JOB DESCRIPTION

Who are we?

Eva wants to help fill your home with beautiful, functional and affordable furniture. In less than three years, we have reached over twenty five thousand happy customers, which would not be possible without our laser focus on design, marketing and customer-centricity. We’re launching new products all designed in-house and we want you to jump on board as we accelerate towards becoming Australia’s leading digital furniture company.


Overview of the role

Our team is looking to bring in a Junior Product Developer as we continue venturing into the home and furniture verticals. This role has an emphasis on furniture design but will be supporting a variety of different projects. Ultimately, you will help us develop products that are easy to use and visually appealing to our customers.

As the Junior Product Developer, you’ll work within the Product Development Team as well as other internal and external functions during ideation, early concept development, physical prototyping, sourcing and market launch. During this process, you’ll also be assisting in the end-to-end process of prototyping, liaising with prototyping houses locally and internationally and refining the product within a set time frame to be made into a pre production sample before a mass production sign off.

If you live and breathe design, enjoy being part of a small team with significant autonomy, enjoy creative freedom and no multi layer hierarchy, we’d like to hear from you! You’ll constantly challenge the boundaries of all things design and play a huge impact in helping Eva expand its product line.

Benefits
