Last updated 5 days ago
Location:Redmond, Washington
Job Type:Full Time

For every hour doctors spend with their patients, they spend two hours on process and clerical tasks. When they do meet with patients, they spend most of the time glued to their computer. We are EmpowerMD, a mission focused product team in Microsoft Healthcare that’s building ambient intelligence for the clinic. Our technology will let clinicians focus on what they do best: taking care of their patients.

On our team you will design products that are simple, intuitive, accessible, and quite simply, magical! You will collaborate with a world-class team of engineers, researchers, product managers and clinicians throughout the design process. You will create user flows, wireframes, build user interface mockups and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas. You will anticipate what clinicians need and ensure that the final product surprises and delights them!

Please include URLs for an online portfolio demonstrating your visual design skills, design process, UX flows and interaction patterns, in addition to a resume. Submissions without a portfolio included will not be considered.
