If you’re familiar with our work, you know we design, build, and ship beautiful healthcare software for companies of all sizes, like Apple, Microsoft, and Johnson & Johnson, to micro startups. Often the applications require dealing with big data, involved workflows, information visualization, and competing business and design directions. We wrangle all of these variables, are hyper-concerned about guiding people through tough health decisions, and produce eyebrow-raising results.
Our idealized candidate can be described in this way:
First and foremost, you need to be exceptional: loving to design and build healthcare software, making is in your DNA, solving crazy problems with 50 different crazy solutions.
Second, you need to be a system thinker and serial do’er: to see more than just the design and production tasks but the entire product ecosystem. You will need to lead not just yourself but other studio’ites and clients. Your responsibilities include leading projects and, over time, learning how to manage the entire service (from development to user interface design to process engineering to staffing to budget to customer service) to designing software that is destined to ship. You will not be a cog in a machine. Your ideas will directly shape the experiences you create. Ultimately, you will be your own business unit within the studio and grappling with the holy trinity: design, technology, and business.
Third, you have to really care about Design, your fellow staff, changing the pseudo-miserable state of US healthcare, and Spaceship Earth: being adrenalized about business, writing, open source, design, innovation, and craftsmanship. You are given great freedom and responsibility for managing your own work program to mentoring staff to driving company goals. Taking pride in and feeling responsible for a high degree of personal ownership in your work is critical because thousands to millions of people will immediately interact with your finished designs. We are looking for a passionate, inspiring, design-obsessed apostle who can increase our IQs (as well as dramatically increase your own).
Not a postscript:
Ethics is not situationally optional. If you don’t have integrity, you don’t have much else.
That’s the kind of person we want. If you have those three qualities, just about anything else is negotiable.
If this sounds mildly interesting either as an internship or full-time position, email me, Juhan Sonin (email@example.com), your resume and portfolio. I’ll attempt to get back to you within one business day.
