The Senior Industrial Designer with a focus in Aviation will be responsible for conceptualizing and developing aerospace concepts at a high level of complexity and for which few precedents exist. This person not only manages all technical and organizational aspects of an assignment, but is also capable of creating aspects of form, aesthetics, physical and psychological interfaces between users and products. The ideal candidate has the proven experience in designing/developing aviation products and in the greater field of airline design. In this position you’ll work alongside some of the best and brightest talent at TEAGUE. Experts in all fields, this small team is able to execute on any design challenge, from large-scale conceptual environments and brand experiences to the small intricate details of in-flight entertainment, interaction design and all other products within the Aircraft and passenger environment
Why We Need This Position
It’s simple, really. TEAGUE delivers the future to clients. In order to do so, we need designers who have the vision, aesthetics, technical know-how to imagine what could be, explain it to others, and then go about creating it.
Who We’re Looking For
You are a highly creative, technically savvy, culturally sensitive designer with a passion for aircraft and an unquenchable desire to shape the future of flight. You are capable of pushing the creative potential of new ideas to new heights, all while staying within the confines of budgets, manufacturing processes, and industry restrictions and requirements.
A typical day for you might involve determining a project’s scope, tasks, and schedule and maintaining accurate project documentation or developing design solutions for aircraft interiors, possibly related to: aircraft seating, galleys, lavatories, ground environments or spaces, or other products facing passengers and crew; creating client-specific presentations; catching up on transportation design industry market trends, materials, and technology.
You will take the lead in client relationships and strive to ensure that their needs are on time and on budget. Although you’ve got big ideas, you’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get technical: You’re skilled at integrating ideas into original hand-sketched concept drawings and electronic renderings, models, mechanical drawings and written reports. You know how to develop technical digital layout drawings for mock-up prototypes and initial product parts details and assembly, creating conceptual models using 3-D and 2-D computer modeling software. You live and breathe aircraft design, and ideally, you love to fly (about 10-20% of the time, that is).
