An opportunity to make a true impact on peoples' lives with this European HealthTech, as their first full-time end-to-end Designer.
A start-up trying to make life better for people suffering from chronic kidney disease.
They’re bringing together technology and health coaches in an app that can be prescribed by doctors. Their system aims to delay and in some cases remove the need for dialysis, hugely improving patient quality of life. The product is a mobile app but they also have a web-based back end product.
It’s currently a small team and you’d be their first full-time designer on the team, taking over from a freelancer that has been designing the product to date, alongside the CPO who used to be a designer herself
Remote first business with team members in the UK and Europe. Ideally looking for someone who can commute to London easily when needed and collaborate with the other team members.
They need an end-to-end designer but the visual craft is a key element. Here’s how we broke it down:
Research – You don’t need to be a hugely experienced researcher. However, you need to understand the role research plays and have been exposed to research practices. CPO will likely continue to run the research processes and has already done lots of it but you will ideally support her with things like writing research requirements. Ideally, you’ll have an appetite to learn and throw yourself into research even if it’s a weak point for you.
UX – You need to be able to take research findings and develop multiple solutions, test and identify the best to take forward and and explain your thinking and reasoning behind decisions properly. You’ll need to demonstrate an ability to think through the wider interactions and journeys beyond just micro parts of a product.
UI – This is going to be a key factor. You will need to be a strong, visually skilled Product Designer that can actually work through end-to-end.
What will you be working on?
In summary: A Product Designer with a UI focus + Mobile app experience + Strong UX process + Knowledge around research practices.
Workshop facilitation – This includes how you prep the team for a workshop and proper planning around it. Lots of people have shown very unstructured, poorly planned workshops that would ultimately just waste their time. Something that as a start-up they cannot do.
Communication skills – As a small, remote team this person needs to be a great communicator also (I’d say this will imperative for ay Product Designer imo).
