The opportunity
A position is now available for a Lead Designer to head up RTC’s product and UX design section.

Overview
As robotics technology and business intelligence become fundamental to future equipment design and fleet management tools in warehouse environments, there are associated demands for improved safety, user experience, efficiencies and a need to provide actionable insights to warehouse managers . The position requires the successful candidate to take a lead role in the design of both digital and physical products. It will be essential that that the designer works collaboratively with the technology disciplines and be well able to engage with and understand the team’s advanced technology developments in robotics.

Position Requirements
This role requires a minimum of a Bachelors degree from a well-recognised Tertiary Product/Industrial/Interaction Design program. It is expected that the successful candidate will have 5-10 years of product development experience, be able to work effectively and independently, have proven successful experience in all phases of product development, and have strong skills in communication and design management. Good design judgement and understanding will be critical.

The applicant’s portfolio should demonstrate strong design skills including conceptual thinking and hands-on creative problem solving. The position requires frequent national and international travel. While this is a lead role the successful candidate must be as hands-on as they are strategic. Proficiency in programs such as Sketch, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier, Keynote and solid modelling capabilities will be important.
