You will be an integral part of the IDEO Shanghai team, and will also work closely with our partners Public Digital, who bring a wealth of experience in transforming governments and large organizations around the world to adapt to the internet era.
This is a new role to IDEO Shanghai and one that we hope will be an exciting opportunity for you. IDEO has worked at the cutting edge of technology, delivering innovative digital products and experiences for clients many, many years, from designing the first mouse through to taking today’s clients into a creatively competitive digital space. We are now building on this expertise by offering digital transformation services. For our clients, adapting to the culture, processes, business models and technology of the Internet-era is becoming ever-more essential to future proofing their business. We see this role as being a key driver to IDEO and our clients’ success in this field.
To be successful at IDEO a passion for design is vital. You’ll need to engage fully with the creative process of putting the needs of users and customers first. You’ll also need to provide practical technology leadership and expertise. You’ll help our clients understand their technology and data systems, and you’ll help them understand how these will shape and influence their digital transformation strategies. You’ll be excited by the opportunity to lead and shape our growing technology and development capabilities in IDEO Shanghai.
Ask anyone in IDEO Shanghai 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 use design thinking to solve complex problems for our clients, 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.
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.
