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.
You are compulsive about learning new things, even if you’re not sure when you will use the knowledge. You pride yourself on being a good question-asker which allows you to refine vague instructions until you have a clear direction. You are comfortable with using power tools, but you’re careful enough to not make all of us uncomfortable with you using them. You probably even keep up with Industrial Design trends and practice your craft in spare time. 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
Sketch design concepts that you or others have come up with
Scrap together many quick mock-ups from all kinds of materials, especially 3D-printed ones.
Make clients happy by understanding them, solving their problems, and keeping them engaged.
Do real work on products that are meant to go into production.
Design and assemble high-quality prototypes.
Build CAD models using Onshape.
Work closely with the Ovyl team.
Provide excellent documentation for your designs from initial research to calculations to finished specifications for manufacturing.
BA or MA in Industrial Design is preferred but not required
Sketching and CAD skills are a must
Long term, you can WFH or remote but you must be able to work on-site when needed
Compensation, benefits, and perks.
Work-Life Balance: Ovyl pays competitively, gives top of the line perks, and above all, 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.
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.
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.
Stocked fridge and snacks: We’ll stay stocked up on healthy snacks, carbonated water, and beer. There’s also a free Bongo Java coffee and a big selection of loose leaf tea.
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.
Join Nashville\'s best product dev agency: 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.
