YOUR ROLE: UX Design Lead
While there will never be a typical day at Accenture Interactive, we have highlighted a few of the key skills and responsibilities for success.

UX Design Leads play a critical role in the design process by helping to bring abstract design objectives to life in early prototypes. We balance (at times conflicting) priorities between the brand, people, and technology, and we start the process of aligning stakeholders and team members towards solutions. In this capacity, it's critical to collaborate across design teams, be capable of understanding differing points of view, design and rationalize with conviction, and always championing people-first approaches. Gaining support from clients, peers and internal teams through confidence and design leadership ais a valued trait at Accenture Interactive and a focus of this role.
