I'm working for Counsyl, a startup genomics company that has created the first universal genetic carrier test for over 100 diseases. We're looking to hire UX designers that are versatile and interested in building the UI for the medical genome. More below:
Location: South San Francisco, CA
Over the last few years, we've grown from a dorm room start to become one of the largest clinical genome centers in the world. Our test is now prescribed by physicians for more than 1% of all births in the United States. With so many people looking at our work, we now have an increased need for design.
Because good design signals something to a patient. It signals that when other things in life may be broken, that this object in front of them will still function.
It signals something to a physician as well. It tells them that this is something different, something that rises above the all-too-common grayness of the US medical system.
We're bringing the genome to the clinic, and in the process we'd like to bring some beauty as well. So if you are a print, web, or industrial designer who wants to build the UI for the medical genome, please do get in touch.
The primary requirement is good taste. You should also have a web-accessible portfolio with several examples of your design expertise. Our designers are generalists, and you should be able to do several of the following:
We don't expect expertise in everything on the list, but you should consider yourself versatile enough that you can tackle all these challenges and more. Moreover, while you need not be a programmer by any means, you should be highly proficient with Apple products and ready to learn power tools like git to improve your efficiency.
In general, you should be interested in designing the first widely adopted physical and virtual tools for interacting with the medical genome.
