Presentation Designer

Job description

Major League Hacking (MLH) is looking for a Presentation Designer to help us educate and empower our community. Every year, thousands of developers, designers, and makers attend MLH events where they learn new skills and develop a deep passion for technology. As a Presentation Designer, you’ll be responsible for taking unfinished presentations for our MLH Localhost education program and improving the visual design to match MLH’s existing style guidelines.


You may find the existing presentation for Bug-Free Coding with SPARK Ada here and Building Scalable Apps with CockroachDB here. As a Presentation Designer, you’ll work closely with the Product Manager for the presentations on which you work. These presentations are a critical part of workshops that launch our hackers into new technologies and the Presentation Designer plays an important role in providing a great experience to our audience!

Key Duties and Responsibilities

  • Design visually-appealing presentations. These presentations will be presented to you unfinished, with all of the content written for you. You will take these presentations and improve the visual design and layout. Any changes that you make will not change the information being delivered.
  • Iterate over the presentations you design based on feedback provided to you from the Product Manager or other MLH team members.
  • Inspire hackers! The presentations that you design will be many of our hackers’ first introductions to the technology taught in the workshop — thousands of hackers each year will learn from and build off of what you help to create.

Requirements

  • Ability to design attractive, easy-to-follow presentations.
  • Attention to detail.
  • Responsiveness — we’ll be iterating over your work quickly.
  • Experience working with Python, JavaScript, HTML, & CSS or any other coding language is helpful but not required.
