About The Role:
As the Senior Industrial Designer in the Product Development group, you lead design projects at the intersection of human usability, commercial viability, and manufactured reality. Your solutions impact the full spectrum of new product introduction, from initial research and exploration to market launch. Reporting to the Industrial Design manager, you join a talented team responsible for physical, graphic, and interactive design definition. You are supported by a fully staffed model shop, including metal fabrication, welding, 3D printing, wood-working and assembly areas. Our manufacturing lines are footsteps away from our design studios, promoting your ability to learn and enrich your work with real-world considerations as products are built.
This position requires a refined intuition for human-scale aesthetic form generation, and sensibilities attuned to solving for both exerciser and operator needs. You should be cognizant of fitness trends, and proactive in observing and researching users to inform and inspire your work. Intellectual curiosity, patience, and comfort with ambiguity will enhance your learning and ability to collaborate. Using our Design/Build/Test principles, you strive to transcend manufacturing processes in the pursuit of industrial design integrity. This is a perfect opportunity for a seasoned designer who desires hands-on involvement across all phases of product development, and who is intrigued by the potential to shape the future of fitness.
