Senior Product Designer
Our Mission 🚀
We are on a mission to build a more equitable world by helping people from all backgrounds gain the skills they need to get hired into roles they love.
What is Formation?
Our AI platform powers our flagship Engineering Fellowship, helping engineers from non-traditional and historically underrepresented backgrounds get hired at the world’s top tech companies. In 2022, we helped our engineers increase their compensation by an average of over $100K. We have over 400 active engineers on the platform and are growing fast.
