ATÖLYE (founded in 2013) is a community-powered creative services organization that provides services to both clients and creative professionals globally. ATÖLYE consists of a Strategic Design Studio, an Academy, a Creative Hub, and a Ventures arm.
ATÖLYE’s Strategic Design Studio works with companies to design and implement strategic solutions to the complex challenges they face. The Academy offers learning programs that equip individuals and teams with skills in creative leadership, radical collaboration, and systemic design. The Ventures arm offers enterprise entrepreneurship programs through business modeling, and finally, the Creative Hub creates the environment for each of these components to interact by fostering a community of over 150+ multi-disciplinary creatives who aspire to connect, learn, and grow around purpose-driven work.
In April 2019, ATÖLYE joined the kyu Collective (kyu.com), a collective of the leading creative organizations in the world whose purpose is to be a source of creativity that propels the economy and society forward.
We curate diligently so we can better co-create.
We make informed decisions about the people we invite in, the projects we work on, and the organizations we collaborate with. They come in different shapes, sizes, and colors but they share one important trait: An insatiable desire to better themselves and the communities that surround them.
We live, work, and learn in a constant state of flow.
Our system has ill-defined boundaries by design, which allows for a steady flow of people, ideas, and perspectives. Our processes expand and contract to adapt to situations as needed, meaning we are always pushing the limits of our permeability—across geographies, projects, and industries.
We grow individually to mature as a whole.
We are committed to nourishing the notion of a “growth mindset” in a holistic way. We are invested in the development of individuals and organizations by co-creating the necessary tools, methods, and environments that allow us to continuously shift and grow together.
We are a community-centric organization. This means that our approach spearheads community-centered thinking in design and gravitates around the notion of an individual’s journey in relation to a community.
Every ATÖLYE team member, by default, is an ATÖLYE community member. Once you are a team member, you will be part of the ATÖLYE Community that consists of creative individuals and teams who aspire to connect, learn, and grow around purpose-driven work while having the opportunity to participate in community events, rituals, and social activities.
About the Job — Learning Designer
Since the early days, one thing we hear from people is how transformative it was for them to collaborate with ATÖLYE—just as it was for us. As we collectively strive for long-term impact in every project partnership, ATÖLYE has become a source of inspiration and transformation for its team, community, clients, and partners.
At ATÖLYE, every project is an opportunity to grow as a community where we refine our values, adopt new mindsets, and learn the necessary skills. People who collaborate under ATÖLYE’s roof often testify that building individual and organizational capabilities of creative leadership, interdisciplinary collaboration, and design thinking is a significant impact ATÖLYE delivers during a project’s lifecycle.
ATÖLYE’s Academy is a brand new initiative—and it’s on a trajectory to scale ATÖLYE’s impact far and beyond to become a source of inspiration and transformation for over thousands of people in the next years. The Academy will foster a community of changemakers and accompany them on their journey to become more efficient leaders, facilitators, and designers through offering a series of programs, resources, events, and workshops for individuals and organizations.
This is why we are looking for a highly organized, passionate, and experienced Learning Designer in our Academy team who will take on a critical role to bring this vision to life.
