Hi All, Savant is a great organization to work for, and a designer's playground. There is plenty of freedom to innovate with new technologies. Make stuff with us!

Experience Designer
Savant is an innovator in the mobile and intelligent media industry specializing mobile and software applications for media and environmental automation. We are inventors, artists, designers and engineers who are reconceptualizing how humans engage with their physical and digital worlds. We construct intelligent systems that provide designers with the fuel to push the boundaries of interaction and user experience. We are looking for Experience Designers who can round off our design team and push our products into a new era for Savant and the intelligent home industry at large.

The Experience Designer’s role is to be a key member of the Design team and to help define the success of our products. S/he will support in strategy, research, information architectures and interaction designs to create outstanding experiences. At Savant, Experience Designers help to transform business requirements into products that meaningfully engage users in their personal and work environments. The Experience Designer is also keenly in tune with a working design process and is able to estimate a project's projected success based on established milestones.

The Experience Designer is responsible for the development and delivery of business requirements, audience and competitive analysis, information architecture strategies, interaction models and other documentation.
