Interaction Designer

Role
As an Interaction Designer for our clients project, you will help create new interaction models and user interfaces based on the new interaction technology we are developing.

You will work between interaction technology and product interaction design: on the technology side, you will work closely with engineers and proactively learn about and explore the unique qualities of our client’s hardware and software. You will also look at our clients product from the perspective of a product and UI interaction, exploring and establishing a new gesture interaction language, outside the familiar patterns of app and Web design.

You have an eye for the subtleties of product and gesture interaction and input/UI mapping and you are able to communicate those details to both technical and design audiences.

Daily Responsibilities:
Create and document hardware interactions for potential future products and for internal explorations.
Communicate interaction design considerations to different audiences, including engineers, management and potential customers.
In collaboration with the internal team, define both general and product-specific guidelines and principles for hardware interaction.
Prototype or otherwise visualize core concepts.

Minimum Qualifications:
Bachelor’s Degree
5+ years of professional experience in interaction design
Professional experience in interaction design for projects other than apps and Websites (e.g. consumer electronics, automotive etc.)
Solid understanding of input devices and input/function mapping: state machines, events, continuous vs discrete input, etc.

Nice to have's:
Experience with openFrameworks or similar software prototyping environment
Experience in designing for gesture interaction
