Product Design Intern (Summer 2019)

| Greater NYC Area

We are looking for a product design intern who is excited to work collaboratively to solve one of the hardest challenges of our time; drastically improving the ways in which cancer care is delivered. You will have the opportunity to work closely with oncologists, nurses, practice administrators, research coordinators, data scientists, engineers, and product managers in a flexible environment, learn about the intricacies of the healthcare system, and deliver well-designed solutions that not only solve problems, but have the chance to change the way design is applied to healthcare product and processes.

Responsibilities:

  • Explore design solutions that solve a problem, with a particular emphasis on accessibility and workflow-based interaction design
  • Generate hypotheses and work with team members to validate product and design decisions, using both qualitative and quantitative user research methods
  • Participate in design critiques with cross-functional stakeholders to iterate on and refine solutions
  • Learn new design techniques and ultimately gain an understanding of designing in a healthcare environment

Requirements:

  • You are graduating between December 2019 and June 2020 with a Bachelors or Masters degree. You have taken design-related courses and/or have alternative professional design experience (e.g. internships)
  • You have a passion for designing solutions that have the potential to truly impact cancer care delivery
  • You are able to concisely explain design problems and the rationale behind your proposed solutions
  • You are a quick learner and are excited to pick up new design techniques
  • You are familiar with user-centered design practices and how best to apply them
  • You have familiarity with user research techniques

Bonus points:

  • Experience working with design software (e.g. Sketch) and prototyping tools (e.g. InVision)
  • Technical skills around HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

Abhishek

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
