Founded by Dr. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg in 2015, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is a new kind of philanthropy that’s leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – from eradicating disease, to improving education, to reforming the criminal justice system. Across three core Initiative focus areas of Science, Education and Justice and Opportunity, we’re pairing engineering with grantmaking, impact investing, policy work, and movement building, to help build an inclusive, just and healthy future for everyone.
We believe we can help build a future for everyone.
- We aim to be daring, but humble: We look for bold ideas — regardless of structure and stage — and help them scale by pairing engineers with subject matter experts to build tools that accelerate the pace of social progress.
- We want to learn fast, but build for the long-term: We want to iterate fast and help bring new solutions to the table, but we also realize that important breakthroughs often take decades, or even centuries.
- Stay close to the real problems: We engage directly in the communities we serve because no one understands our society’s challenges like those who live them every day.
Our success is dependent on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, veterans, and people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
Our mission is to support science and technology that will help make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the century. Interdisciplinary teams of physicians, biologists, computational scientists, and engineers can expand our understanding of the human body and illness — the very science behind medicine. CZI fosters collaboration between scientists and engineers, develops tools and technologies, and builds support for basic scientific research.
We are seeking an experienced product designer to join our Meta team within the Science Initiative and bring intuitive, delightful and valuable discovery experiences to the science community.
- Partner with product management, engineering, data science, UX research and experts in Science to translate broad, conceptual ideas into useful, straightforward, and valuable product experiences
- Incorporate qualitative and quantitative data to assess the impact of your designs
- Craft a holistic view of Meta as a product for biomedical researchers while also thinking through more nuanced design decisions
- Raise our bar for design quality by giving feedback to and soliciting feedback from other designers
- Develop new scalable components and visual assets for design systems that can facilitate contributions by other designers
- Set the standard for visual quality and rigor in our design system; identify opportunities for brand expression and delightful user experiences
- Execute in a fast-paced and fluid environment
- 5 years as a product designer, ideally with interaction and visual design experience working on top of complex, ranked data
- Ability to think critically about complex, social products, and clearly explain reasons for new features or design changes
- Demonstrated experience with end-to-end product design, including clear and effective interactions, to accomplish product or business goals
- Comfort integrating qualitative and quantitative data to pragmatically learn and iterate towards high-impact product ideas. Experience with effective A/B testing is a plus.
- Excellent communication skills and ability to explain rationale for product design recommendations
- Experience designing for diverse groups of people preferred (international audiences, multi-language localization, accessibility, etc.)
- Demonstrated mastery of typography, grid systems, color theory, and other aspects of visual design with strong attention to detail
- Demonstrated visual design skill, especially in the construction of visual hierarchies, and attention to detail on typography, spacing, and color
