Who we are
Our vision is a world where every person is capable of achieving their health goals.
Capable Health is a purpose-built developer platform to build best-in-class consumer health apps. You can think of us as the API middleware powering modern healthcare experiences that delight patients and providers alike.
Based on our experience building high-growth healthcare products, we’ve learned firsthand how regulatory compliance makes it difficult to build quality patient-centered services, and how vendors that will work with personal health information are limited and often too expensive. At Capable Health, we’re building HIPAA-compliant APIs that accelerate patient-facing products while improving the quality of life for engineering and product teams.
We’re founded by the former CTO of Candid (Series B orthodontics startup in NYC) and backed by AlleyCorp which founded companies like MongoDB (NASDAQ: MDB), Business Insider, Gilt Groupe, Zola, Nomad Health, and more.
We are looking for an experienced product designer to lead design across our platform of tools for developers, practitioners, and patients.
You’ll lead continuous discovery practices to deeply empathize with our customers (digital health startups) and their end-users (practitioners, coaches, patients, members). You’ll report to the Head of Product.
Everyone joining at this stage will wear multiple hats, work across the product surface, and will have equity in the business.
What you’ll do
Lead design through the entire lifecycle from research to implementation.
Contribute to product strategy by deeply understanding our customers’ needs and the problems they are solving.
Partner with our engineering and product teams to improve the lives of developers, practitioners, and patients.
Build user flows and wireframes.
Translate UX into UI and work with engineers to get it built.
Lead design sprints to rapidly explore and validate new ideas.
Build interactive prototypes and test them with users.
Establish a design library and design system.
Jump into startup life by rolling up your sleeves and pitching in.
What you’ll need
5+ years of relevant design experience at a product-driven company.
Be a strong, detail-oriented designer who can jump in and lead design with a fair bit of autonomy.
Empathy for the humans who are seeking to improve their health or improve the health of others.
Ability to take complex domains and make them easy to understand.
Enthusiasm for user research and discovery.
Eagerness to move and iterate quickly.
Experience in health or wellness is helpful but is not required.
