Would you like to see people around the globe use sports watches designed by you? Do you want to lead the way Suunto’s products will look like in the 2020s? If your heart just skipped a beat, then this is for you!

We are a high-profile sports instrument and digital solution brand with a strong global reach, with two main product categories; sports watches and dive computers. We believe in design and brand-driven development, and in having fun while facing our daily challenges.

Currently, we’re on the lookout for a highly skilled and experienced Industrial Design Lead to take ownership of the future design DNA of Suunto. In this role you’ll be working closely with other talented designers and Head of Design at Amer Sports.

Go wild with your ideas and take initiative! You will lead world-class industrial design for Suunto sports instruments and dive computers, capturing the brand essence. In other words, your days will consist of driving and developing design language and strategy, providing day-to-day creative guidance for the team, supporting them at decision milestones of development programs, and developing the team’s skills and practices. You will have the lead design responsibility in both concepting activities and product delivery. Sounds like a nice challenge, eh?

What does it take?

  • Preferably 8+ years of experience in consumer product design with up-to-date skills
  • Creative studies that support the role
  • Burning passion for brand-led design
  • Excellent skills in conceptual thinking and ability to develop new, fresh approaches
  • Competent use of relevant development tools and the ability to take on new ones: Adobe, KeyShot, Creo etc.
