Job Description
CVS Health is on a mission to transform healthcare. With a shared purpose to help people on their path to better health, we are building new ways to care for our communities, leveraging our brick and mortar footprint of 10,000 stores. At the heart of this strategy lies the privileged relationships between our colleagues and our customers. As we seek to simplify a complex healthcare system for the patients we serve, while providing meaningful work for 180,000+ store colleagues, a design-thinking approach becomes increasingly critical. The Retail Operations - Experience Designer is an essential member of the Customer & Colleague Experience Team, responsible for influencing the creation of the tools, systems, and processes our colleagues use to care for customers in our stores every day. This person will work to create shared healthcare experiences that are as impactful for the provider as for the patient.

The Experience Designer is a critical member of the Retail Operations team, connecting the dots between customer insights, colleague feedback, operational workflow, and clinical patient care, to inform decisions about pharmacy layout and design, in-store technology interfaces, new program rollouts, and other aspects of the in-store experience (pharmacy drop-off, pick-up, counseling, etc.). This person takes a consultative approach, leveraging various forms of visual media (sketches, photographs, journey maps, etc.) to convey a clear vision and influence the work of disparate teams across the Retail business. This person will be a tireless champion of the user experience, ensuring that the individual operational tactics we pursue are in service of our higher goal: to build unparalleled connections between our colleagues and customers.

The ideal candidate brings a multi-disciplinary, human-centered approach to crafting experiences in the retail, healthcare, entertainment, or other relevant industry. A “maker” by nature, this person uses their craft to solve real, human problems, and welcomes the introduction of constraints as a support to the creative process. Basic business acumen, exhibited as fluency with the practical requirements in scaling operational change, will be necessary for success. In partnership with the team, this person will need to anticipate challenges, identify and assess trade-offs, and openly engage team members, leaders, and cross-functional partners to address complications. Excellent communication skills—written, spoken, and visual—will be required for the successful presentation of a clear and compelling vision to executive-level audiences.

Key Competencies Include:
- Strong fluency in user research, design thinking, and visual communication
- Ability to create definition and structure within ambiguous and uncertain settings
- Experience bringing concepts from ideation through iterative prototyping, toward scale
- Ability to learn on the fly, driven by an innate curiosity and sense of possibility
- Comfort working with a closely-knit team, as well as a broader cast of cross-functional stakeholders
- High level of independent judgment and initiative
- Strong organizational and project management skills; ability to set and meet milestones and budget requirements
- Ability to communicate and influence at all levels of the organization

Required Qualifications
- 5+ years of work experience in a business environment
- 2+ years of work experience in a consulting or other project-driven environment, applying systems-thinking to break down and address complex problems
- 2+ years of work experience applying user-centered design methods and techniques
- A commitment to our purpose of helping people on their path to better health

Preferred Qualifications
- Portfolio of work demonstrating visual storytelling and/or interaction design skills

- Bachelor's degree in Design or other related discipline, or equivalent work experience
- MBA or advanced training in relevant discipline preferred
