  • 3+ years of experience in designing usable interfaces for popular web-based products in an iterative software development environment

  • Experience delivering high-quality design assets, from conception through on-time delivery

  • Experience collaborating with multidisciplinary and/or product teams (UX research, UX writer, engineering, product managers) on technical implementation

  • Thorough knowledge and experience across a range of design approaches, methodologies, lo-fi and high-fi prototyping skills

  • Mastery of digital design software (e.g., Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator)

  • Demonstrable experience with visual hierarchy, layout, typography, and color effectively

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Excellent problem-solving skills and familiarity with technical constraints and limitations as they apply to design for platforms such as desktop and mobile, Android and iOS

  • Proficient with animation tools (e.g., Origami, Framer, Pixate, CodePen)

  • Experience in mobile/motion design

  • Strong written and verbal communication and presentation skills
