Principal Product Designer

Design and Marketing Newark, California


Position at Ultimate Ears

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.

Move fast. Speak up. Decide and own. Drive change.

  • Craft the future products and experiences of Ultimate Ears

  • Work in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary environment

  • Lead all phases of the design thinking process from conceptual, to strategic, to tactical, to implementation

  • Craft beautiful details, while keeping the bigger picture in mind, and vice versa

  • Collaborate with, and inspire Business and Product Leads

  • Solves unique and complex problems that have a broad impact on the business

  • Works in partnership with senior leader(s) to give input on design project objectives

  • Understand and interpret larger cultural trends into your work

  • Provide team leadership with the ability to run projects with little support

  • Provide coaching in the development of internal skills and tools to help the team stay at the forefront of our field

  • Mentor other Industrial Designers at level I, II and Interns

  • Communicates complex ideas, anticipates potential objections and persuades others, often at senior levels, to adopt a different point of view.

  • Occasionally travel overnight nationally and internationally

Key Qualifications:

For consideration, you must bring the following minimum skills and behaviors to our team:

  • Lives, breathes, and loves design

  • Has a passion for music and what it represents for people

  • Passionate design thinker and craftsperson
