Job Description

In this role, you are responsible for designing market-leading User Experiences in HMI systems for different branded cars. Especially considering the use of light as information carrier, you are to challenge and innovate the way our users interact with the car, get information from the car, and experience the interior through the use of both exterior light and interior ambient light.

Your assignment is to work with how interior light can augment HMI functions, how interior and exterior light can be used to create light experiences, as well as how exterior light can be used to greet the user, or signal various states of the car to its surrounding. You will create light experience concepts based on the costumers’ expectation and brand values, and drive for exploring new ways of interacting with the interior/exterior of the car and the digital system. This requires both a UX and Interaction design thinking, and understanding for cognitive and behavioral science, and an interest for the technical side of light sequence specification.

You collaborate on designing, running, and testing new solutions through experiments and prototypes at varying levels of fidelity. From visual storytelling, wireframing, animations to functional prototypes. You systematically ensure that concepts are coherent, satisfy user needs and expectations, understand user pain points as well as meeting safety and regulatory requirements, and minimize driver distraction.

To create new opportunities, you will explore and identify focus areas for user research, selecting appropriate research methodologies, and synthesize user research results into actionable insights for iterative concept development.

You will work within the HMI Design department, a true cross-functional team where inter-disciplinary focus, curiosity and drive are highly valued. We work in close collaboration with all other design departments, as well as with Engineering and Marketing, to shape the mobility experience of the future.
