Who We’re Looking For

A textile designer with a passion for great design and a love of the aviation industry. In this role, you will collaborate with internal design teams to create original pattern designs to support customer-specific air travel experiences. More specifically, this means conducting research to support concept development, pattern design, and color direction that expresses a clear design point of view. Once you’ve successfully presented this direction, you’ll be responsible for creating customer-specific pattern designs for upholstery fabric, drapery, carpet, decorative wall coverings, feature art, floor mats, and other items, as required. In addition to a strong aesthetic, you have the technical knowledge to get the job done. This includes ensuring that all designs meet production requirements; preparing production files and coordinating with outside vendors to develop approved design concepts; creating renderings for presentation purposes; and documenting project data. Personality-wise, you’re a team player, adept at working with others to achieve successful results. You’re a born problem solver, excellent listener, flexible and diplomatic, and unflappable in high-pressure situations. If you’re a textile superstar with technical know-how and a no-obstacle-is-too-great attitude; a pleasure to work with; and love planes, we’ve got your dream job waiting for you.
