Senior UX Designer
Wikifactory is the world’s first social platform for collaborative product development which enables teams to design together, prototype faster, and manufacture smarter. Inspired by the workflows of agile and open source software development, we are building the tools to accelerate the development of (physical) products. Our community includes designers, engineers, makers, technologists, teachers, students and enterprises. Covering industries, including robotics and drones, electric vehicles, 3d printers, biotech, agri-tech, and smart furniture, our community spread across 180 countries and has published over 2500 open source hardware design projects on the platform.
Once headquartered in Madrid with offices in Shenzhen, Wikifactory's team members are now distributed across Europe and China, and on a mission to connect the productive capacity of smart manufacturing with the creative potential of product developers, through open standards and accessible applications - an "Internet of Production".
