What we’re looking for:

We need designers who take into account business objectives, user needs, experience principles, and industry best practices

and development. Above all, we value experienced, self-aware and self-directed individuals, capable of being amazing team

players, across design, engineering, and production.

execute typical design documents such as site maps, user flows, wireframes, visual designs, and redlines, while taking a

hands-on approach to implementation and collaboration with software development. You will also seek user and business

validation for your proposed solutions and be receptive to input and pivots, as you develop new experiences and translate

them to multiple design languages (e.g. Material, iOS, etc.).
