Automotive Design Lead

Salzburg. Full time

Captain our automotive design team!

Ask any of our design experts – they’ll tell you that KISKA is a melting pot for fresh ideas, diverse clients, and a supercharged drive for creation. A dynamic change of pace from the industry standard, we live our lives in the fast lane, whether that’s designing in the studio or tearing it up down one of Austria’s mountain passes in our free time. Use your extensive background in automotive design and love of four wheels to hit the ground running and guide our talented team to a podium victory in innovative car design. At the head of the team, you’ll be an in-house brand and industry expert who finds outstanding creative solutions to our client’s challenges and concept ideas. Join us in a studio where “boring” isn’t something we’re familiar with.

In this role you will…

  • Bring your extensive industry experience to the table and generate impressive new concepts and cutting-edge creative direction.
  • Lead your small, skilled team with openness and purpose. Mentor when necessary and steer the team towards ground-breaking results.
  • Understand the importance of brand from KISKA’s position in the industry and ensure brand values and strategy are embodied into every output.
  • Work with your team to generate first-class 2D and 3D proposals for review and client presentations.
  • Confidently verbalise your designs in presentations and represent KISKA in external automotive client meetings.

We are looking for…

  • Someone well-established in the automotive industry who lives and breathes vehicle design – both interior and exterior.
  • A sociable and natural networker, who loves to collaborate and connect with other industry experts around the world.
  • 8+ years’ experience in automotive design (concept and production cars) and distinct contribution to the industry as a whole.
  • A self-proclaimed ‘petrol-head’ with design and motorsport woven into your DNA.
  • Very good English skills. German is an asset.

KISKA is an equal opportunity employer. It’s a no-brainer, but important to mention. Salary compensation is based on current market expectations, as well as your proven skills and experience. We offer competitive benefits to all our employees, from intern to director. Live with the support of our HR team and in the rich diversity and culture of our 5,900 m2 studio. Work according to your schedule with our Flexi-time policy. Play in the alpine playground on our doorstep or throw yourself into one of our social events. What are you waiting for? Your next big adventure is waiting for you.
