Here’s an opportunity for a talented designer to build something very real and very cutting edge: The hospital room of the future. Our client is breaking new ground in the area of patient experience, and it needs a nuts-and-bolts, roll-up-the-sleeves design type to join the five-person team that’s making this happen. Forget about snoozy little design tasks that never see much of an audience; land this gig and you’ll be playing a key role in how the rest of us experience hospital stays for years to come.
The Nitty Gritty
You’ll join forces with a product owner, a program manager, a clinical systems pro and a developer. Your role will consist in converting the vision to reality – taking those wireframes and figuring out how to make them blossom into usable products. When the rubber hits the road, what’s the smartest way to give patients control over the temperature in their rooms, the ability to open or close their window blinds, access to their medical records, connections to the outside world? Some of the software and hardware will already be in place, and you’ll face the design challenge of fulfilling the vision while working within those constraints. In other cases, you may have to build things from scratch. And all throughout, you’ll imbue your creation with a strong and compelling design sense and overarching aesthetic resulting in a highly useful and elegant set of solutions.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You’re a team player who has figured out over the years how to execute on a vision in a collaborative environment without undue friction, and in fact you would quickly assert that your best work has resulted from close cooperation with colleagues. Obviously, it would be great if you’ve already done interactive design work in a healthcare setting, but if not, you’ve at least put in serious time at an agency, perhaps building interactive experiences for museums or the like. Anyone seeking to impeach your technical experience would give up, dejected, because it can’t be done: You’re just too highly proficient in Sketch, In Design, Axure, Android app design, you name it. Finally, you are a rigorous, creative problem-solver who can size up a situation, assess the tools available, and make a smart plan for moving forward in the most effective and efficient way possible.
