YOU...
- Are relentlessly inventive - You are constantly seeing and defining customer problems and solving them in new and innovative ways
- Are relentlessly customer focused - always digging deeper on personae definitions, research, data and customer motivations to drive your work
- Are a product owner disguised as a designer - is there a line between product and design? If so, you’re not aware of it and operate in whatever way it takes to make things happen
- Have a deep technical understanding - you may or may not be able to build the thing yourself, but you have a good understanding of how it will be developed, work closely with your dev partners and can strategically weigh the options to provide the best solution for the customer given the constraints
​-​ Are unconstrained by role and org - you build strong partnerships and gravitate towards people with big ideas and teams to collaborate with
- Are hands on - you live to get into the details, know the design and prototyping tools deeply and work quickly to express your ideas
- Can work autonomously, as part of a working group and also lead a track of work yourself - there are many ways of working within this team
- Know that a good idea is a good idea no matter where it comes from and are fine throwing away ideas that don't pan out
- Never miss a WWDC or Google I/O - you mouthwateringly watch new product reveals and your mind races with possibilities for your experiences
- Ship and iterate - your portfolio is the last experience you shipped and you have a plan for what needs to happen next to continuously iterate the product
- Love a good whiteboarding session - generating ideas and thinking about how they become extraordinary products real-time with cross functional partners is the highlight of your week
- Are always sharing the new and novel ideas that you come across with your team mates, and maybe even have written a blog post about a piece of emerging tech that you're particularly passionate about

TEAM: Small start-up-like team within a large organization given creative freedom to design with the sky as the limit!

-​ T​ight-knit, high-performing, remote-working team that builds influence and ships outsized solutions
- Well-positioned within the org and have the hard-earned authority, sway and connections to enable and ship ideas of all sizes

REQUIREMENTS:
- Proven understanding of full end-to-end, user-centered design processes, techniques, and deliverables
- Expert at modern design and prototyping tools and have a POV on which is the best and why
- An online portfolio showcasing your best work or better yet, live examples in the wild and a detailed description of your role and impact
- At least 5 years of professional experience producing visual design, interaction design, and user interface design, with significant mobile experience
