Samsung Electronics America Sr. Design Director Mobile Products Innovation in New York, New York
Making the future is everyday life at Samsung. We’re seeking innovators who are called to not just change the world, but build a better one. We enable the best technology hardware on the planet, but our best is always a prototype for something better and our people thrive with a driven mindset – better builds on better. We believe that innovation and growth are driven by an inclusive culture and a diverse workforce. We aim to create a global team where everyone belongs and has equal opportunities, inspiring our talent to be their true selves. Together, we are building a better tomorrow for our customers, partners and communities.
Role and Responsibilities
About the Global UX Studio
We’re a unit tasked with leading the future of experience-driven development at Samsung. This means we get to build innovative products that drastically improve people’s lives; own and articulate good user experience design for Samsung; and we get to implement an innovation approach at scale. The nature of the work we do focuses on a 3+ year future vision, where we iterate with new form factors and emerging technologies to define new ways for people to interact with technology.
The team is a blend between researchers, technologists, strategists, and designers. While our individual strengths are in different focus areas, we foster a collaborative approach to define experience innovation. The Global UX studio learns through making and communicates Samsung’s future trajectory. As a diverse and relatively small group, we are currently looking to add another member to our team.
