    Job description

    The new Airbus UpNext demonstrator will pave the way to more autonomous flight capacity by integration of new innovative bricks including computer vision.

    This position comes with a CDI-C contract for 3 years, the timeline of the demonstrator.


    Passionate and impatient about testing hypotheses and bringing learning into the business based on concrete demonstrations, you must have an artistic spirit into a coder body! Able to create the bridge between conceptual interface with hardware/software reality, you have the ability to step back to have a global vision but also to deep code to concretise these concepts.

    As a UI/UX designer for the AirbusUpNext autonomy demonstrator, your primary responsibility will be to design and to follow the development of cockpit user interfaces that enable pilots and other operators to interact with the autonomous system. 

    You will work closely with a multi disciplinary team of engineers,  flight test engineer,  pilots and other designers to create intuitive and user-friendly interfaces that enhance the safety and efficiency of the autonomous system by:

    • Participating in the definition of a study scope and a schedule 

    • Defining the main concepts of interfaces and interactions for an optimization of the Human-Machine teaming 

    • Designing the user interfaces and interactions 

    • Testing prototypes with users and iterating designs 

    • Specifying interfaces and interactions for a hand over developer

    • Following the implementation of specifications for the conduct of evaluations

    • Capitalizing via documentation the concepts, and all the design material

    Preferred experience

    Your boarding pass:

    What you bring

    • In-depth knowledge of Sketch App, Figma, and Adobe software (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere and After effect)

    • Experience in using Protopie

    • Practical problem solving skills as well as autonomy and initiative will be expected

    • Experience working in an Agile development environment

    • Communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams

    • Passion for creating user-centered designs that improve people’s lives

    • Negotiation level in English is required

    • Ready to step out of your comfort zone

    • Autonomy, Adaptability, Availability, Accountability

    • Team-Player mindset

    • Values of transparency, courage, humility, empathy

    • Willingness to have fun.

    What you get

    • Participate to the Autonomy aviation revolution 

    • An environment that not only fosters your development in many ways, but also rewards it with plenty of room to grow

    • A shared open space office with highly skilled multicultural teams

    • Ability to craft your calendar with flexible hours/Opportunity to work remotely

    • UpNext communities bonding events

    • A high-achieving, experienced and fun team
