Job Description:


We're looking for an exceptional Footwear Materials Designer to combine their experience, problem solving abilities, and creativity to help build the future of Nike Footwear Materials. The category you will be working in is the Nike Performance Basketball team.

The ideal candidate needs to be a highly creative problem solver, who doesn't settle for anything less than the best design and materials solutions, to meet the needs of the consumer on and off the court. This person will be focused on elevating the consumer experience by crafting materials that are performance and trend-relevant for a range of products, while driving an emotional connection to materials for the consumer using narrative and storytelling as well as pushing the edges of sustainable footwear material design.


If this is you, you will be creating concepts and new material designs on a range of products for Nike Performance Basketball. You will work on elevating new technologies that influence brand new models, and seasonal narratives. You will also work on Athlete signature products and manage that relationship to help guide the team to creative executions and evolutions of Athlete signature models.

Your goal will be to aim for product excellence by partnering with key stakeholders cross-functionally on the product creation process and help bring the vision for the future of Nike Basketball products to life.

You will unleash creativity with a focus on sustainability, leveraging consumer insights to inform our creative response. Your focus will help drive innovation and embed cultural connections into our designs to create separation from our competition. The daily responsibilities of this role are wide ranging, ambitious, and exciting!


As a senior designer in Basketball, you will be working hand in hand with a large project team of different professionals (engineers, researchers, scientists, marketing, product testing, sustainability, materials development, costing, etc.), collaborate within the design community (industrial designers, materials, color, graphics, computational, etc.), and mentor other designers. This role will have direct report(s) and will be an entry level job manager. A player-coach role in which you will learn the fundamentals of people leadership.

This role reports directly to the Men's Performance Material Design Director.
