This role is part executive assistant, part cultural liaison, and part project manager for studio initiatives. Coordinators tend to be at their best when supporting and making others successful.
Leadership Coordinators make the biggest impact through organization and flexibility.

This role is critical when it comes to keeping the studio moving forward in a coordinated way. We count on them to bring clarity to chaos, whether problem solving with internal stakeholders or ensuring external client needs are met. They will represent IDEO in a professional manner, both internally and externally.

IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism.

We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
