Who is Nye?
Nye is an early stage, VC-backed healthtech company based in the Oxford Foundry and Edinburgh. We are re-imagining the research layer in healthcare. Our mission is to accelerate research and medical progress by working with citizens to help them find ways to increase the quality and quantity of their lives. We were also proud to provide the telemedicine that powered multiple clinical trials during the pandemic (including Oxford University’s COVID vaccine trial).
It’s a great time to join as we’re looking to build the foundations for the next stage of our journey.
We’re looking for a talented UX/UI Designer to join us on that journey – to build, learn and grow with us as we deliver our mission to the citizen with our web and mobile applications.
The role is based in Edinburgh and you’ll be located close enough such that you could potentially visit our city-centre office a few times a week.
