We’re looking for a versatile Product Designer to build experiences for one of our internal tools.
Design at Infermedica
We are human, and we design for humans. Each of us is different, but at the same time we have much in common : we are open, curious, and stubborn.
Commitment and collaboration are at the heart of everything we do. We are dedicated to delivering top-tier design, and that can’t happen without thorough research.
We believe that together we can achieve much more than apart.
In our day-to-day work, we design and improve our products. We think about how something works, not just how it looks.
Before we design a solution, we try to understand the problem and its cause, leveraging insights from research and data.
We always ask plenty of questions, and we love to challenge existing assumptions.
At Infermedica, design is an integral part of our product development process. Not only that, we have the time and resources to do it right.
Our design toolkit consists of Figma, Miro, Dovetail, and Lookback. We use Slack, Meet and Around to communicate, and Jira to plan our work.
The Design team is divided into three subteams : Communication Design, Product Design, and UX Research. We have our own routines and habits, including design critiques and design talks.
On the flip side, each designer is also embedded in a cross-functional product team where we collaborate with product managers, engineers, and data scientists.
Why do we need you?
At the core of Infermedica technology is a database of medical concepts, including an interlinked network of symptoms, conditions, and risk factors.
We manage this database through an internal tool called MetaBase.
Every day, more than 60 medical experts, translators, and editors use MetaBase to create and improve our content. To keep this process running smoothly, we consciously design user experiences across the app.
And that can't happen without the help of a product designer.
What you’ll do
Design MetaBase. In this role, you’ll lead the end-to-end design process from product discovery through interface design to evaluation of solutions.
We’ll give you plenty of freedom, so you can provide great user experiences and high-quality design.
Think systemically. Because no problem ever exists in complete isolation (Russell Ackoff), you’ll need to analyze the interactions between different parts of MetaBase, break down how they affect each other, and ensure the integrity of the whole system.
Build a design system. Currently, MetaBase is built on top of an external component library called Element. We’re going to not only extend this library but also create a complete design system that will include information such as principles, guidelines, branding, and more.
Act as a design advocate. While people at Infermedica can appreciate good design, we still need to showcase recent projects and increase awareness of the value delivered by design and research.
Focus on the user. Meeting user needs is our top priority. You’ll have direct and easy access to each type of user (doctors, translators, editors), so you can identify user pain points, find new opportunities, and evaluate your designs.
Collaborate with others. You’ll be joining a cross-functional MetaBase team. You’ll work alongside product managers, data scientists, and engineers to iterate on new and existing features.
Enjoy your autonomy. One of our core values is trust. We always assume good intent and let you do the rest. You’ll be able to generate ideas, initiate projects, and run experiments in fact, we encourage you to do so.
What you’ll need
Previous experience. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing design or what school you graduated from. Being the right fit is what matters.
You should be an expert in either UI, UX, or visual design, but we will appreciate any experience in various disciplines across product design.
A strong portfolio. Send us relevant work samples that demonstrate your product design skills across user research, product discovery, UX design, UI design, design systems, and visual design.
Great communication skills. Some people say that great design speaks for itself. That's often not the case. You should be able to proactively seek input, provide regular feedback, articulate your ideas to your peers and stakeholders, and explain the trade-offs involved in your decisions.
Systems thinking. Multidimensional tools like MetaBase require the application of systems thinking. You are able to look at a system as a whole, understand dependencies between its various parts, and ensure consistency across the entire system.
Problem-solving skills. You are used to dealing with complexity and navigating through ambiguity. When faced with challenging situations, you just roll up your sleeves and get the job done.
You can lead initiatives from start to finish, but know when to ask for help.
Sense of purpose. As designers and researchers, we believe we are doing something that matters. If you are searching for a place where you can do meaningful work and pursue your passion for design, we’d love to hear from you.
Courage. You are not afraid to present bold ideas and challenge existing assumptions. Furthermore, you love to experiment, work with hypotheses and iterate rapidly.
Curiosity. Asking questions like Why? , For whom? , and What for? is part of your daily routine. You want to know as much as possible about the problem, the user, the customer, and the context.
It’s even better if
You have experience designing data-heavy dashboards and visualizations
You have experience working in a healthcare organization
