High-end bags for the traveling businessman
Soft Goods Product Designer for Men's Travel & Lifestyle Startup$50k – $60k
Please read carefully. This is NOT a job post for a website designer or UX/UI designer
We're a new startup in the men's travel and lifestyle accessories niche. After a successful crowdfunding campaign for our weekender bag in October 2019, we're looking to expand our product offerings over the near future and coming years.
We're looking for a talented soft goods product designer to assist in creating and developing new product designs that fit underneath our brand. You could expect to design things like backpacks, tote bags, gym bags, wallets, tech pouches, dopp kits, weekender bags, etc.
Your job will be to collaborate with CEO and Art Director to come up with creative and innovative designs that not only look great but offer practical funtionality and add value for our customers. Together we'll test these concepts with real users with the ultimate goal of helping improve the way people live, work, and travel. You will need to take these designs and build out comprehensive tech packs that can be used for manufacturing.
Eventually you'll also lead projects and help mentor and provide guidance to junior designers. We’re especially fond of quick thinkers, problem solvers and good communicators with a well-developed sense of form, proportion, color and materials.
Naturally, you have:
-5-7 years of experience as a product designer
-An incurable curiosity relating to all things design
-Passion for conceptualizing and designing meaningful product solutions for people
-Organized and comfortable leading project teams and client meetings
-Incredible 2D skills like hand sketching, Illustrator and Photoshop rendering
-Equally incredible 3D CAD skills
-Comfortable with making quick foam models and rough prototypes
-No fear of teamwork, brainstorming sessions or presenting in front of your team
-Healthy email habits, making you a communicative and responsive team player
-Ability to confidently present your design to clients and answer any questions
This would start on a project to project basis as needed with the opportunity to become a full time position as we expand. The salary is a placeholder for now.
