  • Comfortable asking questions and owning the discovery and information-gathering for features before jumping into design.
  • Organize & maintain the master files using Sketch symbols and libraries while staying in synch with other designers on the product
  • Define and maintain the aesthetic, voice & tone for visual and interaction design, including color palette, typography, iconography, motion implementation and style
  • Lead or participate in regular design reviews to ensure that the finished product adheres to the design communicated to the engineering team, and be ready to clearly rationalize and justify design work
  • Research-guided problem solving that helps you deliver thoughtful design solutions in the form of sketches, wireframes, prototypes or user journeys
  • Conduct usability testing, analyze user feedback and metrics and iterate on the UX and UI based on findings
  • Understand technical, business, and time limitations, and design within these constraints

Qualifications:
