About Gravity Sketch

Gravity Sketch is a London-based startup that is shaking up the 3D design space and transforming the future of digital creation. Just like Adobe revolutionised 2D design in the 80s, our vision is to revolutionise 3D design today. Backed by high profile VCs and investors from Silicon Valley, London and Tokyo, we are developing the first enterprise-grade immersive 3D design software which allows designers to create remotely together, in real-time, across multiple devices and platforms. We aim to transform the future of digital creation through disrupting the current design and engineering workflows, placing the user at the center of the creation process. Our product is used by thousands of designers in industries such as automotive, apparel and film, across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Responsibilities

One of the cornerstone challenges being solved at Gravity Sketch is to help designers bridge the gap between 2D and 3D content creation in their workflow. To this end, we have developed the first and only professional design tool for VR, which we are currently bringing to other devices such as tablets, smartphones and desktop via our relationship Wacom.

As our users will be switching between devices to ideate, collaborate and communicate with others, it is paramount that the experience between these is as seamless and free-flowing as possible. The Interaction Lead will be an innovative thinker and tinkerer, with a passion for solving these types of user-experience challenges and developing the best experience through research and deep understanding of our users. You will need to help define and uphold current design principles, driving the evolution of these as Gravity Sketch's offering expands.

The successful candidate will be a creative visionary with a passion to bringing real-life experiences into the digital world by challenging current thinking of technology interaction through research and extensive user testing. Finally, The Interaction Lead will work closely with the CTO and CEO to manage the design team's work in line with sprints and the product roadmap.
