Product Designer

⚡️ About Us

The working world has fundamentally shifted. Never before have we seen such an upheaval to business norms; employee stress has been thrown into the spotlight and businesses around the world are struggling to respond.
Walking on Earth is solving this problem; through a precision health platform for workplace stress. Our platform creates individual health plans using data from our WONE index and provides access to 100s of live and on demand content on neuroscience, nutrition, movement, mindfulness and sleep.
Historically, we've worked with large, high performing businesses and have had a significant impact on the health of their teams with 30% average company engagement rates and 70% of employees experiencing an increase in Index scores by an average of 30 percentage points.
We give teams the tools they need to proactively address employee health, before they reach a point of crisis.
We have an experienced leadership team ex. Google, Treatwell, Deliveroo, BenevolentAI and are VC backed with word class investors & advisors incl. Arianna Huffington & Brent Hoberman. We live and breathe by example to create a truly authentic team culture, with health at its core.

🚀 What we need

We are hiring a Product Designer to help people regulate their stress. This is an opportunity to take ownership of our end to end design process, delivering a world-class user experience through beautiful design across our web & mobile apps.
You are an effective communicator who is energised by cross functional collaboration. You’ll be motivated to advance our customer’s goals, WONE’s business objectives and our mission by drawing insights from end users, and translating them into creative strategies and execution plans that will solve pain points and bring measurable benefits and joy to our users and customers.
You’ll be able to articulate the potential impact, requirements, investment and risks associated with your plans to product managers, engineers, customer success colleagues and leadership. When it comes to execution, you love your hands on role, whether it’s helping a squad to run a rapid product experiment or crafting an impactful and beautiful user experience and UI on our native and web apps. We’re an early stage startup, so we are looking for a Product Designer who is passionate about keeping their high quality of delivery consistent, who loves pace almost as much as they love to ship, and who thrives in a role that requires them to initiate and drive continuous improvement in their domain.
