    Technology Development

    The Innovation team in Toyota Connected is looking for a Voice UI Designer who will lead, define, and drive spoken language and multimodal interfaces. You must be an innovator, since you will be expected to create solutions for exciting and ambitious ideas for which no interaction paradigm currently exists.  We are looking for team members that are required to be creative in solving problems, excited to work in new technology areas and be ready to wear multiple hats to get things done in a highly-energized, fast-paced, innovative and collaborative startup environment.


    What you will do: 


    • Produce voice user flows, wireframes, prototypes, and rigorous user interface specifications
    • Confidently defend design rationale used to create solutions in design reviews
    • Draw on depth of experience, but initiate UX research and testing efforts when necessary
    • Conduct analysis of real usage data to inform UX optimization efforts and perform root cause analysis to respond to UX performance issues
    • Speak authoritatively on concepts of spoken interaction design in daily iterations with product managers, engineers, and testers as well as coordination with other designers
    • Start simple while not losing sight of the long-term vision
    • Thrive in a nimble and start-up environment
    • Communicate clearly and think quickly




    • 5+ years of professional experience as an interaction designer/user experience designer
    • 2+ years of experience in human-computer interaction design in voice or multimodal speech interfaces
    • Experience in designing voice interaction flows and prototyping voice user experiences
    • User experience design skill set including data-driven analytics capabilities, and a working understanding of speech and language technologies
    • Experience working cross-team and synthesizing feedback and input from product management, engineering, and marketing
    • We think the knowledge acquired earning an BS in Design, Linguistics, HCI, or a related field would be of great value in this position, but if you're smart and have the experience that backs up your abilities, for us, talent trumps degree every time


    Preferred Qualifications:


    • Background in script writing, creative writing, or game design is a plus. Ability to write copy/scripts that will be spoken is a plus
    • Ability to prototype voice user experiences with readily available tools
    • Experience with designing for conversational AI
    • Experience with Agile/Scrum
    • Experience designing mobile web, and/or on-device mobile applications
    • Experience shipping innovative, successful consumer voice products
    • Unwavering attention to detail



    We offer:


    • Money (We pay well and we reward excellence)
    • An environment of A-players. We're careful about who we hire because we find that people who are at the top of their field like working around others who know what they're doing
    • Freedom to work with modern technologies in a greenfield environment. We care that you get your work done, but you will get to help decide on how we can leverage modern technologies to solve our challenges
    • Nice perks like game rooms, free food, dog friendly environment, team activities and happy hours
