What we are looking for:
Fast Radius is seeking an experienced forward-thinking, user-focused Product Designer to translate business and product requirements into living, breathing designs. This role is heavily focused on user-experience, so the ideal candidate is expected to showcase a portfolio of research-backed work across various stages of the design process, from journey mapping to wireframing to high-fidelity prototypes and more.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with product, engineering and other stakeholders to take briefs and requirements from initial concepts to high-fidelity responsive designs.
  • Act as the user advocate across every aspect of the design process, ensuring that the customer voice is represented throughout.
  • Communicate design decisions effectively based on user-research, content strategy, usability and design thinking.
  • Build strong relationships with stakeholders and fellow colleagues, acting as a design evangelist across departments

Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of relevant professional and creative experience.
  • Well-rounded portfolio that effectively communicates design process and results driven by design choices.
  • Experience in simplifying complex Information Architectures.
  • Experience building and/or working with scalable design systems.
  • Experience working across web, mobile and native application design.
  • Strong attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Ability to prioritize tasks on a long-term and short-term basis.
  • Passion for building things with new technologies.
  • Experience working with 3D software or game engine (Solidworks, Maya, Unity, etc.) a plus.
  • Knowledge of modern Javascript frameworks is a plus.
  • Education: BA/BS in Human Computer Interaction, Design, UX or a related field or equivalent practical experience

An Insider's view of Fast Radius

What are some social events your company does?

I believe it’s important to build a strong community at our fast-growing company. There always seems to be something fun going on. Whether it's company-sponsored events like our holiday parties & potlucks or more casual get-togethers after work such as happy hours & sports leagues. These events have helped me get to know people in all divisions.

Kyle Tabatt

Senior Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Fast Radius has a strong culture of collaboration. Even the physical layout of the office supports that. The design engineers are next to the manufacturing engineers and the factory so it is easy for us to get feedback and brainstorm in real-time as parts are getting produced.

Izzy de la Guardia

Application Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

With any rapid growth company, we have growing pains. Each team has its own goals, their own visions of success, and as such it's tough to stay aligned as one team. The Project Engineering team is working across the company on improving communication and workflow which ultimately ensures we keep the culture we've created long term.
