About Us

Ovyl is a product development firm working on an exciting range of consumer electronics, lifestyle products, and medical devices. We're currently expanding our team in Nashville, Tennessee to include another Industrial Designer.

About You

You are compulsive about learning new things, even if you’re not sure when you can use the knowledge. You pride yourself on being a good question-asker which helps you to refine vague instructions until you have a clear direction. To you, making things and solving problems is the most fun you could have at work, and that’s why you are reading this now.

In this role, you will

  • Do real work on products that are meant to go into production.
  • Make clients happy by understanding them, solving their problems, and keeping them engaged.
  • Identify constraints and risks on project objectives related to technical, cost, and schedule limitations.
  • Create schematics and PCB layouts for projects ranging from proof of concept to high volume production
  • Work collaboratively as part of a team with diverse skills.
  • Provide excellent documentation for your designs from initial research to calculations to finished specifications for manufacturing.

Compensation, benefits, and perks.

  1. Work-Life Balance: Ovyl respects work-life balance. You can work from home as often as you want, be home for dinner, take a meaningful vacation off the grid, and work to live instead of living to work.
  2. Health Insurance: Ovyl covers 100% of your health insurance premium. You pay the difference for a spouse and/or dependents.
  3. Dental, Vision, HSA: Ovyl offers these plans but does not contribute to their premiums.
  4. 401k + matching: Ovyl contributes 3% no matter what, by default you contribute an additional 6% (you may change this).
  5. Flexible schedules & WFH: Ovyl supplies a new laptop to use for your work and you’ll get to enjoy the flexibility that we love so much about being self-employed. Want to work from home 2 days a week? Do it. Is it too perfect to be inside on a Tuesday? Work Saturday instead.
  6. Maker Reimbursement: We want to employ people that freaking love to make stuff, so we’ll reimburse up to $50/month of any personal project spending. Put it toward building a new headboard for your bed, or buying a really nice hot-glue gun, or getting an Arduino kit and figuring out how to automate your herb garden. Whatever.
  7. Access to 3D printers for personal use: If the printers aren’t needed for a project, have at ‘em. If it’s something small, it probably ok to just print it. If it’s something big or a mini production run, we may ask that you bring your own material.
  8. Stocked fridge and snacks: We’ll stay stocked up on healthy snacks, carbonated water, and beer. There’s also a free rotating craft coffee and a big selection of loose leaf tea.
  9. Company events: We take a day off work at least once a quarter to have fun, hang out, and get to know each other. You're part of the Ovyl Team.
  10. Join Nashville’s best product dev consultancy: You’ll get to learn new skills working alongside a great team on a wide variety of products, from medical devices that save lives to consumer products that light up a Kickstarter campaign.
