Product Design Intern @ iRhythm
San Francisco (Design District)
We are a digital healthcare company focused on identifying cardiac arrhythmias through biosensors, ML, and data analytics. Our digital tools are used by medical providers, and over 1 million patients have worn our ECG patch as first-line ambulatory monitors for arrhythmias.
iRhythm’s Design & Usability Team
We work hard to bring beautifully crafted experiences in both form and function into the medical device space. Being part of the Design team at iRhythm means bringing the voice of our patients and healthcare professionals to the forefront of conversations about new initiatives and product features. This user-centric mindset frequently drives us out of the office and into the field to learn more about the challenges our users face and the broader context in which are products are used. We enjoy designing mobile apps, websites, hardware products, and packaging that embrace these challenges – whether it’s a doctor having a busy day at the hospital or one of our more senior patients applying a heart monitor at home.

Some examples of projects that you may work on during your internship include: Coordinating usability studies, generating design concepts in the form of wireframes or low-fidelity prototypes, or helping to organize/improve our UI pattern library.
