IDEO is seeking an experienced organization designer who has created and implemented organization solutions, either as a consultant or in-house within a large organization. This role requires a rare blend of real-world experience and theory, a real passion for challenging received wisdoms, and the right mix of boardroom polish and grassroots hustle. You will work as a member of IDEO’s interdisciplinary project teams to help our clients achieve bold and meaningful change by testing and evolving strategies and solutions that build creative capabilities within an organization.
We believe that transformation happens by movement, not mandate, and above all else, we need you to roll up your sleeves and inspire action throughout our clients’ iterative change journeys.
In the past, we’ve helped clients address design challenges such as the following:
How might we...
...build and evolve an organization’s purpose through its products, services, and operations?
...establish and evolve minimum viable organizations in line with minimum viable products or services?
...design and operate an innovation lab to influence culture across an organization?
You can read about our organization design case studies here.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure 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.
You should be able to share work samples of design solutions that have influenced new ways of working within an organization.
Please apply with a resume and cover letter (yes, we read cover letters).
