt of learning violin for years and we’re fulfilling those dreams.
In the next 18 months, we will:

In light of COVID, we’re a fully remote team but headquartered in Chicago. This is a fully remote position.
You will be the second designer on the team. Your mission will be to make the UX of Trala’s products impeccable and boundary-breaking in the industry. You will own the user experience of Trala’s products. You will improve or help create processes that ensure high-quality products. You will speak with students, teachers, engineers, and marketers to elegantly solve our students’ needs. You’ll probably become friends with some of our students—that happens to all of us. On the day-to-day, you’ll be designing our mobile apps as well as the user journeys of new programs like private lessons and group lessons.
