Who we are:
At Ciitizen, we have a singular mission: to improve the lives of the 350 million+ people suffering from rare and complex conditions. We empower patients with seamless access and control over their health data that they can share across our multi-sided platform with caregivers, providers and researchers to illuminate better treatment and support options, while bringing therapies to patients faster. We support thousands of patients, work with a rapidly growing network of patient advocacy organizations, and innovate with leading biopharma organizations to accelerate therapies, always ensuring patients remain at the center.
We are a team of patients, caregivers, researchers and builders who have had first-hand experience across the spectrum of rare disease. Led by a seasoned founding team with a history of successful exits in healthcare and consumer startups, and supported by top-tier investors, we are a close-knit, mission-driven group seeking exceptional talents to join us.
The Lead Product Designer will be a key driver in informing all products across the company. You will help innovate new products, lead end-to-end product and design work, and collaborate closely with engineering and business colleagues. You will help increase product velocity, lead rapid iterations through prototyping and research, and work closely with your technical colleagues to constantly ship new products. You will collaborate with the leadership team, engineering leads, subject matter experts, and most of all, our users, to design end to end products that are intuitive, frictionless and world class. The products you will help build will create better experiences for our patients, patient advocacy partners, researchers and internal users. Your work will span across intuitive consumer products and AI-driven data products. This is a hybrid role based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
