Alta Flora is a business with a mission to improve health and wellbeing through technology enabled solutions.
The number of patients in Europe receiving cannabis based medicines is growing rapidly from a historical position of low usage within healthcare. However, there is a lack of good quality research around dosing, preparation and side-effects. At Alta Flora, we are creating a platform to support patients through this journey and to provide information to doctors and patients - where currently none exists.
We have an office in London (Kings Cross area) and a small office in Lisbon. As a remote-worker friendly business, we have a few team members in other European countries. We are committed to being an inclusive employer, free from bias and offer a number of flexible working arrangements - and are also happy to consider new ideas.
Our current team has an average of 10 years of experience across a diverse range of industries; technology, science, the legal cannabis industry, law, and consulting. We aim to create an open and collaborative working environment and encourage our team to maintain a balance in their individual lifestyles.
Who are we looking for?
We're looking for an experienced UX+UI designer to take on the permanent role as design lead at Alta Flora. You will have overall responsibility for user experience, visual design, and design process within the product and engineering team.
The design lead role will initially involve creating the user experience and interface for our mobile app, Eva. We are looking for someone who feels user experience design is their strength - but is also comfortable with wireframing and creating high fidelity designs. Over time you may need some support in the role and you will, therefore, have discretion over how to and when to build a team that reflects your sensitivity to our users’ needs and our team’s culture of inclusivity.
As design lead you will be working closely with a product manager, software engineers and our VP of engineering. The product and engineering team is supported by some very knowledgeable (and friendly) analysts providing legal and business advice. You would also be interacting with the wider team to help promote a healthy design culture and align the business strategy with your vision for the product.
As a small team, we have a flexible approach to product process (agile principles, project management tools, etc) and will value your experience in this area.
