Industrial Designer (3D-Printed Human Wearables)

OssKin is a fast-growing Montreal-based MedTech company shaping the future of human wearable devices in the emerging 3D-printed Medical Device and Orthopedic industries, all while using our proprietary mass customization software and 3D printing technology.

Responsibilities :

OssKin is seeking an Industrial Designer who wants to work within a small tight-knit Product Development team of Engineers and Designers so you can challenge yourself to build complex forms cleanly and beautifully, all while having the opportunity to develop our next generation line of production-ready orthopedic devices.

You have a strong sense of manufacturing requirements, but also a good sense of design / aesthetics / flow in art, products, medical devices, and human wearables.

In the role, the candidate will need to determine design requirements, plan and execute the design of mechanical devices, develop CAD models (SolidWorks), test prototypes, and produce clear ideation, conception, design, and manufacturing documentation.

  • Drive product development and features through their entire creative cycle : user research, ideation, specification, development, release, analysis, and iteration
  • Create Class-A production-ready 3D CAD surfaces and solid bodies using SolidWorks across multiple projects and product categories.
  • Perform in-depth on the field user research and user experience
  • Utilize good aesthetic and mechanical sensibilities to conceive elegant solutions to complex geometric, ergonomic and mechanical challenges driven by gathered user research and user experience
  • Communicate design ideas effectively through sketches, 3D renderings and presentations.
  • Oversee and execute the development and manufacturing of physical prototypes for testing
  • Collaborate with suppliers and engineers to evaluate product prototypes in order to determine production feasibility and costs
  • Plan and execute mechanical designs using CAD (SolidWorks, a must).
