Visual Designer

The Company

BenevolentAI unites technology with human intelligence to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines. We have developed the Benevolent Platform®, a drug discovery platform built on powerful data foundations with state of the art machine learning and AI technology. Our technology empowers scientists to decipher the vast and complex code underlying human biology, find new ways to treat disease and personalise medicines to patients. Benevolent has active in-house R&D drug programmes in disease areas such as neurodegeneration, immunology, oncology and inflammation and has research and commercial collaborations with leading pharmaceutical and research organisations. The company is headquartered in London with a research facility in Cambridge (UK) and a further office in New York.

Who we are

We are an eclectic bunch at Benevolent, united by our belief that innovative thinking and purposeful technology can truly change outcomes for the better. Our mission is to re-engineer drug discovery and deliver life-changing medicines for patients in need and we do this by applying AI, machine learning and other advanced technologies to reinvent the ways drugs are discovered and developed. We strive to bring together unique skills and perspectives across biology, chemistry, engineering, AI research, informatics, precision medicine and drug discovery.

The Role

BenevolentAI is on a mission to change the way we discover and create new medicines. We’ve built a platform of computational and experimental technologies and processes that can advance the entire drug development process. We’re now building a team of designers to help take our platform to the next level.

As a Visual Designer, you will join a cross-functional squad that designs and develops user-facing products for our internal users — experts in biology, chemistry, and clinical sciences. In this role you will be shaping the look and feel of our products (covering all aspects of user interface) and design novel ways in which data visualisation can enable scientific insight and discovery.

Working closely with members of our product, engineering, design, and science teams, you will address non-trivial user needs such as exploring vast quantities of mined and inferred biomedical data, understanding predictions from AI models, or making informed decisions for complex multi-parameter problems.

While driving our visual design and UI design work from concept, through prototyping and testing, to implementation, you will also own and evolve our design system.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Create, refine, and deliver user interface concepts, wireframes, prototypes, specifications, and assets across all stages of the product development process
  • Apply user-centred design principles and practices to meet user needs and product requirements
  • Work closely with members of the engineering teams to support the implementation of design specifications
  • Communicate design work and rationale to team members and stakeholders
  • Maintain and evolve visual standards and design consistency across products

We are looking for someone with

  • Experience in digital product design working on user-facing projects
  • A design portfolio highlighting multiple projects, your process, direct contributions, and demonstrated use of visual design principles and practices (typography, colour, layout, etc.) as well as high attention to detail
  • Excellent skills in low- and high-fidelity user interface design, including proficiency with industry standard design tools, e.g. Sketch, Photoshop, Marvel, Figma
  • Experience working creatively with data and data visualisation
  • Demonstrated strong communication skills, including the ability to effectively present design work and articulate complex concepts to diverse audiences
  • Experience working with iterative software development teams in a cross-functional setting, employing agile and lean practices
  • Ability to write clearly
  • Experience working with a design system
  • Ability to work independently and under time pressure
  • Curiosity, open mind to work on complex challenges in scientific domains
  • Experience in a relevant sector (life science, healthcare, data science, etc.) is a plus

Together, we envision a world in which no disease goes untreated. If you are benevolent, curious, want to tackle real world problems and are willing to embrace new ideas, hit that ‘apply’ button and join us.

Important Note

It has come to our attention that unfortunately fraudsters have been falsely offering jobs and set-up fake interviews under the guise of being a Benevolent recruiter.
