Industrial Designer & UX Designer

Industrial Designer & UX Designer

 

About us:

At Myant, we are creating the world’s first textile computing platform, integrating technology directly into the only thing we’ve been wearing our entire life – our clothing.  The sensors and actuators embedded within our apparel create your Digital Identity, which can be shared with those who matter to you - your doctors, coaches, other IoT devices, your family members - without you consciously having to think about it. Imagine a world where you walk into your house and the temperature automatically adjusts to suit you, or the lights adjust to your mood, or your doctor is aware of the onset of a disease before you even visit. The line between the digital and physical world is becoming increasingly blurry, and we believe textile is the next medium to bridge that gap.

 

Myant is looking for people who believe in our mission to make wearable technology truly ubiquitous and convenient, so that everyone can benefit from it. We are a cross-functional team solving big challenges at the intersection of fashion, electronics, software, and data science.


 

You:

You’re excited at the prospect of playing a pivotal role by working closely with the multidisciplinary team of project leads, engineers, data scientists, and knitters. You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty by doing some hands-on work, but you’re also a strategic thinker with insight and creativity. You’re excited at the prospect of working on a new brand and cementing it as leader in the wearable technology space. Lastly, you enjoy being part of small teams that make a big impact and that’s the reason being at a startup is the right place for you.


 

The Position:

  • We need you to be multifaceted, with a deep knowledge of industrial design, as well as understanding of UX design.
  • You will take a lead role in developing the industrial and UX design for a new product line and brand.
  • You will deliver world-class design solutions and have the creativity and judgment to translate a customer centric design vision into concepts that are simple, intuitive and visually refined.
  • You’ll need to be curious to understand the intersection of consumer electronics and textiles to create designs that are beautiful and robust despite underlying complexity with our type of formfactor.
  • Have the ability to understand the user at a very deep level in order to ensure every detail is created with the user in mind. Details span from the physical product and across the app and web. You’ll be responsible to make sure we delight our customers at every interface.

Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design or related field of study
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills
  • Deep understanding of manufacturing processes and industry standards
  • Experience in design (proportions, color, form, ergonomics, typography, presentation) and a sense of design & visual culture (graphics, functionality, fashion, cultural & technological trends, history).
  • Excellent in visualizing concepts using industry standard 2D and 3D tools such as: Photoshop/Illustrator, Rhino, Solidworks, Creo, Alias and Keyshot.

 

Preferred Experience:

  • Experience or interest in wearable tech
  • Experience in a startup environment
  • Experience with products that include hardware-software user experience.
