Job Description

About Ksana Health

At Ksana Health, we are committed to providing personalized digital mental health tools that help people live better lives. We are passionate about reducing the friction, stigma, and expense associated with the current century-old model of mental health treatment. Ksana Health is committed to “Health Equity” – both in treating mental health on par with physical health and also by helping underserved populations receive effective and affordable care.


Our innovative research and mental health care solutions are digitally transforming how mental health care is delivered, making it continuous and seamless across all levels. Through best-in-class passive and continuous remote monitoring, individualized insights, and digital therapeutics we are making care more accessible, scalable, and effective.

About the Role

As our first full-time designer you’ll have a tremendous impact on our products. You’ll become a subject matter expert for all things impacting our users, acting as their champion and advocating for them in each meeting you attend. Our Product Designer will play a key role in leading our user centered innovation. You will be a part of our Product team, collaborating with product and engineering to deliver a seamless experience for our users. You will support user research, sketch UX wireframes, build clickable prototypes, and create high resolution visual designs.

In addition to exceptional design skills, this position requires deep customer empathy and loads of curiosity. You are a creative problem solver who knows what questions to ask in order to identify the right problems to solve.

About the Products

The EARS research product is the first product built on the Ksana Health Mobile Sensing Platform.  This platform represents the core competency of the company – the ability to pull continuous, passively obtained sensor data from mobile phones and turn that raw data into objective metrics related to known behavioral health indicators.  For researchers, the shift from subjective self-reporting to objective observed data provides much more reliable indicators.

Ksana Health is also in the advanced stages of developing a digital mental health care platform – Vira. The Vira Health Care Solution is a digitally enhanced mental health care system consisting of user/patient smartphone applications and associated health care practitioner portals. The scalability of these tools is enhanced by the fact that no special equipment is required outside the consumer devices people already own (i.e., their personal smartphone).

The unique aspect of the underlying Ksana Health platform is that it utilizes Ksana Health Mobile Sensing Platform to measure multiple mental health relevant behavior patterns including activity, mobility, sleep, mood, social engagement, and cognition. The Vira Practitioner Dashboard integrates mobile sensing, self-report assessment, and just-in-time nudges and notifications into the clinician’s workflow. Patients using the Vira smartphone application can give permission to share their data with, and receive communications from a care provider.


We will always have a place for people who are curious and love to work with others on imagining, creating, transforming, and building something new, better, accessible, and equitable for all. Embrace who you are, you will be welcome at Ksana Health.

  • Work with team members in the execution and delivery of Ksana Health’s products and services, using a user-focused, iterative design process.
