Product Designer (Pre-Member Experience)

Weight Watchers is an international leader in healthy lifestyle change. Our mission is to “inspire and guide the healthier choices that transform lives.” We’re leveraging technology and leading the way in the wellness arena with a new emphasis on analytics, mobility, and digital solutions to help our members reach their goals. Our “Beyond The Scale” program is a holistic approach to a healthier, happier life that includes weight management. It’s an exciting time to join our team!

About the role & the team

We are looking for Product Designer to improve our Pre-Member experience.

Our Product Design team is a close-knit group of 20+ practitioners, each focused on UX design, visual design or experience research. The team is distributed between our offices in New York City and San Francisco.

We’re user-focused, believe deeply in user-centered innovation, and work in highly collaborative crews that include design-oriented engineers and product managers, in addition to dedicated resources from the Product Design team.

Our team is remarkably talented and growing fast, so this is an exciting time to join Weight Watchers. The Health & Wellness space is growing exponentially and as a designer here, your work will have an immediate meaningful impact on the lives of our members.

About the Work

You’ll work to understand the behaviors, motivations and goals associated with turning non-members into members. Applying this insight, you’ll deliver innovative designs that demonstrate how our award-winning program helps millions of people lead more healthy, active and fulfilling lives.

Your ultimate goal will be to improve our acquisition and sign-up-related KPIs, but you’ll also work to tailor the pre-member experience to the different kinds of prospects and to translate the questions that arise from our ongoing research program into testable solutions.
