Healthcare needs good data. At PicnicHealth, we are building the world’s highest quality medical datasets - fueling cutting edge research while giving patients control of their health record. These comprehensive, patient-centric, real-world datasets produce unique insights - across multiple therapeutic areas - not available from any other source.  We do this by working directly with patients and leveraging state of the art machine learning techniques to transform their messy medical records into structured, accurate, and useful data. Patients then access their data through an easy-to-use, secure online dashboard and choose to participate in, and benefit from, research on their condition along with other PicnicHealth users. 

To date, we’ve helped tens of thousands of patients, partnered with some of the world’s largest life science companies (including 10 of the Top 30), and raised more than $35M including from Felicis Ventures, Amplify Partners, and Y Combinator. 

And we are just getting started! If you are looking to join an award winning, mission-driven, motivated team that is making a real impact across millions of people’s lives, PicnicHealth might just be the place for you. 

The Opportunity

We are looking for a user-centric Product Designer who is passionate about shaping the product experience in support of our ambitious mission of bringing good data to healthcare. 

In this role, you will drive discovery, research, and ideation for our medical records platform, which is at the core of PicnicHealth and allows us to ingest messy medical records and convert them into clean, structured, useful data. You will have an outsized influence designing and empowering a wide range of users, by asking questions, digging deeper into problems, and creating simple designs for a highly complex system. You will have the opportunity to invent a one-of-a-kind experience and envision how AI can be effectively leveraged to drive productivity and quality of our clinical data abstraction. You will also drive the product roadmap in collaboration with product, engineering, and other cross-functional stakeholders.

Most importantly, you will be working in an environment where your ownership scales with your ambition and your team carves out space to support your growth at PicnicHealth (and beyond!).

As a Product Designer, you will be responsible for:

  • Designing user flows, experiences, and new product features that make labeling applications more intuitive and powerful;
  • Partnering with a stellar team of Engineers and PMs to solve product challenges. As the design leader of your vertical, advocating for the voice of the user and prioritizing your work given high amounts of ambiguity.
  • Evolving the company-wide design system to provide a high quality experience and coordinating with designers/PMs on other product areas to create a more cohesive vision for your vertical.
  • Helping continue to build a world-class design team, by helping attract, interview, and onboard your future team members during this exciting time of growth.
  • Going beyond the pixels. At PicnicHealth, designers are key contributors on company strategy, product direction, and anything else you're interested in.

You are a strong candidate if you have:

  • Demonstrated history of taking initiative, leading an end to end design process, and getting things done at the appropriate level of polish against tight timelines.
  • An impressive portfolio that highlights your diverse design skill set, and a deep understanding for human-centered design practice.
  • Ability to proactively identify constraints and collaborate cross-functionally to come up with and implement creative solutions. 
  • Experience in designing complex pro-applications or internal tools. Unique viewpoints on design tools, mapping / labeling software, and graphics applications that add something new to the team.
  • Passion about improving the lives of patients and making a difference in improving healthcare outcomes.

We expect all team members to be motivated to be amazing in their roles and, ultimately, to move the PicnicHealth mission forward.

An Insider's view of PicnicHealth

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is casual, focused and energized. Its not uncommon to see an engineer napping on a couch while a VP is leading a meeting a few feet away. Our "water cooler" is the snack area and there's always someone to grab lunch with. Sometimes quiet, sometimes loud, there is always the buzz of collaboration and new ideas being shared across teams.


Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are focused on developing novel, transparent, ML-guided and clinically sound techniques for extracting entity-level data from medical records and synthesizing that data to the patient-level. And ensuring that all data are de-identified, regulatory grade and usable to rapidly derive a wide range of actionable clinical and commercial insights.

Dan Drozd

Head of Clinical Solutions

What are some things you learned at the company?

PicnicHealth provided a high level of autonomy which gave me a strong sense of ownership. I was able to move from a Product Designer to an interim manager role as we found someone who could lead our team since I really enjoyed IC work. In the past 2 years I have learned about the true meaning of leadership and what it takes to be a manager.


Product Designer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At PicnicHealth, we use quarterly OKRs to get aligned on the outcomes that are most important for moving the business forward. Then we give team members the space and ownership to solve some of the most complex problems in health data. I am amazed by the creative solutions our team members come up with when given the ownership and space to do so.



What are some social events your company does?

We have at least one Game Night and one Happy Hour every month! Since the team is relatively small, Trivia or JackBox games can get pretty competitive. It's awesome to be able to still have that engagement with teammates, even as we onboard people remotely. Monthly happy hours also help in keeping up to date on non work related topics!
