The MATERIAL DESIGN INTERN will be a specialist on a short term, experimental CMF development program, with an opportunity to work closely with a multi-disciplinary design team. Under the lead of CMF design, your role will support the vision of the Material brief and provide engineering and mathematical support to the Industrial Design lead. While design-minded, with a holistic consideration to a human-driven experience; the MATERIAL DESIGN INTERN will specialize in solving for rapid prototyping on 3D modelling and printing iteration with the goals to trial and realize production-level material on preliminary a product prototype within a six-month time-frame.
You either hold a deep understanding of mechanical engineering or industrial design with an expertise in computational 3D modelling. You are no stranger to working fast and systematically with a sense of curiosity and adventure that allows you to find accomplishment in trial and failure. Your path may have been a little different to get to where you are, and it may be unclear still to where you will go. This project is one of experimentation, but the potential for great growth. The team you join embraces the quirk… of materials, design, and our team itself. Your attitude and fit with a highly collaborative and diverse team is as important to us as your skill.
This is a 6-month internship, with possible extension to fulfil a 12-month term (project dependent).
This role is remote, based out of the SF Bay Area. The team is centred around the cities of the Bay, and candidates should be fully available during the Pacific Standard workday. Additionally, limited access to our 3D print lab - housed in our Newark, CA location - could be considered.
Role to begin October 5th, 2020; exact start date is negotiable.
