About CancerIQ

CancerIQ is a venture-backed digital health company that uses predictive analytics to help doctors understand their patient's risk of getting cancer and dying from cancer. By making it faster and cheaper for providers to order cancer genetic testing and interpret results, we improve patient access to life-saving services that can preempt or prevent this devastating disease. We market our solutions nationwide to cancer centers, breast centers and genetics practices, and have grown 30x since emerging from private beta in Spring 2016.

How do you fit in?

CancerIQ is looking for creative minds that are hungry for innovation, want to solve problems, create intuitive software, and change the face of healthcare.

The UX designer will also be expected to design the overall functionality of the product, and in order to ensure a great user experience for clinicians and patients, iterate upon it in accordance with user-testing. Any experience in healthcare is desired.

  • Experience creating wireframes, user flows, visual design assets, and interactive prototypes/high fidelity mockups
  • Ability to communicate design ideas cross functionally
  • Familiarity with design sprints and the agile methodology
  • Bonus points if you have a working knowledge of EMRs such as Epic, Cerner, Athena, and GE Centricity

An Insider's view of CancerIQ

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We all believe in our product and want to see it succeed, which means we're always pushing the boundaries of healthcare and of ourselves. We work fast and encourage each other, so we learn fast. Here you can propose an idea, see it built and launch it, which you don't get at a larger organization. In my first 6 weeks I released a brand new product!

Hilary Mohs

Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I get to sell to people that are excited to hear from me. Our product solves a problem for everyone - including our sales channel partners that I get to interact with and learn from. From drafting proposals & negotiating terms to providing feedback on product & marketing ideas - it's never a dull moment at CancerIQ

Annie Stoik

Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I initially joined to get some practical experience before going to grad school for genetic counseling. While observing workflow and supporting clinical users, I fell in love with CancerIQ's user-centered design process and never wanted to leave. I'm now transitioning to the product team and look forward to a career in product management.

Sadie Freedman

Product Specialist

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to be a product-focused, "apple" of the health tech world that is able to build products that make the most complex concepts in genomics easy to understand and apply in everyday care. Sadly there are few healthcare solutons that are simple, elegant, and informative enough that doctors and patients will actually love

Haibo Lu

VP of Product & Customer Success

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Healthcare data, specifications, and interfaces tend to be archaic and non-standard across healthcare systems. Developing a modern platform that is inter-operable with old systems requires designing and building around inherent complexities through careful domain-driven modeling, flexible micro-services, and sophisticated adapters.
