ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

JUUL Labs is currently seeking a Senior Packaging Production Designer with an outstanding design portfolio and deep experience owning packaging fitting for a premium consumer experience - from design, to printing quality to function and beyond. This role is responsible for crafting creative solutions to packaging challenges including packaging portfolio strategy, new product expansions, optimizations of existing packaging across a breadth of components. You will own design harmonization between design, packaging engineering and production - but also the day-to-day details (rolling packaging changes, ranging from the creative to the necessary). You will play an active role on our internal creative team and participate in regular design reviews, and may be asked to contribute your design thinking to other creative projects as well. We are looking for a thought leader that translates their creative energy, engineering, and production know-how into compelling and thoughtful work.

* Work in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.
* Participate in all phases of the packaging production process from set up, to output, to taking on press.
* Own the big strategies but be able to dive into the details.
* Collaborate with and inspire business, product and marketing leads.
* Provide team leadership with the ability to complete projects with little support.
* Work closely with other designers and engineers, challenging each other to drive better design work.
* Occasionally travel nationally and internationally.

 

PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS: 

* 8+ years of relevant experience in mechanical production preparation, with focus in packaging at a consumer products company (prefer consumer electronics packaging experience demonstrated in portfolio)
* Understanding of user-centered design methods and techniques for both design and form factor (must exhibit concept to production in portfolio)
* Strong portfolio of production design that proves not only solid production skills but forward thinking on behalf of cpg product brands
* Experience defining print specifications and finishes, as well as functional engineering components (show us that you’ve worked with product and supply chain teams)
* Excellent computer skills including Illustrator, Photoshop, Powerpoint (industrial design experience a plus)
* Highly driven and proactive self-starter - taking on a task without much context and driving it through
* Believes in collaboration in a multi-disciplinary design environment
* Excellent communication skills in sharing your design thinking, presenting to all levels of co-workers throughout all stages of design

 

KEY ATTRIBUTES NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS:

* Previous cpg packaging production design experience, preferably in a fast-paced environment (start-up or like)
* Understanding of user-centered design methods and techniques for both design and form factor
* Strong portfolio of production design that proves not only solid production skills but forward thinking on behalf of cpg product brands
