Looking for a way to make a difference in the daily lives of millions
of people? Would you like to directly influence the design of the
next generation of products used by your friends and family? Join the
Global Consumer Design organization at Whirlpool Corporation!
Contribute to the impact being delivered by its world-class visual
interaction design team.

At Global Consumer Design, we are charged with assuring design and
usability excellence for appliance user experiences. We craft the
user experience on everything from a high-end oven with an interactive
seven-inch touch LCD
(http://www.jennair.com/flash.cmd?/#/product/JJW3830WS/) to the famous
and highly desired stand mixer
(http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/product/KSM158GBCA/). We
practice user-centered, experiential design to understand emerging
consumer trends and seek out real-life insights about customer
experience. We create user interaction design solutions
differentiated in the marketplace by usefulness, usability, and
appeal. Total customer satisfaction motivates our achievements. The
work environment fosters a culture of curiosity, diversity,
independent thinking, irreverent creativity, innovative
problem-solving, cross-disciplinary collaboration, and global
consciousness.

We seek individuals who communicate effectively in various mediums,
able to collaborate skillfully with industrial designers, usability
specialists, electronics technicians, and software engineers. Ideal
candidates should have graduate training in the art and science of
graphic/interaction design and a portfolio of successful, creative
new-media interaction design for consumer products. A keen sense of
vision and strategy in applying user interaction technology to product
design is impressive. Mastery of tools to envision and prototype
interaction designs is prerequisite. We expect uncompromising
respect, honesty, and integrity. Initiative, commitment, talent,
leadership, and passion are keenly appreciated, and rewarded.

The position is based at Whirlpool Corporation's global headquarters
in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Situated along the shore of Lake
Michigan, the region boasts top-ranked schools, unique shopping,
quaint cafes, fine dining, art galleries and festivals, wineries, pure
white sand beaches, and popular outdoor recreation in all seasons.
