About the Role


As a Design Engineer, you'll work on the front end of our products and features used by people everyday and bring great product experiences to life. The work is challenging, fast-paced, and always changing. You have demonstrated analytical skills, an unwavering commitment to quality, a collaborative work ethic, and cutting-edge coding skills. In a Design Engineering role, you will need both design and technical skills and a passion for both. You’ll work in a team along with user experience designers, researchers and engineers to create proof-of-concept prototypes, highly valuable interactions, and rendering complex and data rich designs and UIs that are both beautiful and highly usable. You will create interactive prototypes that can help the team learn rapidly, as well as prototypes that are used as a north star for engineering teams to build high quality products that are deeply human-centered. We are looking for a design engineer with high craft, experience with motion, animation, and pushing the boundaries for great digital experiences, and someone who places the user at the heart of technology. From early prototypes to production-ready concepts, design engineers create interactive products and bring a tech-centered lens to every step of the design process.


You are passionate to take on new problems as we continue to progress autonomy technology forward. If you get excited about building new things and working across disciplines, our team might be your next career step.
