- You take complex problems and scenarios and turn them into simple, easily understandable experiences.
- You easily work with cross-functional leaders to establish systems, rules, practices, and guidelines that benefit and facilitate work for the entire organization.
- Your work will drive innovation and elevate the product experience by designing flows and interfaces that are delightful, simple, and effective.
- You contribute to high-level strategic direction with your Product and Engineering partners, as well as Design peers.
- You work closely with designers, product managers, engineering, marketing, and leadership in a highly collaborative environment.
- You give and solicit feedback from other designers in order to continually raise our bar for quality.
What you'll bring:
- 7+ years of relevant experience in the design of digital products that have been released to the market, with a proven track record of success
- Proven experience delivering end-to-end (from brief to shipping) digital products within a cross-functional team environment with an iterative approach that leverages quantitative and qualitative measurement
- You balance intuition with rigor and use your powers in craft to make and to drive influence within the organization
- Demonstrated ability to think at a high level about product strategy but also act–with speed and precision–to identify and deliver the tactical pieces that realize it
- Thorough knowledge and experience across a range of design approaches and methodologies
- Proactive initiative that identifies problems and acts on opportunities to improve the product offering
- Excellent written & verbal communication and presentation skills
- Strong collaboration skills across disciplines that drive change
- Ability to manage and contribute to multiple projects concurrently
