The Product team uses creativity, insights, and operational excellence to steer our product vision across Snap Inc. This team of designers, scientists, and product managers work in a highly collaborative environment to build the products and experiences that bring our community together in new and special ways.

We’re looking for a Design Engineer to join Snap Inc!

What you’ll do:

  • Work within the design team to create and iterate on new AR and spatial computing prototypes

  • Work closely with engineering teams to transform prototypes into shippable products

  • Ability to build, repurpose, or integrate technology in previously unknown ways to create completely new experiences

  • Ability to orchestrate and build tools to increase the velocity of other designs and engineers and improve the art and science of Spatial Design.

  • Knowledge of software engineering principles — and when it’s fine to abandon them for a quick proof-of-concept

  • Skilled in developing and shipping polished and performant user-facing software and tools.

  • Skilled in communication and presentation skills. You’ll be expected to clearly communicate design decisions to leadership, the rest of the team, and to engineers

  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, sometimes ambiguous work environment

  • Ability to quickly dive into an unfamiliar, complex codebase

Minimum Qualifications:

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Strong computer science fundamentals

  • Expertise with Javascript and C#/C++

  • Proficiency with spatial design, prototyping and development software (e.g. Lens Studio, Figma, Blender, C4D, Unity)

  • Bringing something new to the table: whether that’s a new perspective on our product, a unique understanding of a particular field, or expertise in something like AI, CV, ML, 3D graphics, HCI, etc.

  • Passion for Snap Inc. products!
