Principal Product Designer
Logitech is looking for a passionate and highly collaborative Industrial Designer to join our ID Team focused on the Ultimate Ears brand in our Music Business Group in Newark, CA. We are in search of a Principal-level Industrial Designer with an outstanding design portfolio and deep experience in Product Design, Mechanical Engineering and User Experience.

The ideal candidate is passionate about designing next-generation products and services and comfortable tackling all aspects of the design process -- from user research to physical and physical and digital prototyping to telling a project story to the key stakeholders within the business group. Both working in the fuzzy front-end strategic development projects and equally comfortable on the factory floor finding solutions side-by-side with engineers.
Why is this role important for Logitech?
We work differently here at Logitech – we design highly polished, human-centered, branded, future-forward experiences across both digital and physical touch points. We prototype to learn, design to inspire, and we ship real products that people love to use.
The Design team’s charter is to design world-class, branded end-to-end experiences while embracing design excellence.
Once you are here you will:
Collaborate with designers with different backgrounds such as UX designers, engineers, design researchers, CMF experts and other industrial designers to develop holistic designs for our Music Business Group.
Design and craft thoughtful solutions addressing people’s needs and aspirations across a range of product experiences.
You will play an active role in our internal Design Team and be part of an eclectic mix of world-class designers and craftspeople in an international environment. As such, we are looking for a thought leader and conceptual thinker that is never satisfied with the status quo.
