flows, screens and prototype(s). Experience of Sketch & InVision (or equivalents)

• Develop and run prototype testing sessions; A-B testing of design components and 
flows, information hierarchy validation e.g. card sorting. 
• Use the UI design language, components, grid structures, icons, interactions. 
• Proficient in managing and refining a product backlog, ensuring all user stories and 
acceptance criteria are written in a consistent format.

• Excellent communication skills, being comfortable to interact with senior stakeholders. 
• An analytical mind, capable of setting, monitoring, and/or optimizing success metrics for 
the product. 

Additional skills: 
• Understand the implications of technology on projects. 
• Appreciate the impact of incremental and disruptive digital solutions on ways of 
working and the greater business. 
• Have up-to-date knowledge of the latest UX, UI and technology trends.

• Challenge the status quo yet be realistic. 
• Experience facilitating requirements gathering workshops from customers and 
stakeholders.
