About The Role
You will be a key part of a small but growing team of designers who envision products and experiences for gamers that want to escape the ordinary. We have an ambitious roadmap ahead of us and we need your help to make it a reality. You will actively take part in defining projects by shaping them throughout the design process. Insights from your design process will steer and guide the outcome and ultimately define the product success. You are the user's advocate and you’ll be responsible for taking products from early idea to a refined and feasible design vision. You will hand over the design vison to our skilled engineering teams for realization and manufacturing. We are a relatively small company, and you will work closely with Product Managers, Engineers, Designers and Marketeers to bring your ideas and design vision to the organization and ultimately into our customers hands.
 
What You Will Do
  • Work independently and in teams to drive the end-to-end product design process, from discovery to implementation 
  • Work closely with your colleagues in the design team and collaborate with Product Managers, Engineers and Marketeers
  • Use human-centered design methodologies and practices to elevate the customer centricity in your team and stakeholders around you (e.g. Conduct workshops, brainstorming sessions, etc.)
  • Work iteratively to explore new ways to solve our customers’ needs and pain-points, work quickly between sketches and 3D 
  • Create well-articulated, tangible design vison, with refined aesthetics and CMF documentation (colour, material, finish) 
  • Help shape the culture of Fractal Design, facilitating the push towards a design driven company and continue to shape the strategic design direction of the future of the company 
Who You Are
  • 2 – 5 years proven experience working with product design development 
  • Have experience in working with multi-disciplinary teams in iterative product development cycles
  • Have a great understanding and showcase of product thinking, storytelling, user needs/pain points and design craft
  • Strategic and purposeful in making design decisions and you do that by integrating user, business, and technical considerations into your process
  • You can identify priorities and when to optimize for speed and when to seek for quality and hone into the details
  • Very effective communicator when articulating your vision, strategy, and decisions of your design solutions
  • Experience working with interior design and consumer products is a plus
  • Previous experience from mesh modelling software (Blender or similar), surface modelling software (Rhino or similar) and render software (Keyshot or similar) is preferred
  • You have an education within Industrial design or Product design with training to develop your ideas with sketches, prototypes and models, both in computer programs and in workshops
  • Fluent in English is a requirement and knowledge of Swedish is an advantage
