NurseGrid believes that those who do the most important work deserve the best technology. Over the past four years, we’ve created the number one nurse app in the United States and rolled out our SaaS solution to hundreds of nurse managers. Now we are ready to go even further. Our eleven-person product team is looking to add another designer to help us achieve our goal of becoming the must-have mobile app and cloud-based schedule management software for nurses everywhere.

We are a small (33 person) but growing and always dynamic team. We work hard and produce high-quality work at a rapid pace, but we also have a ping pong table in our office, a couple non-work related Slack channels, a company volunteering initiative, and a team wide adoration of pets. We’re located in the heart of Old Town in Portland, with Ground Kontrol around the corner and multiple transportation routes and options to the office. We offer a generous PTO package, medical/dental/vision benefits, work-from-home-Wednesdays, and six optional remote work days per quarter. Come enjoy the work, connect with the team, and set aside some time to enjoy everything the Northwest has to offer.
