About Proscia

Pathology is at the center of medicine, and is undergoing a profound transformation as the final frontier of digitization in healthcare. We started Proscia to accelerate pathology’s transition from microscope to images, and to use that data to change the way we think about cancer. We can’t change medicine alone. That’s why we’re looking for curious thinkers. Big dreamers. Developers, evangelists, pathologists, and scientists. Exceptional talent to help us use great power for good and advance humankind.


At Proscia, we push the limits of medicine and technology, solving problems the world has never solved before. We build software used by thousands of scientists and pathologists, who work on the front lines of fighting big enemies, like cancer, for patients around the globe. To accelerate our vision, Proscia has raised $35MM in funding from great investors like Scale Venture Partners, Hitachi Ventures, Flybridge, and more.


About this Position

Medical software has historically been defined by “box-checkers” that have ignored design and neglected their customers. This technology deficit means that critical fields like pathology continue to leverage archaic practices. Shouldn’t people and businesses at the center of the patient’s journey have access to the best software, built with the highest standards?


At Proscia, we care deeply about the things we build. That’s why we work to earn the respect of our community by creating beautiful and compelling experiences.  While this is core to who we are and how we started, our team and product is growing, and we need help scaling. We’re looking for a passionate Senior Product Designer to help us continue to create experiences that our customers love, throughout their journey with Proscia. This position is based in Philadelphia or can be remote but the candidate should be authorized to work in the US.


Responsibilities: What You’ll Do

Proscia is a fast-growing startup, and we want entrepreneurial thinkers that thrive in a challenging environment. When you come to work, you can expect to:

  • Use extensive and demonstrated expertise in visual hierarchy, layout, and information architecture to
    • Illustrate design ideas using storyboards, process flows, sitemaps
    • Develop UI mockups and wireframes that clearly illustrate function and aesthetic
    • Generate graphical elements
    • Develop and maintain the Proscia design system
  • Develop company product design principles, leveraging brand guidelines and customer feedback
  • Work closely with product managers to gather and evaluate user requirements and customer feedback
  • Work closely with our software development team to guide the implementation of new features
  • Demonstrate a sophisticated grasp of the business objectives for the product area and tie it back to everyday work
  • Identify product overlaps and gaps in own work, and that of other designers on adjacent products
  • Lead and direct group design conversations keeping them focused and on track
  • Demonstrate a deep dedication to our customers by investing significant time observing them work and validating ideas/solutions with them:
    • Participate in user research and lead solution validation work
    • Lead usability and safety studies (including formative and summative human factors studies) and other studies in ergonomics, user productivity, etc.
    • Troubleshoot UX problems, continuously auditing the product to optimize the user experience
    • Manage the customer and user experience with Proscia’s solution, end to end.
  • Demonstrate thought-leadership and help expand the company’s intellectual property portfolio
  • Cultivate a culture of design throughout the entire company, providing the resources for all team members to be everyday designers and create beautiful and compelling experiences for our community
  • Manage 1-2 junior designers


What we’re seeking

The success of our business is dependent on the ability for humans and computers to cooperate effectively. In a time of transformation, human-centered design is critical. While we’re open to people that can prove us otherwise, we expect you to at least have:


  • 6+ years of industry experience (preferably B2B) as Product or UI/UX Designer or similar role
  • Bachelor's degree in design, human computer interaction, or relevant field
  • Strong portfolio of design projects, with experience designing web applications
  • Experience with design software including Figma, Sketch, Principle, Adobe CC suite, and/or similar design applications
  • Highly creative personality with an experienced eye and inherent design mindset
  • A passion for human-computer interaction
  • Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript
  • Ability to communicate ideas clearly and thrive working in small cross-functional teams with product managers, engineers, physicians, and quality analysts, among others
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in both one-on-one and group situations


Candidates that stand out from the rest will have:

  • Experience working in medicine / healthcare
  • Understanding of AI-based workflows - how humans interact with AI
  • Understanding of the laboratory / anatomic pathology workflows
  • Experience with software designed for productivity


Beyond Just Work

As a company in the healthcare field, we want our people to be happy and healthy, in and out of the office. In addition to competitive pay, we ensure everyone on our team is supported with savings, schedule, and insurance options that promote long-term health and personal growth.

Our office environment is designed for creativity and agility: with walls as notepads and couches for collaboration. We’re located in the heart of Philadelphia, with views of the city atop the train station so you can spend your time focusing on what matters most. Yes, we have the free food, gourmet coffee, craft beer, massage chairs, and wellness rooms —but you’ll come for the challenge, the camaraderie, and the opportunity to do bold work.

At Proscia, we don’t just accept differences — we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products, and our community. Proscia is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
