Product Designer - Music Apps

Apple team


Do you love producing music on iOS and macOS? You know the marketplace inside-out, have tried everything that's out there, but from your point of view, there still leaves something to be desired. So you are bursting with ideas for improving workflows and creating new apps. You can fluently present your ideas verbally and in writing, both in German and in English. You can convincingly sketch out your ideas visually, be it on a whiteboard or in an app. And you love to work in a team, to have your ideas being challenged by like-minded folks, not only other designers, but engineers, QA groups, and product marketing managers, so you can improve your designs in an iterative process over and over again. You are able to understand user needs, grasp and distill complex workflow issues and translate them into clean, focused, understandable solutions.
