UX and Visual Design Lead

(DSA31526)
The ID8 Innovation Lab at Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center is looking for a senior UX or visual design lead who are entrepreneurial, critical thinkers, and innovators who are energized to re-imagine the way people interact with each other and their content in a digital world. We are seeking makers who love getting their hands dirty to prototype hardware products as much as designing screen-based experiences.

As a senior designer that works closely with engineering and the leadership team, you'll be in the unique position to imagine the next generation of products and services within Samsung. You are a hands-on design leader who can work independently, but can also lead innovation projects from start to finish. You'll work with passionate and highly talented team members, stakeholders who want big thinking, and you'll have the opportunity to transform consumer digital experiences in a fast-moving environment.
