Lead UX Designer Redwood City, CA / Product Management - Product
Management / Working at the intersection of hardware, software, and
molecular science, we are committed to delivering on the promise of
3D printing, enabling commercial customers to go beyond basic
prototyping to 3D manufacturing. Our company is built on the idea
that when diverse fields of study come together, we are able to
solve challenging problems. Our dream is to build technology that
will influence industries around the world. You will be joining a
diverse team with a dynamic culture, where team success is as
important as celebrating individual contributions. At Carbon, we're
driven by helping customers make previously unmake-able parts. We
craft experiences from the virtual through to the physical, from
designing new geometries to preparing them to print to cleaning the
part in a washer. We want a Lead Designer to join our team of
people who are driven to build powerful yet simple products that
customers love to use.-- For this role, we're looking for someone
who wants to work with our product management and software
engineering teams to understand our customers, and lead us through
possible concepts that address their needs. We want a designer who
can direct their team, inspire the organization about the impact of
design, but also not be beyond sometimes hopping into the trenches
to make sure the details of the product are right. You want to look
at usage data, and feel comfortable using many user testing
methodologies. We also expect you're good at using the right tool
for the job: a whiteboard and marker, pencil and paper, Figma file
or our shared components style guide. What you'll do:
- Work cross-functionally with Sales, Service, Product Management
and Engineering partners.
- Facilitate design discussions, give feedback, and share results
of customer research and usage.
- Build a design team, provide direction for junior designers,
and create an environment for making great products.
- Collaborate closely with Product Leadership (product management
and software engineering) to explore concepts, define features and
contribute to the overall direction of the product.
- Define, craft and evolve designs within a shared design
language and actively share knowledge on how to utilize the design
- Work closely with your design team, Product Management, and
Software Engineering to ensure a high-quality implementation and
user experience. Your experience:
- Demonstrated track record of success in a UX design role, with
7+ years of professional experience.
- Strong collaboration skills, especially with product management
and software engineering.
- Previous startup or entrepreneurial experience preferred.
- A portfolio showcasing excellent design process and skills
including user research, wireframing, prototyping, visual design,
and interaction design.
- An interest in 3d printing, and computer-aided design (CAD) or
working on the software for a hardware product is preferred. You do
not need to match every listed expectation to apply for this
position. Here at Carbon, we know that diverse perspectives foster
the innovation we need to be successful, and we are committed to
building a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds,
experiences, and skills. By clicking the "APPLY FOR THIS JOB"
