    Today

    WHY AXUALL?

    Axuall is an early-stage startup - we just closed our $3mm Seed Round - based in Downtown, Cleveland, and we're building a digital proof network for verifying credentials, identity, and authenticity.

    These are Axuall’s early days - we’re looking for those who are interested in joining our team of talented and committed entrepreneurs, technologists, and industry experts to help us build something awesome together.

    We're addressing a multibillion-dollar need to meet the demand for new delivery channels, products, and services in healthcare and other industries where proof matters. Axuall chose healthcare (where we have multiple committed pilots scheduled over the coming months) as our first market because it faces considerable challenges related to increasing practitioner shortages, delivery channel expansion, and the growing demands of an aging population. Together, these challenges drive the urgency to reduce the administrative burden on its practitioners, reduce delays in hiring, accelerate revenue capture, and improve access to care.

    ABOUT THE ROLE

    In this role, you will provide leadership and take ownership of the design, aesthetic, user experience and feel of Axuall’s product, collateral and encompassing brand. You will help us achieve our vision to simplify the credentialing process and create a product that our users love.

    • You work closely with the Product Manager to translate the product vision to workable designs for the Engineering team, minimizing front-end churn & eliminating inconsistencies.
    • You are well versed in responsive design and have a strong understanding of accessibility and responsiveness across desktop and mobile interfaces.
    • You are an excellent communicator and are comfortable having discussions with and incorporating feedback from users and stakeholders.
    • You have the ability to design at all stages of development while integrating ongoing user research, building from low-fidelity sketches and wireframes to prototypes to high fidelity mocks
    • You have experience with branding, web design, flyers, company collateral, and other marketing assets communicating a consistent brand across various mediums.
    • You understand the usefulness of a well-maintained and documented style guide that can be leveraged across Engineering and Marketing teams.
    • You are familiar with designing accessible applications and understand how to accommodate users with visual or physical impairments.
    • You have a demonstrated understanding of user-centric design practices and contemporary design patterns
    • You have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript - Vue.JS, Zeppelin and other technologies to facilitate work with engineering.
    • You have experience designing for applications that have several thousands of users, incorporating use data and analytics to iterate and improve the applications.
    • Academic background with Design, HCI, or other substantial relevant experience.
    • Link to an online portfolio that clearly demonstrates all of the above.

    About Axuall

    Axuall's founding team of entrepreneurs, technologists, and credentialing experts is focused on the premise that the verification of facts should not be as expensive and time-consuming as it is. We are building a worldwide network and marketplace of proof to solve this.

    Axuall makes presenting credentials easy, safe, secure, and instantaneous. We chose healthcare as our first market because it faces considerable challenges related to increasing practitioner shortages, delivery channel expansion, and the growing demands of an aging population. Together, these challenges drive the urgency to reduce the administrative burden on its practitioners, reduce delays in hiring, accelerate revenue capture, and improve access to care.

    Axuall's technology enables healthcare providers to request and receive digitally signed credentials from primary sources that they can securely share with employers, health systems, and insurance plans. The Axuall network proactively monitors conditional events, such as expirations and dependencies, allowing practitioners to address issues the moment they arise. This means credentials will always be up-to-date, ready to present, and aligned with standards. This eliminates the need for health systems to request redundant information, dramatically shortening the time it takes to hire, privilege, enroll, and activate practitioners.

    Axuall's founding team is responsible for over $1B in value creation across multiple startups and industries.

    Charlie Lougheed, Axuall's founder and CEO, is an experienced entrepreneur with multiple large-scale startups that grew to market leaders including Explorys (sold to IBM to become Watson Health in 2015), Everstream, PNC, and Deloitte.

    ABOUT STRONGDM


    strongDM is a customer-first company that has a rabid fan base. When was the last time you heard things like:


    Splunk's CISO Joel Fulton says "strongDM gives you what you can’t get any other way- the ability to see what happens, replay and analyze incidents."

    Chef's co-founder Adam Jacob says "strongDM takes the friction out of getting staff access to the systems they need."


    We built a technical product for technical buyers who have a high bar and low tolerance for sales spin. Customers love us because:


    The product rocks: strongDM fundamentally changes the relationship between InfoSec, DevOps, and end users. Enforce the controls security needs while making it easier to facilitate access.


    Customers trust us: we built a technical product for technical buyers. We do not use jargon. There is no alternative but to always be technically accurate. We are not afraid to admit product gaps.


    We’re real humans: we built a serious product without taking ourselves too seriously. Each member of the team is deadly good at their job, and yet we crack jokes on the phone with customers.


    WHAT YOU’LL DO


    As it says above :) Product is one of the three fundamental tenets of the strongDM business. It needs to work: seamlessly, effectively, and confidently. It’s written by engineers, for engineers. It’s outrageously difficult to build and yet must be the polar opposite to use.

    Welcome to the Product Design at strongDM! You’ll work with the Technical Account Management, Engineering and Support Teams (+ a Product Manager!) to define problems & goals, map user flows, create prototypes, and launch new features and products. You’ll be designing elegant interactions to manage a complex technical platform for technical users -- no easy feat. :)

    REQUIREMENTS:

    • Have a strong sense of ownership -- you’ll be our only Product Designer so if you can’t handle it, no one can

    • 3-8 years of experience with end-to-end product design

    • Experience designing for business and developer-focused products

    • Can solve complex problems with the right balance of flexibility, power, and ease of use

    • Are skilled in explaining your work, process, and decisions

    • Able to quickly identify user patterns of behaviors and can leverage them to make a seamless experience

    • Can think in terms of large systems but also zoom into smaller features -- no detail is lost on you but you won’t get stuck in the weeds

    • Fluent with a design tool like Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD, or Invision

    • Competent with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (enough to prototype, more than that is a big plus)

    • Have cross-platform design experience (Web, android, iOS, emails)

    COMPENSATION:

    • Industry-standard base

    • Extremely competitive benefits, including:

    • Medical, dental, and vision insurance

    • 401k, HSA, FSA, short / long-term disability, 3 month parental leave

    • 3 weeks PTO + standard holidays

    • Equity in a fast-growing startup

    No travel required
