This position is for a Product Designer, which is currently a remote position. While this position will work remotely, the ability to work standard business hours in one of the continental US time zones is required. In this role, you will help lead the detailed interaction design and visual design of emerging and existing solutions in the Slope software platform during product discovery and development. The day-to-day for a Product Designer runs the gamut from defining potential interaction designs for planned features, crafting refined visuals for the details of an agreed solution, developing and maintaining a design style guide, and collaborating with colleagues across the business to share and refine envisioned solutions. This role will also be involved in customer research activities such as usability testing. This is a fast-paced, dynamic position that is a perfect fit for a motivated and intelligent individual who is eager to get deep into the guts of the software product design and development in a start-up environment, and help improve the outcomes of customers using the Slope platform.
The role sits inside the Research and Development team. We are a lower-case-a agile organization practicing according to its original principles. We don’t have much overhead due to our small team size, bent towards autonomy, and preference for async communications as a distributed company. Our software platform exhibits a strong information architecture but is relatively rudimentary from a UI perspective, which allows the person operating in this role to have a fresh canvas on which to explore and evolve the interaction and visual designs.
Slope makes clinical trials boring with products, services, and technology that reduce operational complexity. We support clinical researchers and their patients around the world, with the ultimate goal of getting important drugs and devices to the market faster. As part of our solution we also procure, package, and ship clinical trial supplies to destinations across the United States.
