WiseTech Academy (a business unit of WiseTech Global) was launched in 2022 with a mission to provide an educational platform and content focused on industry leading courses in supply chains and logistics via a hybrid marketplace. In this case, the platform acts as a marketplace for educational services, catering to both business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions. This learning platform also contains training material and product documentation for Cargowise. It’s only one year old, but it's growing quickly, both as a team inside of WiseTech Global, and with its customer base and content offerings.

What does the work look like?
As one of several embedded Product Designers in WiseTech Academy, you will be responsible for the quality of the learning experiences for a variety of target audiences. Your strong understanding of user-centred design principles, combined with your expert skills and experience in web and interaction design allows you to take on design projects from their initial research phase all the way to high-fidelity screens and interactions. You will be working directly with Product Managers, Engineers, and eLearning content specialists to solve user problems.
We’re still in the process of building out a cohesive identity of our user experience. While we have a design system in place for the product CargoWise, WiseTech Academy still allows for visual exploration and innovation, to offer the best possible user experience for our various target audiences.
You will also be part of the broader, growing, WiseTech Global Design team. You’ll be reporting to the Lead Designer of WiseTech Academy, and, you will take part in larger Design team rituals like; Design Updates, Design Critique, mentoring peers, and educating cross-functional counterparts on the value of Design.
Prior experience in the education industry is a bonus, but by no means required. Much more important is your drive and eagerness to learn, as you build your knowledge of our complex industry and the most appropriate learning experiences.
