Job Description

Product Creation Studio is an award winning, fast-paced, full-service product development firm located in Seattle’s booming South Lake Union tech center. We are searching for an exceptional Industrial Designer with 2+ years of experience to join our dynamic and talented team. Our diverse group moves ideas from sketch to reality for a wide range of clients. We are obsessed with creating inspiring products that enhance people’s lives for consumer, research, industrial and medical –and we have fun doing it!

You are more than a designer who has a hot sketching hand, you are passionate about a holistic development process and are driven to tease out the nuances that make a good design great. You are highly empathetic to the end user and you design for them.

PCS is a collaborative environment where good ideas can come from anyone. We work in an open studio where you will work directly with and support senior design staff and our full array of engineers. This position reports to the director of design & ux.

The following is the basic skill-set we require for consideration and must be demonstrated in your portfolio-
• BA/BS in Industrial Design required
• Solidworks power user with an emphasis on surfacing
• Ability to create compelling renderings using Keyshot.
• Excellent rapid sketching ability. Cintiq experience is a plus but raw hand sketching should be shown in addition to digital work
• Full mastery of the Adobe Suite
• Aptitude for quickly making low fidelity 3d prototypes
• Persuasive verbal and visual communicator
• Empathetic listener that practices a user-centric approach to problem solving
• Your beautiful designs must be supported by a demonstrable process. We want to see the rational used to define your end solution
• Must play well with others and take direction willingly to support the team’s efforts on all levels
• Self-starter who takes personal responsibility for finding solutions and solving problems
• Show examples of design for ‘Hard Products’ such as consumer electronics, tools and medical equipment. (packaging, soft goods or furniture are interesting but this is not our work focus at PCS)
• 2+ years of experience

Other skills/passions/experience that are nice-to-have:
• UX/UI Experience and a passion for user interaction
• Hot graphic design skills related to product development (UI, logotypes, packaging, etc.)
• Animation capabilities
• Mechanical aptitude and a passion for the details (do you play with engines, build robots, restore watches, hack code, etc?)
• Marketing savvy and brand aware
• ID internship & and any design work experience, with references, a plus

APPLICATION DETAILS
