Job description

The UI Designer is a key member of the Engenious Design team. The Designer is an insightful and empathetic observer of users and their needs, translating these insights into visual design concepts that delight.

Designers collaborate with our Industrial Design team, Product Architects, Product Managers, Human Factors Researchers and Clients to create systems that make the world a better place. Our design work includes embedded systems with multi-language GUI’s plus mobile app development (iOS/Android). We create user interfaces for systems as simple as an ear thermometer or as complex as a life support ventilator.

This key team member is not afraid to go see how users interact with the systems we are designing, observing clinical practice in person, conducting interviews and generally partnering with clinicians to understand their viewpoints. They are equally comfortable talking to clients, project managers and engineering partners.
