UI Graphic Designer 

 

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Mount Sinai Health System is accelerating a transition to a business and operating model oriented towards the changing demands of the healthcare industry. Success in this new model will require, among other things, an expanded focus on the consumer. Traditionally, the focus of consumer engagement was limited to their role as patients and associated primarily with the services rendered in our hospitals and physician offices. 


In the new model, Mount Sinai will need to engage consumers, their families, and caregivers throughout the health care life cycle, i.e. when they shop for and buy health care, when they are trying to stay well, and when they need care. Beyond the hospital and the doctor’s office, we will engage them at home, at work, and in the community. We must engage with them when and how they want to be engaged. This will require Mount Sinai to “productize” these points of engagement with consumers. It will require new leaders with core competencies in the areas of software engineering, big data, behavioral economics, person-centered design, and rapid iteration development and experimentation, all of which are more frequently and effectively practiced outside the healthcare industry today. 


Our charter is to productize solutions using the latest and greatest technologies, operating like a startup, but leveraging a strong bias for action, clinical expertise, and robust funding from the broader Mount Sinai ecosystem.

 

POSITION OVERVIEW

As a User Interface Designer you will get to work on a high-caliber team within one of the top health systems in the world. To drive this expanded focus on the consumer, the Mount Sinai Health System is launching a new Consumer Digital Solutions team, as an affiliate of the Population Health division, Mount Sinai Health Partners (MSHP). The Graphic Designer will be responsible for building beautiful, consumer-grade experiences using the latest mobile and web technologies and design considerations. You will be the advocate for the Patient, our consumer user.  You will collaborate with the Product Strategy team, as well as clinical, operational, and sales leads within the health system to develop integrated solutions that unify and re-imagine the patient experience. 


The ultimate goal is to deliver real-world, modern products that help patients with access, navigation, service, payments, and overall clinical outcomes. The long-term vision for the team is to scale this platform across the enterprise and potentially ‘spin out’ to develop products for and with other health systems.

 

SCOPE OF RESPONSIBILITIES

 

   Team Collaboration: Work with the engineering and product team members to turn mockups into beautiful, consumer- grade experiences. Attend daily standups and host user interviews and research sessions.

   Domain Knowledge: Follow the market and the latest and greatest technologies being used to engage consumers and build great products. Understand user psychology, design principles, and modality options. Know the relevant libraries and frameworks and be able to differentiate ‘hype’ from ‘game changer.’

   Product Design: Understand a user’s workflow and mental model and how they will interact with a product; provide thought leadership on user interface and build high fidelity mockups.

   Product Development: Build mobile-first web and native applications by providing clickable mockups, and HTML/CSS/Javascript UI screens. Be able to provide estimates and deliver high-quality output on-time and in-budget.

 

CANDIDATE QUALIFICATIONS

 

Design Professional: We are looking for a design minded product leader and user advocate with 3 to 8 years of experience performing user research and interviews, and building interfaces for web and mobile applications. We want someone with consumer experience where real customers and external users used the products you designed, and those products then scaled up in terms of volume of transactions, interactions, features, etc. A Design or equivalent college degree is required.

 

Product Acumen: Strong foundational product design skills that demonstrated ability to collaborate, and be curious to understand what consumer users need as patients in healthcare.  Know how to work in agile software development life cycles and break down projects into stories for engineering. At a minimum, the ideal candidate will exhibit the majority of the following competencies:

 

  User Research, User Surveys, and live user activity event analysis

  Collaboration with Marketing, Product, and Engineering teams

  User Interface prototyping and high fidelity mockups

  Persona Development

  User Journey Mapping

  Visual communications, branding, and theming

  Interactive design

  Agile Development Methodologies, Scrums, Sprints, and Stories

  Technical knowledge and writing of HTML, CSS, and Javascript

  SQL query analysis a plus for data analytics

  Consumer onboarding and funnel optimization a plus

  Healthcare experience a plus

 

Entrepreneurial Heritage: Entrepreneurial spirit and desire to quickly develop product concepts, with a focus on continuous improvement and long-term career goals to be part of a startup-like company focused on dramatically improving US healthcare

 

DESIRED BEHAVIORS

 

   Customer-Focused: Put yourself in the shoes of the customer, a patient needing help. Build the system you would want for you or your family during a time of need.

   Pathfinder: Nothing beats a relentless desire to innovate despite all obstacles. Hustle and find a way.

   Curiosity: Never stop learning. Challenge ideas and look at the data. “The capacity to learn is a gift.  The ability to learn is a skill.  The willingness to learn is a choice.” - Brian Herbert

   Opinionated: Bring innovative ideas to the table. Don’t be afraid to be wrong, and know how to have a professional, best-ideas-win debate. Collaborate and work together to refine.

   Passion: Empathy with a bias for action to make an impact on healthcare. Love what you do.

   High Standards: Iterate. Do not settle; great products are made in the last 10% of polish. We are building consumer grade experiences for people in need of healing, and they deserve the best.

   Ownership: Demonstrate follow-through on whatever you do. Take on any task necessary to help.
