Key Characteristics for a CVPP Product Designer:

  • Empathetic: You are curious about how other people work, live, and think. You enjoy meeting the users of our products and think about design by visualizing yourself as one who will use it. Creative: You have the ability to generate numerous potential solutions to a problem. More importantly, product designers can screen out bad ideas and identify good ones. In our design environment, a designer needs the ability to brainstorm without ego attachment to any idea.
  • Communicator: You can communicate broad concepts as well as fine detail through written and graphical media. You can convey design solutions through sketches and visualizations, as well as through prose.

You will be required to digest and understand the many complex factors in successful vehicle design, from social and peer norms to the global regulatory environment. You will be able to successfully navigate those factors as you create design solutions.
  • Collaborator: You are an ego-less and effortless collaborator. You welcome ideas from any source and are prepared to build on them to make the work of your team successful.
  • Adaptable: You are comfortable working in the future - whether it's 12 days or 12 years from now. You can adapt to insights as they emerge, shift gears comfortably, and can decide and act without having the total picture.
