User Experience & Design
Mountain View, CA (HQ)
X is looking for an experienced Creative Lead for its central Design team, our in-house design and user research studio serving all of X’s moonshots. The ideal candidate should have a strong interaction design and UX portfolio, with a demonstrable focus on the generation of rapid, exploratory prototypes. Current X projects may include early-stage robotics, aviation platforms, or a range of still-secret innovations.
Design at X requires significant creativity and flexibility from designers. This role will report to the Head of Design and depending on the project, you may also be involved in projects with a focus on user research, industrial design or business innovation.
Your day may involve designing interfaces, mapping out user journeys, creating visual assets, brainstorming in a large group, managing other designers or prototyping future interactions. In parallel, this role will involve working closely with business strategists, scientists and entrepreneurial engineers, and the introduction of strong design principles and processes to these partners. You will have a strong interest in technology, have worked alongside engineers and product managers, and have an aptitude for all aspects of design.
