IDEO in London is looking for a Product Designer to join our team. As a Product Designer at IDEO you will create product designs and experiences that have a genuine impact on people’s lives. You’ll contribute to strengthening the product design point of view at IDEO by working across disciplines to bring your perspective to every project.
Product Designers make the largest impact with our clients and customers by turning bold new ideas into tangible product and experiences. At various stages of the process this can mean different things; whether building out quick and dirty physical concepts for user testing, designing CAD prototypes, or partnering with outsourced build shops to make final models - your ability to bring your team’s ideas to life will directly correlate to engaged users and customers, and excited clients!
Ask anyone at IDEO London why they like working here, and they will say it’s our people and the diversity of challenges. It’s a place where you can solve complex challenges for our clients or the organisation, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism.
We certainly work hard, but we also intentionally focus on our culture to design events where we pause, create, and connect.
We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work and respect the need for work-life balance. IDEO provides you support and development throughout your time here, while allowing for autonomy in the design process and in your career.
IDEO has had a studio in London for over 30 years. Over that time, we have grown in the scale of our influence and impact. Although we still work across every industry and sector, our consistent purpose to deliver positive impact through design, has meant that we have enabled companies all over the world to be creatively competitive.
