About CancerIQ

CancerIQ’s technology makes it possible for providers to recognize and empower patients who have increased risk for cancer at scale. Offering patients cancer risk assessment, genetic counseling and genetic testing is the right thing to do, but most hospitals (cancer centers, breast centers and women’s health providers) simply don’t have the time or the resources to do it. CancerIQ’s unique technology enables providers to screen, assess and manage entire patient populations based on individual genetic risks. That means they can prevent deadly, early-onset cancers. Providers who partner with CancerIQ can also improve quality of care and staff satisfaction, increase revenues and efficiencies, address social determinants of health, meet guidelines/requirements, and enhance customer loyalty.

  • Translating a written pitch into an actual functioning design system, with the ability to balance a long-term vision with quick, detailed iterations
  • Strong understanding of QA, reviewing deliverables and ensuring functions matches with Engineering
  • Develop design patterns while evolving overall framework

  • Demonstrate core design skills by showing you are capable of simplifying complex problems by establishing and enforcing design guidelines using contemporary best practices and standards
  • Identify future opportunities, working as a thought partner to Product, Engineering and Operations


What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years experience in a Product Designer role working on web applications
  • Proficient knowledge of key design and prototyping tools (e.g. Figma, Miro, Zeplin, Sketch, Adobe Creative Suite, InVision, Axure)
  • A portfolio showcasing captivating visual designs and projects
  • Experience creating wireframes, user flows, visual design assets, and interactive prototypes/high fidelity mockups
  • Ability to communicate design ideas cross-functionally or to stakeholders
  • Familiarity with design sprints and Agile methodologies
  • Strength designing for personas in B2B and B2C SaaS applications
  • Bonus points if you have a working knowledge of EMRs such as Epic, Cerner, or Athena

Non-Technical Qualifications:
