We're looking for a Product Designer to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career. 

What You'll Do

We are looking for a product designer who is excited about designing software and services that can dramatically change the way cancer research is conducted by working within the Real-World Evidence (RWE) space. Our RWE datasets are used by researchers at life science companies and academic institutions to answer some of the most important questions in cancer. 

Our technology-first approach has allowed Flatiron Research to build RWE datasets with higher quality, accuracy, recency, and scale than any other available data set. We have active partnerships with top-tier academic medical centers, the top 15 biopharma companies in oncology, and the FDA, all focused on using RWE to answer critical questions quickly and safely. 

In this role, you'll work with the Spotlight team to improve the efficiency with which we can deliver custom data sets to our customers. Reporting to the Lead Product Design Manager, you'll design holistic solutions and services that empower our teams to serve our clients more quickly and efficiently. You will design product and service-based solutions that make it easier and faster to provide robust scientific evidence to our researchers by integrating analyses of user needs and building prototypes that communicate these ideas clearly to stakeholders. In addition, you'll also:

  • Be involved in every stage of the design process, from discovery user research to product scoping to feature implementation
  • Observe and talk to quantitative scientists, research oncologists, and statisticians in order to consider and evaluate problems from multiple angles, identifying user needs
  • Work within a cross-functional team to validate both low and hi-fidelity interaction design prototypes using feedback from internal and external stakeholders
  • Identify edge cases and display states to accurately show complex patient data
  • Communicate your ideas through design presentations and workshops to create alignment on proposed solutions and next steps before moving into feature development
  • Collaborate and partner with product managers, engineers, and clinical experts to shape quarterly roadmap work and objectives through strategic design input

Who You Are

You're a Product Designer doing product, interaction or UX design. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact. Successful designers typically possess a generalist skillset, and have the ability to concisely explain complex problems and projects to audiences of all backgrounds in both written and verbal form.

  • You have prior experience in service design, applied product design, user experience design, or interaction design
  • You are an excellent communicator, capable of presenting your ideas clearly and in the context of business value, expressed user value, and technical feasibility
  • You value outcome over output and understand the role of an iterative design process to measure progress toward a desired outcome. You thrive on collaboration and leading your partners through a shared design process that is structured around delivering high-value user experiences that meet our business goals 

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
