Our mission at Alto is to fulfill medicine’s true purpose—to improve quality of life—for everyone who needs it. As a Lead Product Designer, you’ll work closely with your product manager and engineering lead to take ownership of solving our largest product challenges and be involved in the end-to-end development process, from early research and visioning, to polished pixels, quality assurance, and launch.
You are a generalist who owns projects from end-to-end, enjoys problem-solving, and values the real-world impact your work makes on our patients. We always put the patient experience first, and you do too. You are scrappy and resourceful, unafraid to dive into an unknown project but humble enough to make mistakes and iterate. You collaborate well cross-functionally, with both technical and non-technical roles and have strong communication skills to convey your ideas.You thrive on speed and wearing many hats, and you enjoy working on different parts of design (internal tools, B2C, B2B, brand).

You’ll shadow our Pharmacy Operations, Patient Care, and Fulfillment Teams to understand Alto from every perspective, and you’ll even speak to real patients on a support call. By your 2nd month, you will contribute to the planning, scoping, and design of a larger project. By your 3rd month, you’ll possess the confidence and context to own and ship a large project or feature and never stop learning.
