Design Lead

Are you the passionate and creative design wiz we are looking for? Join our world class team and help us deliver on our vision – empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health.

Are you someone who wants to make the world a better place, not content going to work designing yet another product that people don't need? 

Our mission

Diet Doctor was founded by Andreas Eenfeldt (M.D.) with the long-term goal of empowering people everywhere to dramatically improve their health. More than one billion people suffer from health issues related to type 2 diabetes and obesity, for which they're often personally blamed and rarely given the support they deserve. We aim to change that.

We’re fully funded by our members, so we don't need to show any ads, sell any products, or take any industry money. This also means that we have zero external investors, and are instead owned by the 40+ people who work here – and we offer all employees the possibility to buy a stake in the company regularly.

What have we achieved so far?

  • Profitability for years, self-funded, no VC investment, and lots of cash in the bank.
  • The by far largest keto and low-carb site in the world.
  • About 5 million monthly visits, 65k paying members and 40+ full-time co-workers.

What's in it for you?

  • Meaningful work: The opportunity to strengthen our visual identity and brand by smart design that could dramatically improve the health of a billion people.
  • Meaningful relationships: Be part of a massively driven, ambitious, and kind culture filled with people who want to do good in the world. 
  • Rapid growth: As Design Lead you will work together with a small but talented team to start with. In the near future you will be in charge of recruiting more talented members to your team. We'll give you lots of responsibility but also the support you need to do great things and learn fast. We urge you to keep growing and the company will happily pay for courses or conferences you want to attend. 
  • Great compensation: Market-level salary, overtime pay, office bonus, and owning a meaningful part of the company through our employee stock offering (you've not heard of a better stock program).

What you'll do

  • Brand guardianship, ownership of Diet Doctor's identity and brand voice.
  • Be in charge of building a strong internal creative design team.
  • Create pixel perfect, high level visual designs against timelines with the assistance of the internal team. 

Who you are

  • 10+ years working in a digital design role, mainly focused on web and app.
  • 2+ years of experience managing designers.
  • Outstanding organization, project management, and team management skills.
  • Ability to develop innovative creative work that's in line with the strategy.
  • Expert level in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and XD.
  • Have a tight portfolio with high level graphic design with proven illustration and typography work for both analog and digital media.
  • Love making products that are super simple and inspiring to use - not content with "good enough" but strive for world class usability.
  • Great presentation skills. Ability to clearly explain and defend your work in meetings and reviews.
  • Enthusiastic collaborator, open to other people's ideas. At the same time, you will need to show initiative and have accountability for the stories you are telling.
  • Smart, driven and hard working. 
  • Belief in the importance of our values: trustworthiness, simplicity, inspiration and goodness.
  • Strong desire to do something meaningful.
  • Excellent written and spoken English.
