Senior Product Designer
As a Product Designer at Toyota Connected, you will be responsible for the design of digital products that help millions of Toyota and Lexus owners on a daily basis.
We're looking for someone with a strong mix of interaction design, visual design and prototyping skills. A strong understanding of motion design would be ideal too, but ultimately we’re looking for someone who’s curious and consistently honing their craft. As a Senior Product Designer, you'll be responsible for creating digital solutions from concept through iteration as part of an agile development team. This means you'll be solving problems with product owners, developers and other UX designers—using research, prototyping and good design sense.
UX designers work across all products at Toyota Connected but each of us has primary areas of focus. Yours will be in two areas:
- Guiding how Toyota and Lexus drivers interact with voice agents—everything from directions to emergency situations.
- From 2018 forward, all Toyota and Lexus vehicles will be connected, providing an astronomical amount of data and opportunities. As a Product Designer, you'll help our big data team create products across mobile, web and other technologies.
