General Application

Nashville, TN

About Us

Ovyl is a product development firm working on an exciting range of consumer electronics, lifestyle products, and medical devices. We're currently expanding our team in Nashville, Tennessee to include another Industrial Designer.

About You

You are compulsive about learning new things, even if you’re not sure when you will use the knowledge. You pride yourself on being a good question-asker which allows you to refine vague instructions until you have a clear direction. You are comfortable with using power tools, but you’re careful enough to not make all of us uncomfortable with you using them.

This Application

This is our general interest application. Use this application if no others were listed, or if no others seemed like a good fit for your skill set. Please tell us as much about what you'd like to do at Ovyl as you can. Note that it may take us a while to get back to you since general applications are not typically a priority for our hiring team because their focus is required elsewhere.

Compensation, benefits, and perks.

All jobs at Ovyl come with the following perks:

  1. Health Insurance: Ovyl covers 100% of your health insurance premium. You pay the difference for a spouse and/or dependents.
  2. Dental, Vision, HSA: Ovyl offers these plans but does not contribute to their premiums.
  3. 401k + matching: Ovyl contributes 3% no matter what, by default you contribute an additional 6% (you may change this).
  4. Flexible schedules & WFH: Ovyl supplies a new laptop to use for your work and you’ll get to enjoy the flexibility that we love so much about being self-employed. Want to work from home 2 days a week? Do it. Is it too perfect to be inside on a Tuesday? Work Saturday instead.
  5. Unlimited paid time off: We’re not counting vacation days and sick days, we’re just looking at your work. We enforce a minimum of two weeks vacation plus sick and personal days but if you’re meeting deadlines, keeping projects on track, and making clients happy, we’re flexible on everything else.
  6. Company events: We take a day off work a few times a year to have fun, hang out, and get to know each other. You're part of the Ovyl Fam.
  7. Maker Reimbursement: We want to employ people that freaking love to make stuff, so we’ll reimburse up to $50/month of any personal project spending. Put it toward building a new headboard for your bed, or buying a really nice hot-glue gun, or getting an Arduino kit and figuring out how to automate your herb garden.
  8. Access to 3D printers for personal use: If the printers aren’t needed for a project, have at ‘em. If it’s something small, it's probably ok to just print it. If it’s something big or a mini production run, we may ask that you bring your own material.
  9. Stocked fridge and snacks: We’ll stay stocked up on healthy snacks, carbonated water, coffee, tea, and beer.
  10. Join Nashville’s best product dev consultancy: You’ll get to learn new skills working alongside a great team on a wide variety of products, from medical devices that save lives to consumer products that light up a Kickstarter campaign.‍
