There's A Smarter Way

About RS21

RS21 is a leading data science and visualization company tackling humanity’s biggest challenges. We develop interactive, big data analytics and visualization products that connect people with the data they need to make better, faster, smarter decisions. With offices in Albuquerque, NM and Washington, D.C., RS21 works with the federal government, Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, healthcare organizations, and public and private organizations across the United States and internationally.

RS21 is looking for a Senior UX Designer with keen interest and abilities in several (but not all) of the following: product strategy, user research, IA, UX, UI, information design, and visual design. We are not looking for unicorns – rather generalists with deep areas of expertise or interest. While we don’t expect you to code, if you have the skills to put together interactive prototypes or have FED chops, that would be rad. Your ideal type of squad consists of inventive developers, brilliant data scientists, and other killer designers working in a collaborative, agile environment.

For this role, we are looking for designers with applicable, demonstrable experience in the medical field – specifically oncology and clinical / research tool interface research and design. Ability to lead the UX research and design of software projects focused on the complex fields of health analytics, bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and population health analytics is ideal, but we are open to another relevant health related domain expertise.

In other words, we do really cool stuff for our clients and have fun while doing it.

07 Contribute to RS21’s thought leadership

08 Collaborate with fellow team members to keep up with trends and developments in big data, information visualization, interaction design, AI, and AR/VR

09 Act as guide & mentor to UX & UI design team and lead by example


01 Experience of 6-10+ years

02 Master’s Degree + Continuing Education or Certification (or work experience equivalent) in Computer Science, UX, IA, HCI, Communication Design, Fine Arts, or related field

03 Experience with Figma, Omnigraffle, Adobe Creative Suite or vector-based UI tools – and a willingness to learn new tools as needed

04 Understanding of frontend development languages (HTML/CSS/JS)

05 Information design experience / a hefty library of Tufte, Ware, or Few

06 Experience streamlining workflows and/or visual elements to influence user behavior and interactivity
