Johnson & Johnson Medtech is recruiting for a Lead UX Designer. This position is located in Santa Clara, California.

At Johnson & Johnson Medtech, we’re changing the trajectory of health for humanity, using robotics to enhance healthcare providers’ abilities and improve patients’ diagnoses, treatments, and recovery times. Johnson & Johnson Robotics was established in 2020 with the integration of Auris Health, Verb Surgical, C-SATS, and Ethicon. It comprises three key med-tech platforms: Flexible Robotics (MONARCH™), Surgical Robotics (OTTAVA™), and Digital Solutions. Join our collaborative, rapidly growing teams in the San Francisco Bay Area (Redwood City and Santa Clara), Cincinnati, and Seattle. You’ll collaborate on breakthrough medical technologies that unite multiple subject areas to build a connected digital ecosystem that advances medical professionals’ skills and improves patient outcomes.


You will join the Human Factors & Experience Design (HFXD) team and lead all aspects of UX strategy on the OTTAVA™ surgical robotic system and related experiences.

Working closely with designers, product management and human factors, you will drive the future of surgical robotics. Your day to day will incorporate concepting inspiring north stars, aligning designs across the team to the roadmap, and crafting the best user experience for the entire medical team.

Surgery is a team sport, so you will be encouraged to become familiar with a range of user types across a variety of clinical specialties. You'll bring your passion for design to a broad range of projects using both internal and external resources. Although the scope of your work is focused on digital interactions, this role should consider the physical experience as well.

As a member of the HFXD team, you'll also help shape a team culture that is inclusive, creative and obsessed with improving experiences for our users. We strive to create impactful work while also creating a positive environment for us all to work in.
