Job Description

Our Healthtech client is seeking a talented and enthusiastic Product Design Manager to lead their team of designers and help shape the future of the product. In this role, you’ll work closely with our team of designers, product managers, and engineers as designs progress from concept to launch.

Our client is a leading medical app for iPhone, iPad and Android.  They are well funded and growing – fast!

You will be joining an experienced team of problem solvers, tech geeks, caregivers and dog lovers who are passionate about creating tools that help people manage personal and family health challenges. They need leaders who can think big and grow big while maintaining fanatical attention to detail.

Responsibilities:

  • A natural leader — one with great mentorship abilities who can help attract and grow a strong design team as we expand

  • Is detail-oriented while still seeing the big picture

  • Has a strong understanding of technical limitations and liberties behind decisions

  • When you design, you sweat the details. Every one. Always.

Day to day:

  • Managing and developing a team of designers. This requires setting clear goals, managing project loads and allocating designers accordingly, ensuring deadlines are met and setting up team members for overall success.

  • Guiding the team to develop best practices for ensuring a high bar of quality

  • Recruiting new designers and actively participate in the hiring process

  • Designing simple, elegant interfaces that are consistent, easy to understand, and intuitive to use

  • Analyzing user interface problems and creating solutions that bridge user and business goals

  • Working closely with cross-functional teams on projects of varying length and complexity

Skills:

  • Minimum two years experience in a management or leadership role on a design team

  • 5+ years experience in a product design team launching multiple successful products and features, preferably on multiple platforms (iOS, Android, desktop, and web)
