Design Lead – Framework – New York, NY

We are a subscription-based, B2B2C business (, so this role requires deep empathy with both our customers (experts in the Health and Wellness space with large audiences) and their customers (individuals looking for structured guidance from experts and commiseration from peers while facing difficult life transitions such as pregnancy, sobriety, grief, etc.). As Design Lead, you will be tasked with driving every aspect of the product design processes as part of a cross-functional product team. This involves owning the entire design process starting with understanding the problem through to execution including user research, wireframes, prototypes, and detailed visual designs for implementation.
