Learning Designer H/F/X

OpenClassrooms makes education and career mobility accessible to everyone, everywhere. 🌎

We bring together a community of over 2 million passionate students. We are now the largest online school in Europe and Africa, and offer 100% online degrees recognized by the French state. 

We are very proud to have been certified B Corp (an international label that distinguishes impact companies) and to have been included in the French "Great Place to Work" ranking in April. OpenClassrooms is also part of the Next40 group for the second year in a row.

Very recently, we announced a new fundraising of 80 million dollars. This will allow us to invest in our product, continue our growth and make education even more accessible worldwide!

At OpenClassrooms, we hire learning designers to help us innovate and create the foundations of tomorrow's education. Learning designers use their knowledge of educational theory to create career-focused curriculum (learning paths) and engaging, step-by-step courses. They help subject matter experts present material in a compelling, well-researched way so students learn a maximum! They also continually improve learning paths and courses to ensure that they’re engaging, accessible and aligned with both job market needs and the latest learning techniques.
