Cartier’s Retail Innovation Lab in Brooklyn is dedicated to imagining the next generation of Cartier client experiences and retail business operations through the blending of design, technology and human interaction. We are seeking an experienced Technology Director to join our team and lead the Lab’s research, prototyping, and experimentation in emerging and established technologies. The role works in partnership with the Lab’s Design Director and the Head of the Lab. We’re looking for someone who is excited and heavily motivated by technology, interaction & user experience design, creativity & innovation.
About the role
The Technology Director’s mission is to leverage emerging & established technologies to create smoothness in the Cartier business; to create enchanting experiences for our clients; and to explore the world outside our walls. These are done in collaboration with the Lab’s team of talented designers, strategists, and technologists.
Part of the TD’s time will be devoted to collaboration with the Lab team in creatively solving the challenges of the core concept project cycle, and iterating on solutions for the challenges present there (both creative, operational, storytelling etc). This results in high-quality, often physical, proof-of-concept prototypes for an internal audience.
In partnership with the Head of the Lab and its Design Director, the TD will also develop a new process that refines our production of boutique-ready public prototypes which emerge from the core project cycle. After these “Alpha” prototypes are tested in a live environment, the TD will assist with transitioning the project to other Labs and to rollout teams within Cartier North America and International.
Lastly, the TD will direct original technology research in the Lab. As the department director, the TD would locate and tackle solvable problems across the Cartier retail business, or find opportunities in bringing emerging technologies into the Cartier universe in some form, for either creative or operational purposes. In doing this, the TD has a powerful role in determining the best practices for use of technology in one of the world’s leading luxury houses, helping it to become an industry leader in sophisticated technology-augmented experiences, and demonstrating an approach to technological craft and nuance that aligns with the Maison’s legendary savoir faire in jewelry and watchmaking.
