Senior Industrial Designer

New York

Industrial Designers at Smart are very hands-on. They make stuff, work with engineers, create prototypes, test their concepts with real users with the ultimate goal of helping improve the way people live and work. Senior Industrial Designers also lead projects and help mentor and provide guidance to junior designers. We’re especially fond of quick thinkers, problem solvers and good communicators with a well-developed sense of form, proportion, color and materials.
