Lead Product Designer

We are looking for Lead Product Designers who can lead our team of versatile designers while working on products that go out to millions of users every day. 

Full-time · Bangalore

It’s a fine morning: perfect for working on some world-changing ideas. After breakfast and coffee, you sign in to work. First, you catch up with your team, a cross-functional bunch of designers and engineers who love what they do (just like you!). Then, it’s down to business.

You start with the first client, a healthcare app used in over 6,000 facilities of all sizes in India, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh. You’re leading the team through a co-creation exercise with healthcare workers who have used the app for over a year. You and your team are invested in keeping the real users of the app—doctors and nurses—involved in the decision-making process. With them, you shape the app that will save thousands of lives every year.

After a leisurely lunch, you sit down for a series of collaborative discussions with the organisation founders. You advocate for yours and your team’s work at the high-stakes table. You contribute to systems and practices that drive outcomes.

With every discussion and task, you evolve as a product designer at one of the leading product consultancies in India. You understand that complex technology, when simplified and made ubiquitously accessible, finds its own ways to change the world.
