About Us

At Prenuvo, we are on a mission to flip the paradigm from reactive “sick-care” to proactive health care. Our award-winning whole body scan is fast (under 1 hour), safe (MRI has no ionizing radiation), and non-invasive (no contrast). Our unique integrated stack of optimized hardware, software, and increasingly AI, coupled with the patient-centric experience of our clinics across North America, have allowed us to lead the charge against “we caught it too late again.” Prenuvo operates preventative screening clinics in Vancouver, Silicon Valley, Dallas, Boca Raton, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago, with more clinics in North America and internationally in the next 2 years.

The Opportunity

We are changing healthcare and bringing a slow moving goliath of an industry into the present while blazing a trail into the future of radiology and clinical operations through software, automation and AI. We are looking for a Head of Design to join our team (ideally based out of our Vancouver or LA HQ)! An established design leader, fluent in brand and product marketing and design, with expert administrative and inspiring creative management skills. You are an experience-first and user-first designer and big picture thinker and dreamer. You also don’t let all that dreaming come in the way of getting a lot done, and doing so in organizationally effective ways!

The ideal candidate has managed design teams across marketing and product, has a well-built design point of view that can thrive within the codes of a brand ethos, and is aware and excited by the challenges of developing creative in a regulated environment. The Head of Design can also seamlessly elevate the skills and perspectives of their team and find the right balance between quality, speed, and cost on every project.

What You’ll Do

  • Unify design functions at Prenuvo across brand, marketing, and product design (internal and external facing products)
  • Lead a creative team comprised of a lead brand designer, graphic designer, video/photo creator, and product designers
  • Where applicable, also handle external design and copywriting partners as they work in an embedded way with our team
  • Consolidate all design activities into scalable processes, and along a unified brand language across all of our interfaces
  • Embody the Voice of Design and be the guardian of the Prenuvo brand, and inspire the design team accordingly
  • Deeply understand the Prenuvo brand identity, and refine and evolve it over time with every practical use case application
  • Assess and make the most out of a balance of brand and performance marketing, defining a clear vision for Prenuvo design in line with our strategic priorities, our business planning and needs, making smart bets in a period of high growth and constant change
  • Build a design organization that works seamlessly at the pace of regular creative reviews, up-leveling every step of these processes with your design eye as well as your business hat
  • Play a critical strategic leadership role at all levels, and across stakeholders: executives, product managers, business owners, engineering, and marketing programs – become the unavoidable strategic thinking partner for all things design
  • Plan and drive budget requirements and resource planning with the relevant stakeholders (marketing, product, engineering, etc.)
  • With all that, never shy away from rolling up the sleeves and doing hands-on design work, ensuring design is rarely a blocker in getting high-impact initiatives, small or big, through implementation

What You’ll Bring

  • You’ve managed a design team, ideally across brand and product, of at least 10-15+ designers and producers at a design-centric organization
  • You’ve owned a design organization’s strategic planning and you are as strong an administrator as you are a design leader
  • 5 or more years of experience as a senior-level designer. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience directing complex solutions for medical products and/or services
  • A degree in a visual or experiential design discipline or equivalent professional experience
  • Ability to work with clients to understand detailed requirements and determine a plan that will ensure they are met or exceeded
  • Excellent interpersonal skills to clearly and effectively communicate the creative vision, concepts, ideas, and solutions to stakeholders, internal teams, and clients
  • Ability to work effectively in a team setting, including synthesizing abstract ideas into concrete design implications
  • Extensive supervisory experience (including leadership, team-building, and delegation) leading and managing a creative team
  • A solid grasp of art history, design history, photography and the visual arts, pop culture, and counterculture, fluency in current technology, politics, and a deep understanding of the zeitgeist of social tastes and current affairs
  • Be excited about collaborating and communicating closely with teams and other stakeholders via a distributed model to regularly deliver design solutions for approval.
  • Be open to receiving feedback and constructive criticism
