  • Collaborate with UX research and content designers to produce designs and prototypes for use in research sessions.
  • Collaborate with partner teams within the Product Connections team and across product.


Skills:

  • Demonstrated experience with scalable end-to-end design, as a strong systems thinker with a high-bar for craft
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, problem solving skills, customer service and interpersonal skills
  • Deep knowledge of Figma, particularly components, libraries, auto layout, and plugins
  • Ability to work independently and manage your time well
  • Proficiency with prototyping as a means to explore and convey design solutions
  • Experience in building and shipping applications or software

Minimum Qualifications:

  • A portfolio showcasing strengths in product thinking, visual design, and interaction design
  • 5+ years of experience building and shipping end-to-end mobile product experiences or features
  • Proficiency in using prototyping tools to demonstrate how a particular flow or interaction will work
  • Ability to represent work to a broader product team and other leaders, clearly and succinctly articulating the goals and concepts
