Industrial Design at Huawei

  • Successful designs answer both needs of human desirability, business viability and technical feasibility.

  • You have excellent sensitivity for shape, colour and finishes. You can rationalize designs semiotics, though you are not a stylist, but a true innovator with users at heart and a passion for detail.
  • You understand branding through design and will contribute to the generation of an integrated product portfolio.
  • You can quickly elaborate ideas, by sketching, 3d modelling, quick and dirty prototyping or 3d printing, for team communication, functional verification and/or aesthetic presentation.
  • As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will develop designs from conception to manufacturing: basic knowledge of the primary materials and manufacturing processes is necessary. An understanding of mechanical and thermal engineering is a plus.
  • Passionate and objective minded, you will apply best practices in industrial design, aiming at the world-class award-winning output.

  • You preferably have BA / MA in industrial design and/or design engineering
  • You have a minimum of 7-8 years of experience in either in-house or consultancy environments. During these years, you have led projects with several designers but also continuously done hands-on designs.
