User Experience Designer

Remote

Summary

Wavepaths delivers experience as medicine - we are transforming mental health care through life-changing experiences with music at scale.

Our generative music technology integrates psychedelic science, machine learning, music theory and experience design to facilitate experiences that improve mental health and well-being. We provide technology solutions to both care seekers and care providers. 

Design and user experience (UX) are at the forefront of everything we do. The job of an User Experience Designer is to envision how therapists and clients experience our products and bring that vision to life. We’re now looking for a User Experience designer to join our team full time or part time (minimal 2-3 days / week). You will own both our therapist platform design and consumer web and mobile apps flows and designs.

About You

The right person for this role will be a highly internally motivated individual contributor, with strong experience designing user experiences, and can hold their own in visual design.

Being an integral part of a small startup, it is also important that you have the ability to prioritize and focus and communicate to both technical and non-technical audiences. Most of all, you’re interested in using your design capabilities to make a foundational contribution to our mission, realizing a new category of well-being products and services that help people reconnect with their innate capacities to heal. The users we support are therapists that treat clients in their most vulnerable state, and the design needs to reflect that. The challenge here is to design at-a-glance information about the musical attributes, and having controls available to change them, while still retaining clarity and simplicity.

You are someone who is excited to work among a diverse, expert team leading the forefront of generative, adaptive audio-visual systems, and work with world-class artists and musicians from Jon Hopkins, Robert Rich, Superstition, Greg Haines among others. You understand the value of art and design in being able to express key concepts.

We offer

Working with Wavepaths will offer you the autonomy to own and help set the direction of our product with the other designers, the engineering team and directly with the founders. Our team is fully remote, with a likely home base in London (once Covid allows for this again).

  • Equity options available for a key design team member, and the potential to come on board full-time as the design lead in the future, should you want to grow into that role

  • Working among a diverse, expert team leading the forefront of generative, adaptive audio-visual systems for psychedelic therapy

  • Proposing key branding and design guidelines for our products and company

  • The opportunity to work with exclusive contributions from world class artists and musicians such as Jon Hopkins, Greg Haines, Robert Rich among others, with more high profile partnerships to come

  • Opportunity to make a foundational contribution to our mission, realizing a new category of well-being products and services that help people reconnect with their innate capacities to heal

  • Directly involved in psychedelic therapy studies in collaboration with our partners at Johns Hopkins, Imperial, McGill and other places, and working with some of the leading therapists in the field

  • Flexible remote working

  • Designing Music Personalization flows for our patient and consumer wellness products
