Watertown, Massachusetts

Join us as we work to create a thriving ecosystem that delivers accessible, high-quality, and sustainable healthcare for all.

We are looking for a Senior UX Designer to thoughtfully contribute to our award-winning, flagship clinical practice revenue cycle management product.

In this role, you will help lead the UX portion of our product development process on a multi-disciplinary agile R&D team consisting of product managers, developers, data analytics specialists, and service operations agents - not to mention our customers - to define, design and test workflows that empower medical practice staff to efficiently and effectively manage the business of patient care while keeping the needs of the patient front and center.

We're working to turn a complex and sometimes cumbersome set of processes into a more unified, intuitive, satisfying, and empowering experience for our users. As a member of this product team, you will work to reimagine and optimize the revenue cycle and front desk experience.

As a successful candidate, you will be a champion for our users and will embrace the challenge of solving complex problems that present the greatest opportunities to ease the burden on healthcare workers by removing obstacles and creating better paths. You will develop a clear point of view about UX decisions and tradeoffs in collaboration with product and engineering leads. You will function well both independently - making well-informed design decisions on your own - and in collaboration with cross-functional partners in product, engineering, and other disciplines.

You have an eye for design, and the ability to spot small details that others might miss. You love finding ways to drive incremental but significant improvements that keep us moving towards a greater long-term vision. You bring curiosity, empathy, and a sense of humor to everything you do.
