Senior Product Designer

Full-Time London, UK Closes: 2021-03-26

Lantum is on a mission to transform how healthcare workers connect with the healthcare systems they work within. So far we’ve supported over 2,000 healthcare organisations and saved over £30 million for the NHS. And that’s just the start.

Our users are extraordinary people. We want to use empathetic design and progressive technology to provide them with a product that goes some way to matching the extraordinary work they do, that’s featured so prominently over the last year. We’re proud to have played a pivotal role in supporting the NHS throughout the pandemic and have helped workforces across the UK to mobilize and schedule hundreds of thousands of vaccinations through our product.

As we look to launch to interesting new market segments and serve evolving models of healthcare distribution, we’re looking for a seasoned product designer to join us. We want to continue building out a market leading platform that brings the ease of the best consumer experiences to the world of SaaS health tech. We’re hoping that might be you.

Role purpose

The Senior Product Designer will be a leader in our cross-functional Engineering, Product and Design (EPD) team, collaborating at every stage of product feature development.

We’re looking for someone who is comfortable in discovery mode and can identify the right processes to progress outstanding product features. We focus on creating solutions fast so we can test, learn and iterate. The design balance is currently more heavily weighted to solving user needs with structural UX work, using our design system, with visual depth progressing in the background. You’ll be one of two product designers in Lantum, so there’s opportunity to work fast and strongly influence how the product and team evolves.

You’ll develop a deep understanding of the struggles that healthcare workers and management teams contend with on a daily basis. Whether that’s scheduling a small army of staff quickly and fairly, managing communications between those rota managers and workers, navigating a host of rules and regulations, or arranging the really practical stuff like taking annual leave. There’s no shortage of problems to fall in love with and solve.

Our Values

  • Care a lot – Doing the right thing is not optional (even when no one is watching). We care a lot about each other, our users, the NHS, outcomes. We hold each other to the highest standards and earn our reputation every day.
  • See it thru – Excellence isn’t a skill, it’s a habit – an endless pursuit of excellence. We take pride in planning and execution of all types of work – doing the big stuff as well as the usual, unspectacular things spectacularly well, day in, day out.
  • Think around corners – We are an innovator in our industry. Both big and small ideas, are our competitive advantage. All of us share a responsibility to challenge the status quo, think out of the box, think creatively, solve problems, and anticipate bumps.
