UX Designer (Contract)

Remote (United States)

About Us

Healthcare can be faceless and overwhelming. But, in the next few years, a wave of patient-centered technology and services will begin to transform the way healthcare is accessed, distributed, and discovered. 

At Clara, we’re doing our part by building a platform that combines leading-edge technology and empathetic patient focus to make it simple and approachable to find and connect to clinical trials that fit them best. 

In democratizing access to clinical trials for all patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds - while also helping research teams more efficiently reach out to and engage with the patients that they need to participate in their trials - we believe we can help make healthcare more diverse, open, and welcoming. 

This is the first step in our mission to provide every single person with the easiest, most supportive and complete access to all of their healthcare options, from learning about the options they have, to actually accessing the one that is best for them, for free.

This is a full-time remote 3-6 month contract role. The weekly commitment is 20-40 hours/week. There is a possibility for full-time employment (based in San Francisco, CA) after the contract period ends.


At Clara, patient-centric design is at the center of everything we do. As a UX Designer at Clara, you will drive the design vision and strategy for key product areas and work closely with our engineering team to ensure a high-quality implementation. You will work fluidly with the rest of the organization through all aspects of the design process, and collaborate with patients to translate complex needs, technical constraints, and business goals into thoughtful, effective user experiences.

If you are a designer passionate about breaking down the barriers that exist in today’s healthcare landscape, and want to work on difficult, meaningful problems that millions are waiting for solutions to, we would love to talk to you.
