Job Description

DESCRIPTION
At quip, we design and deliver delightful products and services that keep your mouth healthy. In order to support our rapidly growing user base we are looking for an Industrial Designer to help continue with this growth.

The ideal candidate would be an industrial designer to help build our product portfolio, including both existing and in-process products. You will dive deep into concept development, brainstorms, and help create the future of product at quip.  You will be operating on a team of five designers and engineers to make real an aggressive product roadmap that impacts hundreds of thousands of quip subscribers. You’ll work with multiple disciplines and contribute concepts, thinking, research, and high fidelity form development to the design of our newest products.

You should be adept at communicating concepts through various mediums, including (digital) sketching, surface modeling, 3D printing and model making.  

Quip’s Innovation team prides itself on creative problem solving that bucks most ordinary practice. When we envision a product with unparalleled user experience, it requires a rigor of method, a depth of intelligence, and a penchant for delight not found in everyday products. If you’re ridiculously passionate about good design, we want to talk.




Responsibilities
A fine-grained attention to every detail of a product including material, finish, weight, and user experience
Ability to design cost-consciously around mold making, being mindful of materials, complexity, and part weight.

Ability to deftly prototype solutions using a mix of samples, hand work, FDM printing, and SLA 3D printing (Form 2)
You are naturally curious and take initiative to open up new ideas not just by suggestion, but through persuasive prototypes, and other media
 
Bonus Requirements
Knowledge of best practices for SLA/FDM 3D printing
Speak Mandarin or Cantonese
Foam and other sculpting-based modeling
A deep fondness for whiteboards and dry erase markers

About Quip

Most of us aren’t brushing our teeth correctly, either because we don’t know how to do it right, or because we just don’t feel like it. At quip, we design delightful products and experiences to help you care for your mouth better. Our initial product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste that was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. With refill brush heads and toothpaste arriving on a 3-monthly schedule, we are now growing our product line with that same standard of design. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility are applied throughout our community.

NOTE: International candidates must hold a valid US working permit.
