Position: Industrial/Product Designer

Location: Philadelphia, PA

Website: ROAR for Good

Job Description:
We are looking for a industrial/product designer that is passionate about leveraging technology for societal good. The superstar candidate has a mix of UI/UX expertise, as well as an industrial and graphic design background. You will drive future iterations of our safety product and be in charge of the visual concepts and assets of every channel (including our website, mobile apps, marketing collateral, POP displays, packaging, social media networks, and newsletters).

This is a full-time, in-house position in our office in Philadelphia, PA. The start date would be in late March/early April. ROAR is a social impact certified B-corporation helping reduce the incidence of assaults against women while addressing the underlying causes of violence. Through fashionable self-defense wearable technology called Athena, the solution helps deter attacks and instantly calls for help. ROAR recognizes that no device, including Athena, will solve the issue of assaults against women. That’s why, for each device sold, the company invests a substantial percentage of proceeds into organizations that are teaching empathy, respect, and healthy relationships to youth – the types of programs shown to reduce violence in adulthood. The company plans to begin shipping its Athena product in early 2017. Entrepreneur Magazine featured ROAR as one of the Top 10 in Wearable Wellness and Marie Claire named ROAR’s Athena one of the best wearable tech devices you need in your life.
