JOIN THE CREW!

STEL is looking for a Mid-Level Industrial Designer with Outdoor, Sport, and Consumer Electronic industry design experience.

Who are we?
STEL is a design consultancy located in Santa Barbara, California. Our team consists of a talented group of multidisciplinary creatives combining expertise in design and engineering. Specializing in outdoor, sport, and consumer electronics industries, our services provide complete, turnkey solutions working with startups, entrepreneurs, and Fortune 500 companies.

Who are you?
You are an independently-minded, creative person with a passion – a need – to design.

You’re trying to find that perfect workplace where you can exercise all of your well-developed skills, your bright ideas, your keen eye for form, and your sense of humor, all at the same time.

You will take the lead in client relationships and strive to ensure that their needs are on time and on budget. Although you’ve got big ideas, you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get technical: you’re skilled at integrating ideas into original hand-sketched concept drawings and electronic renderings, models, mechanical drawings, and written reports. You know how to develop technical digital layout drawings for mock-up prototypes and initial product parts details and assembly, creating conceptual models using 3-D and 2-D computer modeling software. You live and breathe innovation. Don’t forget your interdisciplinary education of Industrial Design skills and Engineering collaboration need to blend extremely well.

You have a tight portfolio. You’ve built it using a bunch of expensive Adobe products. It features all of your best problem-solving skills and elegant solutions, all drawn up digitally in Sketchbook Pro or Photoshop. The portfolio shows your background research, your thought process, your experimentation, your failures, and how you arrived at your final design. An awesome design with PROCESS shown. Yes it’s true – we like to see how you think.

You’re curious – that’s part of the reason you’re such a good designer. It’s why you’re here right now to start a new adventure with STEL, LLC.

REQUIRED SKILLS
A background in visual design, interaction design or industrial design
Adaptable and refined skill set in 3D concept design and motion design
Strong application of user interface design processes focusing on consumer electronics
Proficiency or familiarity with creative programs such as Keyshot, Octane render, Maxon Cinema 4D, Adobe Suite, Solidworks, Fusion 360, Modo, and Rhino
