Job Description

In this interdisciplinary position in our development department, you will lead UX/UI activities in our Milan Design Center by bringing your deep understanding of user centric interaction development processes, the latest in hardware and software technologies. Your work will be a key part of the product creation process and thus make a significant contribution to the development of medical devices.
As part of our Industrial Design team, UI/UX senior designer responsibility is to create a compelling, safe and efficient user experience in medical products developed by Flex.
Your will implement your ideas on different medical devices: from simple drug injectors with connectivity, wearable devices or professional equipment for surgeons. Thanks to your creativity and technical know-how, you should feel at home both in UX and visual design and as well as hands on HW prototyping and connecting with engineering.

Important note: Our activity focuses on UX/UI embedded into physical medical devices, therefore experience in the areas of mixed physical/digital product interface is a plus (for example, interfaces for: white goods, domotics, car environment, machines control). Lower priority will be given to candidates with only web or app experience.

We are looking for someone who demonstrates:
* Intense collaboration
* Passionate customer focus
* Thoughtful, fast, disciplined execution
* Tenacious commitment to continuous improvement
* Relentless drive to win

Here is a glimpse of what you’ll do…
* Development of embedded UX/UI for physical consumer medical products.
* Creative direction for all aspects of interfaces in collaboration with our Industrial Design team
* Assess and continuously improve the usability of our products during development and overall product life cycle
* Conception and realization of workshops in the fields of design exploration and ideation, user studies, etc.
* Development and construction of physical/digital prototypes (using Arduino boards, sensors, displays, etc.) in cooperation with our workshop. Starting from basic paper models, interactive boards through touch-screen demos to fully functional advanced prototypes.
* Scouting and implementing the latest user interface technologies, e.g. Mechanical controls, Sensors, feedback components (e.g., LEDs, device displays, haptic feedback) in close coordination with the engineering-team
* Preparation of detailed technical and functional specifications as well as subsequent evaluation of the development patterns

Here is some of what you’ll need (required)…
* An Education degree in a creative discipline: ID, Graphics, UX, UI, is mandatory.
* Track record as an UX/UI Creative on mixed physical/digital products.
* Demonstrate through examples a user centric approach in Interface Design, User Experience, visual language creation, technology, HW prototyping and User Research activities.
* 3-5 years of constant exposure to complex projects in a design agency or product company.
* Comprehensive set of skills that allow you to develop an idea: hand sketching and rendering, concept sketching, story boarding, physical interactive prototyping and SW implementation.
* Knowledge of Mobile platform (IOS, Android, Windows)
* Ability to develop code for quick mock up prototypes or simulators
* Object Oriented Programming (OOP) skills (e.g. JAVA, SWIFT, C#, Obj-C). Knowledge of SW embedded architecture in particular about HW resources (display technology, MCU, processing constraint) and SW libraries (UI-Rtos) are a plus.
* Other qualities we are seeking: Leadership traits, aesthetic sense, ability to develop world class interfaces, positive attitude towards technical challenges and very open ended creative thinking.
* Languages: English – full proficiency, business fluent.
* For consideration, please submit a copy of (or link) to your portfolio
