Design Director

San Francisco
Hinge Health’s mission is to improve the lives of people suffering from chronic conditions by digitizing the delivery of care - starting with musculoskeletal health. Our vision is to be the world’s most patient-centered digital hospital. We’re already achieving remarkable outcomes - helping people overcome chronic pain, avoid surgeries, return to work, and get back to doing the things they love. We've raised over $51M and our growth shows no sign of slowing.

We’re looking for a mission-driven design leader to join us in creating behavioral health change. You will be a leader within the product development team and will develop a vision of the end to end experience of how our patients engage with our product and guide the execution of this vision. You will also partner with our leadership team to come up with our design and brand strategy, and translate that across a multitude of touchpoints, including app, web, hardware, and print. This is a high-impact role with the opportunity to empower tens of thousands of people to get back to the things they love. 

The ideal candidate will have experience in UX, HCI, service design, or product design for consumer or user-facing enterprise mobile apps. Startup, healthcare, or hardware experience is a plus but not a must. We’re looking for an individual who always goes to the end user, is comfortable prototyping and iterating quickly to validate, and can see the "big picture" but is also willing to continuously improve every detail of our user experience.
