Us

Antimatter is building a world for learning. That world...

  • Is intensely visual
  • Relies on creation instead of regurgitation
  • Speaks internet

Why are we doing this? Because the internet is our primary culture now, and knowledge transfer is accelerated when speaking in the language and culture we speak everyday on the internet and with friends. Antimatter was inspired by the many great educational meme communities on the internet especially r/physicsmemes and @historyinmemes—as well as the use of memes in the classroom—see herehere, and here. But beyond memes, we want the next Hamilton to be produced on Antimatter.

In a nutshell: Which flashcard is more likely to help you remember who the other astronaut on Apollo 11 was?

Flashcards An Antimatter flashcard vs. a regular flashcard: Who wore it better? (Seriously if you wanna drop your email here I’ll ask you about Apollo 11 vis-a-vis these flashcards tomorrow)

And if you wanna inspect our product chops and sensibilities, go right ahead.

Compensation

Antimatter is a design-driven company. Our engineers all maintain their own creative pursuits and our success relies almost entirely on figuring out the interaction models for learning via contemporary language and culture (that contemporary language and culture will come to dominate learning is not something that we ever question).

Accordingly we're offering a substantial equity package to a Senior Product Designer who will lead design at Antimatter for years to come.

What we need from this role

  • Someone to take us from zero to one. As the first full-time design hire you'll have an outsized influence in setting our design culture, process, and voice.
  • Someone who can dip in and out and different modalities. Whether it's designing a game-like mechanic or a promotional video for the App Store, we're a small team today and we're all pitching in with whatever we can, whatever it takes to get the job done.
  • Someone who can design incentives first and then the UX/UI to drive rewards for our users. This is a design-driven company that's defined by our users' outcomes in learning. That requires deep thought and strong opinion about how to incentivize learners to not only push forward on their own journeys, but to help others. We trust that the UX/UI will follow.
  • Someone who's willing to immerse themselves in learning and education design. You'll work closely with a small team of designers, educators, and fellow engineers to build a mode of learning that's never been done before.

You

  • You want to have a world-thumping impact on how people learn.
  • You love internet culture. A core principle of Antimatter is that internet is our primary culture now and you want to be a part of expanding that culture.
  • Are on a mission to make a positive impact. We're here at Antimatter because there's nothing we'd rather do than making people smile and laugh while they grow as learners and as humans.
  • You care deeply about your craft. You organize and comment your code well and appreciate when a designer organizes and names layers well.
  • You have been an integral part of a team that has built a consumer or gaming product used by hundreds of thousands of people or more.
  • You care deeply about your craft. You organize and comment your code well and appreciate when a designer organizes and names layers well.
  • You are a warm person that other people like to work and be with.
  • You’re eager to work with colleagues who will challenge you.
  • You want to build a great product so badly that you’re eager to talk to as many current and future users that you can.
  • You love to learn so much that you’re going to dedicate the next chapter of your life to helping millions of people learn more effectively and enjoyably.
  • Everything below makes you laugh and feel happy and optimistic
