You will be part of a small team that emphasizes the importance of communication and collaboration.

  • Create wireframes, user journey maps, and other visuals to support learnings and areas of opportunity.
  • Collaborate with UI/UX Designers to develop product enhancements based on learnings.
  • Perform other related duties as required.

What Makes You an Ideal Candidate

  • Proven experience in the integration of consumer research into a product’s design
  • Analytical and strategic-minded
  • Excellent written and in-person communication skills
  • Demonstrated creative problem solving and critical thinking abilities
  • Vibrantly autonomous and efficiently self-managed while comfortable with cross-discipline collaboration (but never afraid to ask for guidance or help from peers!)
  • Captivating and self-assured presentation skills
  • Strong understanding of technology
  • Curiosity and open-mindedness to our frontier, science-lead efforts in the psychedelics space
  • Knowledge/experience in the psychedelics space is preferred
