We are searching for a Digital Product Designer with experience shipping web and mobile products in close collaboration with engineers. An ideal candidate has a strong point of view about digital product design and process and is able to articulate its value to internal collaborators and clients in service of creating groundbreaking digital experiences. This candidate will be a champion for digital design and is capable of collaborating with multidisciplinary teams of designers on projects focused on integrating interaction design into products, services, experiences, spaces, and brands.
In this role, you will get exposure to and/or be involved in all parts of the design process: user research, concept development, prototyping, working with developers, design stewardship, contributing to proposal writing, and client relationship development. We’re looking for someone who is as passionate about designing elegant user experiences as they are about using systems thinking and human-centered design as a source of inspiration to solve complex problems for and with our clients and partners.
Digital product design is a core offering at IDEO and a critical component to our goal of creating high-impact outcomes through human-centered design. The tools and processes associated with shipping brilliant digital products are changing fast. Clients look to IDEO for best practices, thoughtful provocation, and powerful inspiration. This role allows you to shape our work, teams, process, and client relationships. You’ll focus on some of the highest impact work we do and contribute on projects that bring about change inside and outside of IDEO. Working at IDEO means you’ll contribute to all aspects of the design process from user research to prototyping to helping narrate strategy and outcomes to the client.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. We work hard, but we also 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.
