You will provide thought leadership to resolve complex problems through effective communication and by developing a thorough understanding of our users.
The Vice President should be fluent in all aspects of user-centered design and be able to generate UX requirements when provided business requests, design graphic elements, and build UI mockups and prototypes to present to stakeholders.
