FLU­ID Design is loo­king for you!

FLUID Design GmbH

Direc­tor Indus­tri­al Design
Mün­chen

FLU­ID is an award-win­ning design and inno­va­ti­on agen­cy in the heart of Munich, Ger­ma­ny with a part­ner office in Los Ange­les, California.

We are a mul­ti-disci­pli­na­ry team spe­cia­li­zed in the inter­sec­tion of digi­tal and phy­si­cal. We craft beau­tiful pro­ducts, crea­te meaningful expe­ri­en­ces and pro­vi­de holi­stic design solu­ti­ons that are deep­ly groun­ded in user needs.

This diver­se ran­ge of exper­ti­se helps us crea­te pro­ducts, visi­ons and stra­te­gies for a varied ran­ge of cli­ents across indus­tries from small start­ups to some of the world’s most renow­ned inter­na­tio­nal inno­va­ti­ve brands and companies.

Working at FLU­ID means that you will be part of an enthu­si­a­stic, young and dedi­ca­ted group of out-of-the-box thin­kers from all parts of the world. We respect each other and share a strong team spi­rit. We belie­ve in working in clo­se col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with each other, which enables every indi­vi­du­al to dri­ve chan­ge, take owner­ship of new ide­as and initia­ti­ves and enjoy per­so­nal growth.

We work in a crea­ti­ve office space in a his­to­ric indus­tri­al buil­ding right in the cen­ter of Munich’s hap­pe­ning Gärt­ner­platz area. We love the gre­at and inspi­ring atmo­sphe­re here in the stu­dio – with its regu­lar fun team acti­vi­ties, month­ly lunch talks, and per­so­nal and pro­fes­sio­nal deve­lo­p­ment opportunities.

Curr­ent­ly, we are loo­king for you, an enthu­si­a­stic and mul­ti-face­ted Direc­tor Indus­tri­al Design to join our team.
