Middleweight Design Engineer - July 2016 
Curventa have spun out a new company called Beyond Twenty, and we are looking for some fresh talent to help drive our breakthrough product to market. You will be working in the Studios of Curventa and Beyond Twenty a stone's throw from the OXO Tower on London's Southbank.
We are currently seeking an experienced Middleweight Industrial Designer with 3+ years experience. An impressive individual who’ll bring creativity, passion, people skills, and the ability to lead creative teams in an inspiring way. You will be an active mentor to your peers and help to galvanize and grow BeyondTwenty's talent while developing highly innovative design solutions that translate consumer insights and trends into compelling product experiences. 

What is it all about?

(1) YOU'LL BE CHALLENGED. Every organization talks about development and evolving your career, but here, it’s part of the job description. You’re going to show us what you’re great at, and we’re going to help you break into all the other things you’ve always wanted to do, from Design to Research to Branding and on and on. If you’re insatiably curious and ready to give your career all you’ve got by stepping beyond the title on your business card, we’d love to chat.

You don't mind getting your hands dirty and splitting your time between sourcing components, project management and design implementation. You're hopefully a great all rounder.

(3) YOU’LL BE A STICKLER FOR DETAIL. Our product has many parts and different suppliers, and we need someone to help bring them all together at the same time, and foresee upcoming issues. Confident project management and liaison skills are a must.
(4) ASSEMBLE & TEST. You'll have an aptitude for assembling and testing complex little mechanical assemblies to validate our product approach before going to production.
