Product Designer

| Greater NYC Area

Galileo is building the future of healthcare - today. Using innovative mobile technology and human-centered design, we’re looking to improve the quality and affordability of medical care for all -- including those with Medicare and Medicaid.

Based in NYC, our company is founded by a successful entrepreneur (One Medical, Epocrates), led by a top-notch team, and well-funded from some of the best investors in the country. We seek curious, talented, team-oriented individuals with a diverse set of backgrounds who ultimately want to make a difference.

What You’ll Do
Reporting to our Product Design Director, Galileo’s Product Designer will have the rare opportunity to reimagine how patients interact with healthcare. Specifically, you will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of our patient’s needs—practicing empathy at every step while designing a product for users who are sick, concerned, or in pain.
  • Take ownership of the end-to-end design process, choosing the right tools at the right moments for definition, ideation, and validation.
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to apply pixel-perfect attention to detail, and when to make low-fi sketches and prototypes.
  • Work closely with engineers to evolve and expand our design system across platforms—understanding the possibilities and limitations of each.

Who You Are

  • You have 4+ years of related experience at tech companies or digital agencies. Early stage startup experience is major plus.
  • You have shipped many consumer-facing products over the years including native products on iOS and/or Android.
  • You have a highly refined aesthetic sense and a knack for interaction. You design products that not only meet user needs, but are delightful and engaging.
  • You employ a user-focused design approach. You are constantly challenging your own assumptions and crave feedback, whether through qualitative user research or quantitative testing.
  • You are an effective communicator but low ego. You make space for all voices to be heard and you champion the best ideas regardless of their source.
  • You are a team player who is always happy to step out of your normal role when there is a need that requires your help.
  • You are organized, autonomous, and responsible. You take ownership of every detail of your work and follow through on your commitments.
  • You are passionate about creating digital products that have a positive impact on the health and welfare of their users.

How We Hire
Galileo is committed to hiring the best talent from a range of backgrounds and experiences, - including but, not limited to - gender, ethnic, political, economic, religious, sexual orientation, and other personality traits. We believe in a strong culture that fosters teamwork, excellence and sound decision-making -- one that is based on mutual respect and trust. We appreciate candidates who are open and honest about what they’re looking for so we can ensure it’s a fit on both sides.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Head of Delivery/Operations

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm really excited to launch our mobile app. Of all the products we're working on, the app will be the most visible to patients. For months we have been working closely with our Clinical Team to translate their decades of experience as Doctors into a digital product that feels just as trustworthy and empathetic as they are.
