Product / Industrial Designer

England, United Kingdom · BS0319

Description

Overview of the role

We are looking for a Product / Industrial Designer to produce functional, effective and aesthetically pleasing products. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your abilities in a cutting-edge industry where your work will be at the forefront of what is technically possible. You will discuss design requirements, technical specifications and other criteria with internal teams and customers. You will be responsible for preparing detailed drawings of the product and making amendments based on feedback and testing. You will have responsibility for the whole product design, including packaging and user experience. You will need to work across multiple teams, including R&D, production, business development and service design, as well as the executive team.

Ultimately, you will help us build products that are easy to use and visually appealing to our potential customers and communicate their function and the Company’s values with a clear and consistent visual language. As this is a product for manufacturing some exposure to designing for manufacture is essential, the ideal candidate would be someone with this experience at the early stages of their career but who can add value to our growing organisation. The products are also the result of extensive R&D and very tight engineering constraints, and so an understanding of mechanical and electrical engineering, as well as software interface design is also desirable.


As part of your application you must include examples of your work/portfolio, the best way to do this is on a PDF document all in a single file with your resume/CV.


Animal Dynamics… about us

At Animal Dynamics we make vehicles that combine high efficiency with full autonomy and are able to do more with less impact on nature than other vehicles that perform the same tasks. Taking our inspiration from animals and the natural world we can achieve significant improvements in the performance and efficiency of vehicles in water, air, and ground travel.

What motivates us is our desire to create original and worthwhile solutions to real problems. We are motivated to realise designs that will positively disrupt industries and technical approaches that have long been taken for granted.

Our current focus is on two vehicles: a small flying surveillance vehicle, called Skeeter, that is able to fly quietly in high winds; and Stork, a vehicle which has been designed as a highly energy and cost-efficient aerial system for carrying loads. These vehicles are full-stack autonomous vehicles, with complex mechanical, electronic and software features. There is a range of vehicles on our roadmap, and we have demand for these products in a variety of international markets.

Based near Oxford, we are a friendly Company which is growing rapidly. We recruit talented, committed people who want to work in a stimulating and supportive environment.
