Part-time Designer or Design Intern

Tidepool is changing the world for people living with Type 1 diabetes. Design and user experience is at the core everything we do: we believe that beautiful, intuitive, actionable user-centered design is what empowers people living with T1D.

Primary responsibilities:

  • You’ll be an integral part of the Tidepool team collaborating closely on current and future web and mobile applications.
  • Conducting in-person interviews and user tests, to determine the functionality and experiences we need delight and empower our users.
  • Defining and iterating upon interaction models, user task flows, and UI specifications.
  • Working closely with our product and front-end engineering teams we will constantly experiment, iterate on, and improve Tidepool’s products.
  • Communicating scenarios, end-to-end experiences, interaction models, and designs to all internal and external stakeholders.
  • Collaborating closely with our product, community manager, design and engineering teams to iterate upon both concept prototypes and production software.
  • Contributing to our outbound marketing presence through your words and designs.

The ideal candidate has:

  • A BA/BS or higher in design, user experience or human-computer interaction.
  • 3 or more years industry experience, delivering inspiring web and mobile user experiences for consumers
  • Expertise with UX software such as Sketch, InVision, Balsamiq and Framer. The ability to craft HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript is a big plus.
  • Experience in UX design best practices to design solutions, including a deep understanding of mobile and responsive web design.
  • A solid grasp of user-centered design and testing methodologies, including usability and accessibility.
  • You’re scrappy, self driven, and have a point of view and desire to continue learning new ways to express yourself and your ideas.
  • Knowledge or experience with the unique challenges of Type 1 diabetes is a plus, but open eyes and ears and a strong empathic gene will also do just fine.

This is a part-time job that can vary from 10-40 hours per week. The Tidepool team is highly distributed, so most of your interaction with us will be online through Slack and Google Hangouts.

Our design team is small but we move quickly and have big impact. If you are interested in being part of a team that is passionate about disrupting the vertical and closed world of medical data and devices with delightful interactions, we would love to talk.

About Working at Tidepool

We’re a small, focused team on a mission. We are inclusive, collaborative and driven. In addition to working with great people on a great project, we also offer for full-time U.S. employees:

  • A really amazing health benefits plan with $0 deductible. (We have to have a great plan: most of us have a personal connection to T1D.)
  • Flexible Spending Account matching for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
  • A 401k plan.

We’re  supportive of remote work – over half of our team works remotely from home, some internationally. We also have a great office at 450 Townsend in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco. And we have a flexible vacation policy. We do all of this because this is not just a job. We support the whole person and take the rest of life into account.  We want the happiest and healthiest you.

Recruiters: Thanks in advance for your offer to help us find great people. If you can help us pro bono, that would be awesome! But we’re a tiny non-profit and can’t afford to pay placement fees right now.
