Product Experience & Design Specialist 

Projects the candidate will be working on:

Product Experience and Design (PXD) requires a unique blend of real-world experience and theory, entrepreneurial zeal, and elite production and execution.

Working as PXD Specialist means youll be part of a team of highly skilled individuals to tackle all aspects of the design process from user research to physical prototyping to telling the project story to the client. You will work as a member of a multi-disciplinary engineering team to create and deliver market leading offerings for clients across the continuum of care.

As a Specialist of Product Experience & Design, you will be helping people live healthier lives when you bring your expertise, passion, energy, focus and all-in approach to work every day. This is the place where you can do your life's best work.

IDEAL candidate background: We need candidates with digital UI production experience. Mobile, desktop/responsive, working with design systems and component creation. Healthcare experience is nice, but not a must-have. Ideally their portfolio and experience includes real-world work examples. I dont want all school projects and personal exploration projects. They need at least some experience working for real clients.

What experience will set candidates apart from one another? Prototyping and front-end dev experience would set them apart from candidates without that ability/experience.
