Job Overview

We are looking for an experienced candidate that understands the product design lifecycle, software development and maintenance, and the critical characteristics of reliable and user-friendly product design.

The right candidate will be capable of collaborating in a small team environment with a high level of autonomy and freedom to pursue creative design ideas.
