Power to the overseas suppliers!

Fictiv is seeking a product designer to lead the design effort of expanding our manufacturing capabilities overseas. As the first designer on the international expansion team, you will apply your research and design skills to introduce the Fictiv experience to suppliers in Japan and other Asia Pacific regions. You will also be working closely with the product manager and the engineering lead to identify new opportunities and to implement new offerings in that market.

With this role, you will have a lot of autonomy to define, lead and design, but you are fully integrated in Fictiv’s design organization, with ample opportunities to learn from your peers, receive leadership coaching and build partnerships with cross-functional teams.

Due to the nature of the job functions, such as conducting user research and designing user interfaces in Japanese language, only fluent speakers of Japanese language will be considered. This role is based in San Francisco headquarters but occasional international travels can be expected post-pandemic.
