Teknikio creates educational engineering kits for future inventors. Our electronic components and project kits are sold around the world for hobbyists, students, and curious minds. We regularly test new ideas at museums and other interactive spaces and work to adapt and improve our experiences based on trends and feedback. We are passionate about engaging girls and boys in STEM without creating gender barriers.

Teknikio is seeking a dedicated, collaborative, and creative Junior Designer. You are a big thinker, who feels inspired by the world and wants to create meaningful experiences. Your main focus will on our new line of products, an educational platform that brings IoT-focused design to the K-12 classroom. You will be working to design and realize a next-generation solution for hands-on education technology incorporating design constraints for the classroom environment. You will also be designing solutions to interface new ideas with our current products.

Additionally, we are interested in candidates that have some amount of experience with:
