UX Designer

My name is Benjamin and I am the Head of Product here at Medbelle. Our mission to build the first digital hospital and we want you to help us build it.

Healthcare is one of the least digitised and standardised industries, making it incredibly inefficient and often causing negative patient experiences.

We are reinventing healthcare to make it work as it should. Medbelle offers medical procedures whilst leveraging technology to make the process simple from start to finish. We are both a service and a technology business.

Backed by renowned international investors, we are helping an ever-growing number of patients and are therefore looking for passionate people who share our vision of affecting real change in healthcare.

A superior user experience lies at the heart of our business. Hence, we are looking for a creative candidate with an eagle eye for detail to join us in building our digital hospital.

User Experience is at the center of Medbelle

As a vertically integrated marketplace we interact with patients, surgeons and hospitals via our proprietary software tools - on mobile, tablet and desktop. Patient-facing, we are a mobile-first app.

We derive our value from orchestrating the whole value chain from discovery to information to consultation to treatment. As such, we see it as our mission to make every interaction along this journey functional, performant and delightful.

We iterate and move fast but also put an extraordinary focus on service quality, technological integrity and the happiness of our patients, partners and staff - as evidenced by our stellar reviews online.

We believe in building products that our users love. To enable that, we have a big and seasoned in-house engineering team and work with lean and agile software development methodologies.

As we grow and expand our offering, we are looking for a passionate professional to join our agile team as a UX Designer.

What you will do:

  • You are defining our product with your ideas and have full ownership over optimizing our UX (via UI and otherwise) across our three existing software products and beyond
  • You are planning and creating user experiences which are intuitive and delightful but also functional and performant
  • You are generating user stories, personas, user journeys and other insights via UX research and experiments, in close collaboration with our product managers
  • You are translating user stories into wireframes, flowcharts, mockups and prototypes as part of our agile team and in close collaboration with our software engineers
  • You are an integral part of our agile team and involved in our two week sprints, but also independently own projects to make our UX industry-leading

What you bring to the table:

  • You have experience in design / UI / UX and an existing portfolio to show for it. This experience can be work- or education-based.
  • You have experience with prototyping and designing for the web, especially mobile-first
  • You have an ability to advocate for evidence-based design that balances user needs with business objectives
  • You are proficient in prototyping and UX methodologies
  • You are proficient in English (spoken & written)
  • Bonus points if you have skills or experience in any of the following: HTML, CSS, Material Design, Healthcare, agile development, startups or other fast-moving organizations.

What we offer you:

  • This is an opportunity to become part of one of Berlin’s most successful startups and grow with the company
  • When you’re doing a great job, you will always have the opportunity to take on more responsibility and grow professionally and personally
  • This job will give you a high amount of creative freedom and ownership and provide you with an opportunity to significantly shape our core products
  • You will work on real and challenging problems with smart people who care
  • We do stuff together - Join the Medbelle family if you love Friday beers, team dinners and impeccable office banter
  • And of course the most important stuff. A constant supply of coffee, fruits and a weekly brunch powers you while you reinvent global healthcare. Oh, and we have English tea, lots of English tea.
  • A competitive salary

What the crew is like & why I love working here…

By uniting the brightest minds in the industry with an insatiable passion for building the best possible patient experience, we have created a big family of healthcare professionals, engineers, and entrepreneurs that are striving towards bringing healthcare to the twenty-first century. We're a small and truly international team with a strong focus on numbers and growth, but also love to do fun stuff and spend time together outside the office. As a typical Berlin startup, this comes with the typical perks and benefits: free coffee & British tea (!), fruits, an amazing loft office in Kreuzberg, Friday meme-meetings and lots of team events.

We move quickly. If you are a great match, we can cover the initial phone interview, on-site interviews and chat with the founder in one week. I look forward to hearing from you!

Benjamin (Head of Product)
