  • In addition, you will lead engagements and teams of other designers to build the next generation of tools and experiences. 
  • Define and execute user research projects and conducting user feedback sessions. 
  • You will be comfortable working in an iterative process, collaboratively sketch with designers, product managers, and developers, create wire-frames, flows, and mixed-fidelity prototypes; create beautiful, high fidelity mock-ups that extend the existing visual design system. 

What You Need:

  • Expertise with Sketch, experience using and helping to further develop Pattern libraries
  • Proven to work well in team environments 
  • Exceptional ability to story-tell, presenting work, ideas, synthesizing findings and next steps
