Industrial Designer

United States, Los Angeles /
ZURU Tech – Product Development /
Full-Time
We are creating the world's first building information modeling application that is fully connected to an Industry 4.0 capable factory to manufacture any building. Our ¼ scale test production line proved its feasibility over the last five years.

We’re looking for an experienced Industrial Designer to work on our building project. As part of the Product Design Team, you will help control the quality of the experience in every ZURU building. From a preliminary concept to the production of the final product, you guide the product design with full attention to detail, pursuing the highest quality and craftsmanship, timeless design and a seamless experience. The goal is that all ZURU buildings are great buildings, so every surface being touched, every single detail, and all the visual points in the building will be designed thoughtfully. You will help design products tailored to all target cultures and countries but bound to the principle that good design is transparent and timeless. As an out-of-the-box thinker with a can-do attitude, you will work alongside a team of product development engineers to design a new generation of buildings. This is not a task for one person, so you will have a chance to build a team around you.

What You'll Do:

    • Develop the physical and aesthetic aspects across all our building products considering our goal of timeless, and sustainable design. 
    • Develop an overall design process and design strategy for all product design. 
    • Work on establishing, developing, and implementing best-in-class product design.  
    • Develop a cohesive catalog of finishes, materials, and geometries that are used throughout our buildings in all products.  
    • Understand current trends across multiple markets as well as forecasting emerging trends to design a successful product.
    • Coordinate with and consult other team members on product design, layout, detail components, and systems and resolve design or other problems.
    • Use 3D software for modeling and rendering, as well as knowledge of prototyping equipment. 
    • Work alongside our product development team.
    • Work with our pre-production and production department to validate designs, mock-ups, and test homes. 
    • Work alongside the code compliance team to design a product that can be used in all our target markets. 
    • Work with our software teams to develop our own software to design the best buildings possible.

What You'll Bring:

    • Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design or similar.
    • 5+ years of experience in an industrial design related role.
    • Experience using 2D and 3D drawing software.
    • Experience in manufacturing processes and techniques used to manufacture products made from a range of materials.
    • Excellent presentation, verbal, and written communication skills.
    • Strong focus on simplicity and usability.
    • Willingness to travel is a plus. 
    • Please note: this is a full-time position in our Los Angeles office (El Segundo).
