Peek CEO, Dr. Andrew Bastawrous:

The Role
Peek Vision is seeking a high-calibre designer to lead our product design capability.  As our first product designer, you will be responsible for establishing a design capability within the Product team as well as working alongside the existing team to scale and grow our product development function as a whole.

You will be instrumental in helping us scale to meet needs of eye care providers across The Global South by tackling a number of complex design challenges.  A key objective for the first 12 months of the role will be improving the ability of customers of our ‘Peek for School and Community Eye Health Programmes’ product to self-serve through our ‘Peek Admin’ web application when it comes to configuring our software to meet their individual eye care programme needs.

Peek’s staff are distributed internationally around the globe and our customers and software users operate and deliver programmes in multiple countries. Travel to programmes using Peek in different countries will be part of the role (in line with Peek’s Travel Safety Policy). Peek’s culture enables a self managed team structure. This provides a high level of ownership and accountability within each role, and enables effective and frequent collaboration between team members and across teams.

Responsibilities and Attributes

The 5 key responsibilities of the role are:

  • Owning and defining the design process; from user research to wireframing, prototyping and final designs.
  • Crafting accessible, effective, intuitive experiences for a wide variety of design challenges.
  • Being responsible for all design artefacts, from insights and mapping to UI, eventually maintaining a library of key learnings, flows and interaction patterns
  • Identifying research questions and finding the best way to answer them, identifying the best research methodologies to understand our end users and their product needs.
  • Working to understand the what, why and how of a problem to ensure we’re shipping the right thing and anchor functionality in user goals, whether in the form of user needs / stories / JTBD  / etc.

The 5 key attributes we have identified for the role are:

  • Demonstrable knowledge of discovery techniques employing cross-disciplinary collaboration; shaping solutions and shipping changes that are measurably valuable.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of software product design in Agile environments, including familiarity with the delivery lifecycle and Agile process improvement.
  • Proven experience of shipping incremental improvements involving rethinking and validating solutions for new and better experiences.
  • Facilitation skills, including demonstrable experience of engaging colleagues less familiar with a user-centred approach, building on their knowledge and joining dots between teams to grow internal understanding of our products and bring value to our users.
  • Proven experience of pragmatism when it comes to the trade-offs involved in creating the best possible experience within a given scope of change and the ability to communicate the rationale behind these decisions to collective and individual decision makers, within the context of a wider organisational mission.

About Peek
1.1 billion people worldwide have preventable or curable vision loss, including 43 million who are blind. And rates are rising. Vision loss can have devastating effects on education, social status, and livelihoods. Simple, cost-effective treatments exist, like cataract operations or glasses. Further, the burden of most eye conditions is not borne equally. The majority of cases are in Africa and Asia, where eye care services are limited and people travel long distances to reach hospitals.

Peek Vision is a social enterprise that powers eye health programme providers to strengthen systems and service delivery with a software and data intelligence platform.

We are dynamic, impact-driven and award-winning. Our solutions for school & community eye health providers include:

  • Population-level eye health surveys
  • Programme design
  • Software
  • Data insights

For a brief introduction explaining how Peek powers school and community eye health programme providers to make unmet eye health needs visible, watch this Introducing Peek Vision video.

Peek Capture is a web-based Android app, with our award-winning Peek Acuity integrated, that allows non-specialists – such as teachers and community health workers – to conduct vision screening and eye health surveys in homes, communities and schools and connects along the service pathway.

Peek Admin is a web platform that displays the real-time data entered in Capture, allowing healthcare providers to understand where the need is greatest and how to improve services.

They are used to power our two main offers:

Peek for School and Community Eye Health Programmes

We use Peek Capture to help eye health providers reach communities and join up local services, while data from Peek Admin helps ensure those who need treatment are reached. We offer our public health expertise to adapt the solutions to local needs and help partners analyse the data for iterative improvement.

Peek for RAAB7

RAAB (Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness) is a rapid survey methodology developed at ICEH (International Centre for Eye Health) to identify the prevalence of eye health issues in a given population. Identifying population need is the first step to advocating for and designing impactful programmes.
