DESCRIPTION

At quip, we design and deliver delightful products and services that keep your mouth healthy. In order to support our rapidly growing user base we are looking for a Packaging Designer to help refine existing packaging and define new solutions for delivering our products and services to customers both in retail and at home.

The ideal candidate would support our product portfolio, including both existing and in-process products with packaging solutions that enhance and complement our products.  You will be operating on a team of 10 designers and engineers to support an aggressive product roadmap that impacts hundreds of thousands of quip subscribers. You’ll work with multiple disciplines and contribute concepts, thinking, research, and high fidelity form development to the design of our product packaging across multiple channels and use cases. You should be adept at communicating concepts through various mediums, including (digital) sketching, surface modeling, 3D printing and model making.

quip’s Hardware Innovation team prides itself on creative problem solving that bucks most ordinary practice. When we envision a product with unparalleled user experience, it requires a rigor of method, a depth of intelligence, and a penchant for delight not found in everyday products. If you’re ridiculously passionate about good design, we want to talk.

 

Responsibilities

  • A fine-grained attention to every detail of a design including material, finish, weight, and user experience
  • Ability to design cost-consciously around target margins, being mindful of materials, complexity, assembly, and weight
  • Communicate findings clearly, with a process to condense and clarify a mixture of inputs
  • Research and contribute new materials or methods that support strategic goals and reduce our ecological impact
  • Technically excellent with a drive to constantly push your craft to the next level
  • Collaborative and humble personality that can make other people’s work even better

 

Requirements

  • 4-6 years of professional Packaging Design experience
  • Strong graphic design aesthetic
  • Ability for hand-sketching or other rapid concept development techniques
  • Confidence with 3D modeling, specifically SolidWorks, Fusion 360, or Rhino
  • Strong command of rendering tools like Keyshot, V-ray, Blender, Creative Suite, or others
  • Strong and effective verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills
  • Ability to think of creative user focused experiences and designs.
  • Ability to deftly prototype solutions using a mix of samples, hand work, FDM printing, and SLA 3D printing (Form 2)
  • You are naturally curious and take initiative to open up new ideas not just by suggestion, but through persuasive prototypes, and other media
  • Ability to create production-ready 3D models and 2D drawings for injection molded parts

 

Bonus Requirements

  • Knowledge of best practices for SLA/FDM 3D printing
  • Speak Mandarin or Cantonese
  • Foam and other sculpting-based modeling
  • A deep fondness for whiteboards and dry erase markers

 

Availability

We're looking for full time candidates. You should be local in the NYC area and able to work with us in-office on a daily basis in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

 

Benefits

  • You'll be working in a high energy, fast paced environment helping us make oral care simple and effective!
  • An office located in the heart of DUMBO with breathtaking views of Manhattan Bridge
  • Wifi enabled rooftop
  • Fully covered health insurance (with an option to opt into a premium internal dental program)
  • Commuter benefits for parking & transit
  • Offer competitive paid parental leave policy for qualifying employees
  • Flexible work from home options
  • Open vacation policy
  • Dog friendly office space
  • 401k Contribution
  • Competitive compensation package with stock options at a high-growth startup
  • Fully stocked kitchen with snacks (make sure to use your quip after snacking!)
  • Your very own quip with an unlimited subscription plan
  • The opportunity to help us make oral care more simple, effective and accessible!

 

About quip

Most of us aren’t brushing our teeth correctly, either because we don’t know how to do it right, or because we just don’t feel like it. At quip, we design delightful products and experiences to help you care for your mouth better. Our initial product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste that was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. With refill brush heads and toothpaste arriving on a 3-monthly schedule, we are now growing our product line with that same standard of design. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility are applied throughout our community.

Only registered members can apply for jobs.
