Product Designer at VillageMD
VillageMD is changing the trajectory of healthcare by empowering primary care physicians to make informed decisions and engage patients in meaningful ways. We work with thousands of clinicians and healthcare disruptors across the country to build and contribute to our platform to improve patient health while driving down the cost to deliver it.
We are a mission-oriented organization and are thrilled about the work that we do every day. We’re transparent, collaborative, and relentless in pursuit of our mission, all while doing so with humility and a low ego. We believe that diverse backgrounds and experiences create the best opportunity for innovation and the community that we are creating is greater than any individual.
As a Product Designer at VillageMD, you will have the opportunity to help craft an exceptional user experience for the digital products and tools we’re building for our patients. From helping our most at-risk patients manage their chronic conditions on a daily basis to seamlessly connecting all of our patients to their providers over video, we have an incredible opportunity to change how patients experience primary care. We’re actively building a product design team of generalists, but with strengths in different areas of the design process and we’d love for you to be a part of it.
Our ideal candidate is passionate about improving the lives of our patients, has a systematic and intentional approach towards design, and enjoys diving into pixels. You will have an opportunity to make an impact on multiple cross-platform products, and join a still small team where you could help shape and grow our design org.
