IDEO Interaction Design Opportunities
Come create impact with us:
At IDEO, Interaction Designers play an integral role in our design process, and in evolving our business through the work. We count on our interaction designers to create compelling interactions and experiences through design, prototyping, and storytelling. They guide project teams to consider interactions people have with complex systems, software, services, and each other, create prototypes of varying levels of fidelity to communicate a concept, and provide expertise on the potential of hardware/software intersection, digital product design, service design, systems design, and experience design. As an Interaction Designer at IDEO, you’ll work on project teams to help clients practice human-centered design to solve complex problems, & create breakthrough experiences, services, and products.
Along your journey, you may have called yourself any of the following, but not limited to: Digital Product Designer, UX/UI Designer, Systems Designer, Interaction Designer, Product Designer, Visual Designer; or have studied topics related to Experience Design, Interaction Design, Human Computer Interactions, or Human Factors.
At IDEO we create impact through design. Our goal is to create work that is desirable, feasible, and viable. Interaction Designers live at the intersection of all three lenses. This role will create opportunities to stay with your work and support its execution in the real world.
We're looking for people who enjoy working across a variety of digital platforms, and can zoom in and out, designing at both the detail and the system levels. We are looking for one or more of the following proficiencies:
As an Interaction Designer, you bring humility and empathy to both your work output and your collaborators. You thrive on complex challenges, have a passion for design, keep a pulse on emerging trends and technology, and hold a developed point of view about your work.
We know the skills, passions and flavors of Interaction Design vary, which is why we’re looking for individuals who know how to design across a wide variety of mediums; mobile apps, websites, digital/physical controls, room-scale displays, AR/VR, voice user interfaces, and/or a range of prototyping tools, including new-to-market, interactive, and motion-based tools. Do you have experience with a variety of design tools such as Sketch, Figma, InVision, Framer, Principle, Adobe CC suite, HTML/CSS/JS, Processing/P5, or Arduino? Great!
You bring experience building and using prototypes to test assumptions and collect feedback on a design direction. You are highly collaborative, and maintain a mindset of curiosity and openness when working across teams and functions. You practice curiosity by asking questions, learning through secondary research, talking to experts or others not like yourself, requesting feedback from others, and seeking out other perspectives.
IDEO is a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients and their organizations, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and humility. We intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. 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.
At IDEO, we are committed to the work of advancing diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization and in the world. Our purpose of having disproportionate, world-changing impact through design is directly connected to our ability to bring many different perspectives to the table. This applies to our candidates, the people we hire, the clients and customers we serve, and the communities we learn from in our research.
