Our purpose
Healthcare is confusing. It’s hard to access, to understand, and to ensure you’re getting the right care that leads to the right outcomes. Grand Rounds exists to make a difference in all of it. Our vision is to craft a path to great health and health care, for everyone, everywhere. We work alongside company’s insurance plans, helping to guide people to the best care for them.

Our team
We’re a tight, collaborative team of product designers, marketing designers, and user experience researchers, working in close partnership with our product management and engineering teams. We are passionate advocates for all our users - from our award-winning Care Team, to our doctors and clinicians, to the members that use our products every day. We realize that we have the opportunity to transform a confusing and archaic system and we relish the challenge of making life better for the people that need us the most.

We’re looking for a Principal Designer to craft a better future with us. Somebody who can envision and deliver delightful, insightful, and engaging experiences which will guide our Members to achieve better health outcomes. You’ll help us transform how people access, understand, and interact with their care.

You’re excited to own an entire design system and styleguide end-to-end. You have crafted and delivered insightful experiences that brought clarity to complex situations. You think in terms of design frameworks and see how all the pieces visually fit together and work in harmony with each other. You love educating people on the merits of gradients versus textures. You possess a deep and abiding fondness for fonts and look for ways to bring together styles in engaging and unusual combinations.

Cross-functional peers across the organization come to you for advice on how to better understand the impact they’re delivering in marketing, sales, and product.  Your clear and inviting communication brings people along, and your empathy and connection help them effectively reach their users.

Your work demonstrates your strengths, and an innate curiosity to understand people’s needs and working styles. You build positive relationships with product managers, engineers, and front-line support. You value open and honest discussion and are always looking to learn. You wholeheartedly empathize with the human side of the patient experience and want to make healthcare delightful.
