About the role

We’re looking for a Product Designer with a passion for finding solutions that allow customers and users (patients, healthcare providers, and business partners) to intuitively use our products. The ideal candidate will be skilled at each stage of the design process but always focused on the needs of the customer. You thrive in a fast-paced agile environment and will work with cross-functional team members (including developers, product managers, marketers) to build an optimal user experience for our customers.

Responsibilities

  • Take broad, conceptual ideas and turn them into something useful and valuable for our customers and users
  • Set design requirements based on information from internal stakeholders and user research.
  • Work closely with Product and Engineering to create and revise patient-, healthcare provider-facing, business partner-facing, and internal user-facing applications and experiences that are incredibly simple and elegant
  • Contribute to high-level strategic decisions within the Product Team
  • Solicit feedback from users and stakeholders to continually raise our bar for quality

Requirements

Education

  • Undergraduate degree in Design and/or technical field

Experience

  • Proven experience in all phases of the design process including user research, copywriting, wireframing, prototyping, visual design, interaction design, and usability testing
  • 5+ years of UX/UI design experience for web-based applications with emphasis on end-user/customer product design
  • Experience in start-ups, high-tech organizations, and/or entrepreneurial roles preferred

Skills, competencies, and capabilities

  • Attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills to communicate and support your design ideas and rationales
  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional team members
  • Ability to collect and interpret both qualitative and quantitative feedback
  • Passion for design; not satisfied with the status quo and always thinking of ways to improve
  • Creative problem-solving skills

Other Plusses

  • Experience working with user demographics including (but not limited to): healthcare providers, cancer patients, health system administrators, scientists, and medical researchers is preferred
  • Experience working on products in healthcare or a similarly highly complex, regulated environment
  • Mission alignment (i.e., enthusiasm for helping cancer patients learn about and access the best treatment options for fighting their disease, as well as for driving wholesale improvements in how and how quickly new cancer treatments are understood and become available to those in need of them)
