IDEO is in search of a Director of Mobility to be based in Detroit who will help us lead our clients through the transformation taking place in the automotive and mobility industries. To do this, we are fostering and embedding new ways of working in our client organizations and using human-centered design to solve these clients’ most critical challenges. This person will develop deep, collaborative relationship with our clients, lead and inspire world-class design teams, and bring their design expertise to complex system challenges.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse challenges for our clients and 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.
IDEO Chicago, in particular, is in an exciting moment of growth that you will have the potential to influence and shape. We’re helping clients launch entirely new ventures, adding new disciplines and capabilities to our studio, and incubating a new offer that’s spreading company-wide: Design for Augmented Intelligence.
IDEO creates impact in the world through our deep relationships with clients. You will be helping to lead some of IDEO’s deepest partnerships and helping to solve some of our toughest and most ambitious challenges. Through this work, you will help us push the edges of IDEO’s capabilities and demonstrate new ways for design to have impact within client organization. Your skill set is critical to our work because you have the ability to both cultivate client relationships and support the development of world-class designers.
