Our mission is to help design a city as a test course for mobility that enables technology to unlock human potential to thrive. We take this mission seriously and we take our team dynamics equally seriously. The Woven City UX & Design team currently consists of the following UX disciplines: Experience Design, UX research, UX Technology, and UX Program Management. Woven City is not a technology-driven city, but rather a city where people support each other and feel the warmth of humanity, and all technologies and services support the realization of this goal.
The work we do here is unlike any other. Our initiatives are complex and we regularly work with unknowns. If you’re a detail-oriented and strategic designer who thrives in an environment where you need to be scrappy, this team might be right for you. Are you ready to evangelize a human-centered approach in pursuit of well-being for all? If the answer is yes, we’d love to hear from you.
What’s unique about UX designers at Woven City
As a centralized design team, we have the opportunity to directly influence every project and program within Woven City. From traffic safety for autonomous-vehicles to the very-human experience of seeking quiet spaces or finding community, our craft is the background fabric of the city.
Our designers work with robotics engineers, privacy lawyers, business leaders, and every other discipline that will exist-in or be responsible-for the development and day-to-day operations of the Test Course for mobility.
We are each evangelists, researchers, collaborators, and friends to the community. At times we may have the opportunity to live among the people, and at others we will act as observers or analysts. Working in UX & Design at Woven City will challenge you to work outside your comfort zone and grow your skills in related domains.
Together we craft new solutions to unique challenges in the Test Course. We’re looking for resourceful, human-centered designers with expertise in some of these areas. No one person is expected to do everything; just bring your best self and a growth mindset and we can work together to fill in the gaps.
