Industrial Designer

Fresco North - Marlborough, MA USA

Fresco seeks an industrial designer passionate about solving complex design challenges both through hands-on, physical exploration, and virtually in CAD. Fresco iterates and prototypes daily, so you will be able to quickly realize, test, nurture, and evolve your ideas.

In this role, you will be joining a small, but expert team of makers and doers. You will be expected to bring forward creative and unique design solutions through sketching and concepting, physical mock-ups, and rapid prototypes.

You will be supported by, and collaborate with, our team of industrial designers, 3D visualization artists, and design engineers. We pool our expertise to deliver our clients the highest quality design outcomes.

Fresco specializes in challenging design problems, so you can expect to solve for ergonomic design considerations, unique form factors, complex assemblies, and soft and hard goods integrations.

Fresco is a small team, so when the need arises, we all come together to get the job done. You will be expected to be an active participant in the success of Fresco, which means having an attitude of “I can do this” and a willingness to take on tasks outside of your area of expertise to help the team meet their goal.

This is a client-facing role. You will share your designs and ideas and receive feedback in online/in-person client presentations.
