Principal User Experience Designer

Minneapolis, MN
Healthcare is complex and impersonal, but it doesn’t have to be. It takes research, testing, empathy, and iteration to make the complex simple and build products that actually fit for patients. Physera is not like so many who are satisfied with just talking about these principles, we intentionally structure our company to ensure these principles are at its heart.

We are looking for a passionate user experience designer to join us in building better healthcare. You will lead UX at Physera and help us build out a proven design discipline as we transition from fast-growing startup to everyday institution. Initially you will focus on research and usability testing processes while also ensuring that we adhere to industry-best standards for design patterns and accessibility. Over time you will have the opportunity to lay the foundations for, staff up, and direct an industry-leading UX team if that is a career path you would like to pursue.

You will be joining Physera as the first dedicated UXer and will work together with existing visual and service designers to make up our Experience team. The Experience team will work closely with Engineering, Data Science, and Customer Success to craft products that support and enrich the lives of our patients.
