Senior UX Designer
This company is embarking on a bold digital agenda to transform health care and empower millions of customers on their path to better health. We are creating innovative digital solutions that will make health care more accessible, more integrated and more reliable for more people, online and in our stores. We are looking for passionate, driven people who want to join a high energy and growing team to make a difference in customers’ lives and who want to be on the ground floor of digital innovation that aims to reinvent what a pharmacy and a health care company can be.
As a Senior UX Designer, you will be part of a growing team of digital innovators and user experience professionals that want to make an impact and help people manage their health by designing experiences that meet user goals and exceed expectations. Your empathy for people—customers, patients, caregivers—informs your decisions; your entrepreneurial spirit makes you the ultimate problem solver; your creativity leads you beyond tired constraints and inspires others; and your passion for technology and design connects you to the universe of innovation around us and can only be matched by your desire to deliver great user experiences.
Why we need you
In this specific role, you will be at the forefront of our Digital transformation to a hyper-agile product design and development process. In partnership with an external agency that is guiding us through this transformation, you will be implementing a new agile-like process by which we will deliver better products, faster.
You will be part of a talented cross-functional team (product, design, and engineering) working on one of our most strategic initiatives. In addition to delivering this project, one of your key responsibilities will include bringing your knowledge back to our team to educate and train more team members, as we plan to incrementally increase the number of projects following this new process.
Who we’re looking for
In order to be successful in this role, you need to be a well-rounded UX designer, who can solve complex business challenges while being an advocate of the user. You are able to conduct user interviews and leverage various methods to uncover user needs. In addition to producing wireframes, you are able to craft visual designs that follow our Brand guidelines and design system. You understand the importance of UX copy and how it can impact an experience. You also know when to pull in experts (visual designers, copywriters, researchers, etc) at the right time to supplement your skillset. Finally, you exhibit impeccable communication skills that you leverage to ensure smooth and efficient collaboration with your other team members and stakeholders.
Minimum of 5 years experience (8+ preferred) in UX design, with experience working with cross- functional teams (IT, Product, Research, etc).
Experience with agile and lean software development practices is highly preferred.
Expertise in responsive web design and mobile UX.
Expert proficiency in Sketch and InVision. Solid understanding of front-end development.
