Full-Time 3D Designer – Footwear Design, Development & Production at Ariat

jobsUnion City, California, United States


Job Description

Ariat is looking for a 3D Cad Designer to join our Footwear Design team located in our headquarters office in Union City, CA.  The Footwear industry is moving towards faster and fewer physical prototypes, quicker to market ideation and more realistic buy off on computer rendered cads.


Our candidate will be getting in on the start of movement that has unlimited growth potential as this new way of creating product in the footwear industry grows.  We are looking at all types of 3D levels, new hotshot graduates with the right skill set and drive to seasoned 3D veterans with perhaps a teaching background that would like to translate their skillset to the product side while still offering a lot of guidance to a brand looking to infuse a new tool into their product creation skill set.


The primary responsibilities of a 3D designer are designing, creating, and providing photo realistic renderings for presentations, factory explanations and print and online product selling. Producing compelling, photo realistic 3D renderings, animation, and photo composites is also a part this role.  This role will work side by side with our current footwear design team (both fashion and industrial designers) often bringing their designs to realistic 3D level renderings.  This will be the first hire on the 3D team and will have a large role in suggesting software and hardware choices, teaching and guiding the 2D design team about 3D while also supplying sales and marketing with photo realistic designs for print and online.  No direct reports at this time but the team is expected to grow rapidly.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that 3D artists must hold the following traits:

  • Ability to showcase artistic works in a portfolio
  • Collaborative personality and willingness to create with other designers
  • Artistic talent and 3D computer skills, MODO preferred but other cad systems
  • Creativity
  • A college degree in multimedia design or equivalent and some prior experience in multimedia design are a must


Bonus Skills:

·         Footwear knowledge and fashion interest a plus.
