Our success with our clients — SMEs to multi-national corporations — is built on high-quality service, delivering creativity, innovation and technical excellence to create commercially successful and innovative products.

We are experiencing rapid growth in our business in China. To meet increasing demand, in May 2011 we opened a new studio in Shanghai. Situated in the desirable downtown Luwan district, the office undertakes industrial design and engineering development projects for Chinese and international clients. We need to build a team of the highest calibre.

The role:

We need an exceptional and experienced Industrial Designer to join our creative and energetic, multinational ID team in China. You will be responsible for your own design projects from end to end, working either independently or with other team members such as engineers. You will take your own creative lead as well as receiving guidance from the group’s Head of Industrial Design. As the team in the Shanghai office grows, the role would grow as well and we expect that you will be able to guide the creative talent of the team in Shanghai.

Working as part our international team of designers and engineers, the Industrial Designer will add to our creative problem-solving abilities in delivering effective design solutions. You will be joining the team in it’s infancy at a really exciting time, where you can help evolve and grow the company from 5 people to double that over the next 12 months and onwards. There may be opportunities for travel both domestically and internationally, and there will be regular collaboration with UK staff.

What we need from you:

You must be highly motivated and passionate about the creation of exceptional products. You must relish the challenge of working in a collaborative environment and possess an appetite for combining problem solving and rigour, with a deep empathy of user needs and outstanding skills with form and aesthetics.

You can see projects from concept to manufacture and must be able to manage the design process from end to end and champion the design intent throughout. You will work with others in this process and be responsible for the quality of your output as well as giving guidance and leadership to others. You will be responsible for nurturing excellent client relationships and delivering outstanding product designs on time and on budget.

Fluency with a sketchbook and 2D and 3D software and ability to articulate your ideas to the team and to clients in English and Mandarin are all essential.
