Product Designer

Mid-Level Product Designer

Access Explorer is a digital mapping and accessible navigation company dedicated to making indoor spaces more accessible, safe, and productive. Access Explorer was founded in January 2019 by American Printing House for the Blind. Our solution was designed for anyone looking for an easier way to get where they're going. It's the difference between finding their way and knowing the way. It allows people who are blind or visually impaired to independently navigate through a venue and easily locate entrances, elevators, restrooms and other points of interest.

It combines:

  • GoodMaps - An indoor digital mapping platform that creates, maintains, and controls accurate 2D and 3D digital maps of any given space.
  • LiDAR Mapping and Positioning Technology - Creating accurate digital maps of a given space and installing positioning technology.
  • CAVU - An indoor navigation mobile app that provides a trusted wayfinding experience to people who are blind and visually impaired.

We are hiring a Product Designer who will report to the Director of Products and User Experience. You will work side-by-side with our team and focus on CAVU and GoodMaps. As a Product Designer, your responsibilities run the gamut of user experience (UX) and product design: User research, user interface (UI) creation, wireframes, prototypes, iterative design, quality assurance testing, working with developers, working with clients, and interacting with professional researchers. Since we wear many hats, you will also have insight into business operations, funding, marketing, and product development. Be a part of a collaborative culture where your talent can shape the future of indoor navigation!
