what we value

Quick, not as in within a month, or a week, no. In a day, overnight. And not without due finesse haan :) It's the reality of any high growth startup. The team needs to be swift, think on the feet, learn and adapt quickly. When you are an innovator, you will realise that time and space begin to take a back seat, we love people who experience the state of flow when they work. 

Innovative environments are full of ambiguity and conflict. And hence, being transparent and authentic is critical. Plus, it's so much more fun working with people who keep their cards open :) At the heart of design thinking lies the ability to be your true self, we believe that each individual's authenticity enables innovative thought. 

Yes we value fresh ideas, but the mad passion to turn ideas into reality, even more so! Beg, borrow, steal; hustle through, and make it happen! We appreciate people who can take initiative and own up. All the great innovators in the world hustled in the beginning, they used what they had and created history. 

We love folks who are not just comfortable with, rather keen on working with people who have complementary skills and conflicting opinions. Folks who can survive thrive in a diverse team!

Have you heard of the slogan 'first time right'? Yeah, we don't believe in that. We like to try, learn from our mistakes, and keep improving. Not knowing is fine. But don't fear trying. Design thinking and innovation needs people to be open to ambiguity and exploration. 

open positions

Complexity inhibits action across both social and business problems. Simplifying complexity demands clarity at both the macro and micro level of a problem. Design thinking helps us see the macro picture while behaviour design helps us see the micro, zoomed-in picture. Thus, we at TinkerLabs merge design thinking with behaviour design to solve complex challenges for our clients & partners. 

As our work across diverse sectors continues to expand, we are also looking to grow our team. For that, we are seeking design researchers to understand more users, learn from more stories and identify patterns to derive underlying invisible problems. The role of the Design Researcher will include:

  • Rapid review and sense making of existing literature to understand existing evidence
  • Identifying points of friction in user’s experience in the physical or digital world
  • Deriving actionable problem statements and design directions from a large pool of findings

We request you to send us 2-4 case studies that capture your experience in the above. Please remember to include the objective and context of the project and your role in the team so that we may understand your work better and evaluate your application appropriately.

Since our work is spread across India, fluency in one or more Indian regional languages is valuable.

Complexity inhibits action across both social and business problems. Simplifying complexity demands clarity at both the macro and micro level of a problem. Design thinking helps us see the macro picture while behaviour design helps us see the micro, zoomed-in picture. Thus, we at TinkerLabs merge design thinking with behaviour design to solve complex challenges for our clients & partners. 

While our team of design researchers, behaviour designers and business designers use clear processes to unravel these complexities, we also hold the responsibility to communicate our work, decisions and processes with users, partners and stakeholders. With this intention, we are seeking an information designer to convey information in a human-centric manner for all our stakeholders. 

The role of the Information Designer will include:

  • Creating engaging documents that help people pay attention and remember the information shared
  • Visualising information (words, numbers, images, diagrams) to inspire action

We request you to send us 2-3 pieces of unique work that capture your experience in the above. Please remember to include who the audience was/is for any work you share & what the needs and constraints of those audience were/are. We are after all a team of design thinkers and the human lies at the centre of everything we do!
