Octo Product Development

Description

Octo is a nimble, innovative design consultancy with a wealth of experience in the digital and physical worlds. We are a creative collection of designers and engineers who passionately develop products and experiences in a unique, unencumbered environment. We work with our clients to create products that balance real customer insights with the larger context and interconnectivity of our work.

 

We are looking for a self-driven UI/UX Designer with experience working in collaborative environments. Familiarity with design systems, qualitative research methods, and software platforms is a bonus. Front end development experience is not required.

 

Our ideal candidate should have the ability to synthesize end-user and client needs with their own innovative and unique perspective to create intuitive, research-based user experiences. Collaboration and iterative design are critical components of your workflow, and you should be able to use various storytelling and rapid-prototyping tools to communicate concepts effectively during design reviews. You are detail-oriented, organized, and work well under tight deadlines.
