In this highly visible role lead product design role, you will utilize your design experience and intuition to define and develop a new category of Apple products. Short-term team responsibilities include designing and building prototypes to define the product architecture in partnership with our elite Industrial Design and Human Factors teams.

You will learn how to seamlessly integrate electrical and mechanical components into Softgoods to create soft products that are both breathtaking and highly functional. Long term, you will have the opportunity to define our Softgoods architecture, design, develop, and ship products that will amaze and delight our customers.

Key Qualifications

  • A proven track record of creative product design based on solid engineering fundamentals.
  • Typically requires 7+ years of 3D and 2D CAD experience using NX or equivalent (12+ preferred). While we provide NX training, including surfacing, previous experience will allow you to excel immediately.
  • Experience leading projects from conception to market and demonstrated ability to dig into the details while looking at the big picture.
  • You should have excellent communication (verbal and written) and interpersonal skills, including the ability to present technical concepts to multi-disciplinary teams.

Description

The Softgoods team works with traditional engineering materials and specializes in non-traditional engineering materials. Our mission is to use these incredible materials to enhance Apple's existing product lines and to enable new technologies.

We are a hardworking team of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. We work together in two alluring, customized labs where we design, engineer and develop the best products in the world.

Delivering extraordinary Apple products made of soft materials is an exciting challenge and requires a creative and open-minded approach. As a team, we are responsible for creating Softgoods products in a new product category.

We are looking for a motivated and experienced Lead Product Design Engineer to join our diverse team. In this role, you will guide and mentor an engineering team to define product architecture, work through the entire product design process, and ultimately ship amazing products.

Softgoods materials and assembly processes are very different than traditional engineering materials and manufacturing methods. If these are new to you, you will quickly learn by working closely with our team.

In this role, you will leverage your previous experiences and technical skills to creatively solve problems as you drive innovation and precision into our products. Previous experience leading consumer product design teams and knowledge of statistical analysis, failure analysis, root cause investigation, design of experiments, etcetera will be beneficial in this role but are not prerequisites.

Education & Experience

BS Mechanical Engineering or equivalent required; MS preferred.
