Seeking Up-and-Coming Industrial Designers

We're looking for a talented junior industrial designer with 0-3 years of experience to join our bustling Esslingen studio in a full-time capacity. Working with our teams of designers, you'll learn our unique design process and develop an intuitive sense for good form, detail, and a wide knowledge of manufacturing processes.


TEAMS is an award winning design firm specializing in global product-oriented user experience design in the areas of industrial design, interaction design and brand communication.

Working with our designers and engineers, you’ll be challenged to communicate your ideas well and think on your feet. Your complete portfolio shouldn’t just show the end product, but a start-to-finish process that demonstrates your wide-ranging concept exploration, critical thinking skills, and innovative solution-finding.
