SkySpecs envisions a world where wind energy is the most affordable form of electricity and therefore ubiquitous around the world. SkySpecs is helping to make this possible by automating the operations and maintenance of wind farms using advanced robotics paired with our custom-built asset performance management software, Horizon.
SkySpecs launched the world’s first completely autonomous blade inspection product in 2016 with a custom designed drone system. Since then, SkySpecs has inspected over 25,000 wind turbines in over 15+ countries, becoming the world leader in understanding the health of turbine blades. Identifying issues with turbine blades is only the first step. In 2019 SkySpecs launched Horizon to be a platform for SkySpecs to offer a multi-layered solution for customers that includes: data collection, wind turbine blade engineering expertise, and a place for all stakeholders to collaborate to manage and analyze massive amounts of data, spot trends, and create plans for high-cost repair campaigns. Ultimately, this will help reduce the cost and risk of operations for the industry.
SkySpecs is seeking a UX Designer that will create seamless interfaces, workflows, and experiences for enterprise users in the wind energy industry. Your work will primarily be centered on Horizon, a web (and someday mobile) application that wind energy owners can use to collaborate, analyze, and act on operations and maintenance decisions. The UX designer role is a high-visibility role within the organization, and you will have the opportunity to work directly with customers to understand their needs, work with the product leadership team on product strategy, work with Sales and Marketing to build go-to-market materials and to work with the technology teams to develop amazing software.
The UX Designer will be the first hire at SkySpecs in an experience, interaction, or interface design role. The ideal candidate is not only exceptional at their craft but is also a strong communicator and would enjoy being a design evangelist within the SkySpecs engineering and product teams. We expect that you will work to tightly weave experience design into every facet of the product development process.
