Job Description:

The mission of this project, is to bring a safe and seamless connected experience to every car. We are doing this by facilitating media, communication, navigation, and other scenarios for the driving experience.

This UX team is looking for an Interaction Designer to help craft our user experience guidelines for our internal teams and external partners.
These guidelines will be critical in enabling our OEM and third-party partners to design and develop their car interfaces.

We're looking for someone to learn the technical and design context, and proactively drive development of these guidelines.

  • Familiar with HTML, CSS, Javascript, and related technologies

Client Description:

One thing we know is that this client, as big as it is, is still setting the standard for not only the product they’re turning out, but for the way they conduct business.

Our client is the global leader in technology, with offices in many major cities. As different as those cities are, you can expect that the personality of each office is the same. Commonalities include bringing people together in the physical work space, outlets for creativity (outside work-related exercises), and a setup for brainstorming on the fly, whenever the opportunity strikes.

What they see in your resume, if you’re selected, is your ability to be an autonomous thinker, and a team player; someone focused, and driven to push the envelope who can also let down their guard and have fun with the team while doing it; someone who has the intellectual capacity to challenge even the most innovative thinkers without the hubris that tends to accompany it. No egos here!

Here, everyone is considered a project owner, and expected to give 100%, even when the path forward isn’t necessarily clear.

Work here, and know you’re working with a Forbes #1 rated company.

Work here, and know you’re setting the pace for digital products globally.

Work here, and find the challenge of your career!

And in case you’re afraid you won’t have time for other things, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Fitness center access

  • Discounts on things like dry cleaning and oil changes

  • Free lunches

  • Convenient commuter shuttles
